What makes these dogs different is the combo of spicy chilies and cool cream cheese. They're like jalapeño poppers and stadium-style hot dogs rolled up into one tasty bite.

White barbecue sauce sets these ribs apart from the pack. The tangy vinegar, creamy sour cream and hot horseradish perfectly compliment the flavor of the rich, meaty ribs.

I love to serve this healthy side dish with barbecued meats. The fresh veggies and hearty white beans are an excellent foil to rich, smoky cuts of beef, pork or chicken.
