Recipe of the Month: Tasty Touchdown

January 27, 2017 Outdoor Cooking

The big game is less than a week away and most everyone has their party plans tackled.  But what if you’re the party house … are you ready to score some tasty touchdowns for your guests?  When throwing a patio party, your team is always huddled around the food, so with the dips, drinks and sweets being the MVP of the celebration … you want to make sure it’s something to remember.  When you can’t predict if the game will be good, the halftime show will be in tune or the commercials will even be funny, you have to make sure the snacks are the star of the show.

We have tons of tasty blogs with great game day grub like a Party on the Patio Cocktail, Grilled Chicken and Veggie Enchiladas, Green Chili Cheeseburgers, even Pizza on the Grill!  Or you can visit out Pinterest page for hundreds of festive foods perfect for the big game.

But our “Recipe of the Month” goes to ….

Ingredients

2 ­ 8 oz. blocks of cream cheese

Chicken meat from 2­3 chicken thighs (or breasts if you want white meat)

1/2 of a medium yellow onion, diced

2 cloves garlic minced (use dried garlic if preferred)

1 cup of Texas Pete’s Wing Sauce (or your favorite sauce)

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup ranch dressing (optional)

*Optional Garnish with green onions, add bleu cheese crumbles and mix in dip

Directions

Cream cheese needs to be room temperature so you can mix the ingredients together. Start by adding the chicken, onion, garlic and cheddar cheese and mix thoroughly. Then add your wing sauce and ranch (you may want to reduce the amount of wing sauce to ensure it is not too runny if adding ranch).

You can add the bleu cheese crumbles now. (Many people do not like the bleu cheese, so try adding them on top of half of the dip in an 8 x 8″ pan. That way you have some with bleu cheese and some without.)

You can bake it at 325°F for 20 minutes or until it is bubbly all around the edges. Finish by garnishing with the green onion.

NOTE: This also works well in a crock pot. Just dump all the ingredients together on high until ready, then lower heat to warm.

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios was a pleasure to work with from first call to final detail on our patio cover and flooring. Everyone we worked with — office personnel on scheduling, crews on fast and quality work, and Steven helping with design ideas and scheduling and issue resolution — were all what contracting should be. We had been looking at our odd roofline, chimney location and numerous angles for over 10 years and received numerous quotes and estimates that just didn’t work or the contractors flatly said they couldn’t do what we were looking for . . . until Steven and TCP arrived and did exactly what we wanted (and more) on time, on budget, no hassle. We love our new space and receive many compliments on the look and functionality of the space and design. We would love to have TCP and Steven do another project for us and we recommend them to anyone.
