Bacon and Rotel Cups

I can’t believe that school ends for my kids this week!  I am so excited to spend summer with them and enjoy our new pool!  My friend of many years is coming to visit for Memorial Day Weekend and we are going to have the best time swimming, barbequing, and hanging out. Bacon and Rotel Cups will be perfect yummy appetizers to enjoy while we relax by the pool.  I made them for our Cinco de Mayo party and for a Happy Hour at my house this weekend.  Everyone loves them!!! They are easy to make and disappear very quickly. Bacon and Rotel Cups are delicious and super addictive, while the combination of ingredients is awesome! Whether you spend Memorial Day Weekend at home or at someone else’s house, give these a try. They are definitely a crowd pleaser! I found this recipe at: Pearls, Handcuffs, and Happy Hour.

      Rotel is the brand name for a canned tomato & diced chili product. You can probably find other brands for the same product. Sometimes you can also find it in different levels of spiciness such as original, mild, and hot. It is great in Mexican dishes as it adds a little spicy kick to a recipe.
