Watching some fall football? This Creamy Hot Sauce Dip makes every play a celebration.
It happens every year, I bring you another football recipe. You know I don’t watch football like the real fans. I show up for the food, and then pretend I have an idea of what’s going on in the game.
I know there’s more of you out there, so let’s be honest for a moment, shall we? The most important part of a good tailgate spread are the dips. They are easy to dish up and can go with virtually anything else on the table. Chips, crackers, veggies, chicken, and even a topping for your brats and burgers!
Dips are incredibly versatile, which is why whether we’re watching football at home, streaming the announcers over the internet, or actually attending a party or tailgate with friends and family – you can almost guarantee I’ll be bringing the dips. Guacamole, fresh salsa, and this creamy hot sauce dip will be all you ever need.
My kids favorite part of football parties is also the food and company. They haven’t quite hit the age where they actually want to watch men kicking a ball around the field. Well, periodically Venice will sit and enjoy a quarter or two. So having food they will enjoy is important to me, so that I can enjoy the adult time without them bugging me for food.
The Creamy Hot Sauce Dip is one that pleases both kids and adults. It’s the perfect compliment to Tyson® Any’tizers® Buffalo Style Bone-In Chicken Wings for adults. For the kids, some sweet potato fries are the perfect dipping instrument. It eases my conscience that the sweet potatoes are a tad on the healthier side too.
Sweet Potato Fries are really simple to cook up. Cut up your sweet potatoes, and then on a large baking tray, spread your Tyson® Any’tizers® Buffalo Style Bone-in Chicken Wings on half the sheet, and the sweet potatoes on the other side. Bake according to the Tyson® Any’tizers® Buffalo Style Bone-in Chicken Wings directions. After removing the buffalo chicken, if the sweet potatoes aren’t quite soft, spread them out across the rest of the pan, and bake a little longer. This allows the sweet potato to pick up a bit of that buffalo flavor without becoming too spicy for the kids.
