  1. EVERYTHING LOOKS SO GOOD. I love everything about this meal and thank you for making me aware of tri tip nachos at petco park 🙂

  2. Man, I want what you had! Those jalapeno poppers…the corn, the meat, everything! Awesome meal!

    OMG. I need that popper recipe !! Can you give an oven version of that recipe (for those who dont have a bbq)? Maybe put it under broiler in the oven?

    The bf’s brother JUST went to Seaside to get this tri tip!! He said it was pretty good (kinda expensive but tasty nonetheless). I’ve never visited Seaside – is it kinda like Iowa Meat Farms?

    That ENTIRE meal was a feast for the eyes. I’d like to be your token quirky blogger friend at these meals. Do you season the corn with anything prior to grill?

      You’d probably want to bake the poppers in the oven – maybe 350 for 20 minutes? Plus a little broiler action if you like it crispy on top. I bet you would leave the seeds in cause you’re all spicy like that! I like my dad’s method of just nestling the second cheese as a block into the cream cheese. I did like a mixture and I overfilled mine, so be sure to not overfill!

      I haven’t actually been in Seaside Market so I’m not sure! I want to go check it out though, it sounds like a fun little market.

      Haha, are you inviting yourself to my house for foods? 🙂 We should have a blogger potluck sometime.

      Usually we season the corn post-grill. I don’t think it needs it while grilling.
