The Texas weather is warming up and that means that our favorite season, summer grill season, is right around the corner. Our family is born and raised in Texas and proud of it! Our love for our Texas heritage is as big as our love for good home-cooked meals.
When I think of the best part of living in Texas I think of the dishes we make and company that we host. We love to entertain and grill for our guests with unique and tasty dishes such as the Chipotle Glazed Bacon Wrapped Corn we make on occasion.
You simply can’t go wrong with the powerful, crowd-pleasing taste of Wright® Brand Bacon available at HEB stores. Sure, you can grill plain corn, but the addition of Wright Brand Bacon and the chipotle glaze makes this grill recipe a one-of-kind dish that you will be craving all season long. Wright Brand Bacon comes in Hickory Smoked and Applewood Smoked which is available in 24 or 40 oz.
Host your own TexFest celebration and make this simple yet tasty dish! I devoured mine once it hit my plate and looked to see if any leftovers were on my kid’s plates. Sadly, there were not any leftovers.
