On November 26th we made our FINAL stop of the Tailgate Tour in Nashville,TN where rivals Vanderbilt Commodores hosted the Tennessee Volunteers at home. This rivalry has been jokingly named the “Battle for I-40” or the “Country Music Bowl”. I can’t think of a better ending to Thanksgiving weekend than a Tennessee football game. This was a night game, so we were able to enjoy the day and not feel so rushed, which was very refreshing for our very last stop of the season.
Today’s recipe lineup includes 3-ingredient Crove Party Crackers, Steak Fajita Quesadillas, and Nashville Hot Jalapeno Poppers. While we traveled, all the ingredients stayed cold in our ORCA hard-side coolers. I never have to worry about any food safety issues when using these. ORCA coolers are the perfect on the go “refrigerator.”
My wife made the 3-ingredient Crove Party Crackers ahead of time, so they were already ready for people to snack on while they waited for the rest of the food. We love to serve these as an appetizer. They are always a big hit and would be delicious with Smoked Cream Cheese or on a charcuterie board with meat and cheese.
Recipe for 3-ingredient Crove Party Crackers:
*Double, triple, or quadruple this recipe, depending on how many crackers you want to make.
*Store in an airtight container.
The next thing we got started on were the Steak Fajita Quesadillas. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like quesadillas. These were quick and easy to make to serve to a large crowd.

For the last recipe of the day, I chose to make Nashville Hot Jalapeno Poppers. These paired great alongside the quesadillas and use two of my favorite ingredients- Allegro Marinade Nashville Hot and my Crove Food Co. Poultry Rub & Seasoning.

A huge thanks to our sponsors GrillGrate, Tennessee River Jam, ORCA, Cowboy Charcoal and Allegro Marinade, we were able to hand out FREE samples to friends, family and strangers who stopped by before the game. We loved getting to show off the products from our sponsors at this stop such as: GrillGrates for our Weber Kettle, ORCA Cooler Hard side to keep all our food cold, Cowboy Charcoal’s Charcoal and Applewood Pellets, Cowboy Charcoal Briquettes and Allegro Marinade Nashville Hot. We also got to showcase and cook with our new line of Crove Food Co. Rubs & Seasonings which include Beef, Fajita, Poultry and Pork and are available to order online. Shop now at crovefood.com.
I cannot believe the Tailgate Tour is over. We have had an amazing time, met some great people, and have absolutely loved having this opportunity of a lifetime getting to travel across the southeast to tailgate at football games. We cannot thank our sponsors enough for supporting us on the 2022 Crove Food Co. Tailgate Tour.
Thanks for following along!
