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 did an amazing job on our outdoor living space! Everything from the initial meeting to the finished product has been wonderful! Steven listened to our ideas, asked questions, and then came back to us with a design that was even better than we dreamed! The crews that came to work on our project were incredible. The final result is an outdoor living space that looks as if it has always been a part of our home… not something that was added on. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to add outdoor living space to their home!
