We had hot wings and goat cheese dip this weekend to kick off football season.
My husband is an absolute spoiled football fan.
It’s all my fault. It started when I decided to find ways to connect with him through his hobbies. I started by trying to learn more about football. While I did learn a lot about football, I didn’t fall in love with the sport.
While preparing for my football lesson each weekend, I’d plan a home gate spread we could enjoy during the game and that’s where our football menu plan began.
Every weekend during football season when a team my husband likes is playing, I make tailgate food (or home gate since we’re watching from home.)
This week I made a mix of home cooked and store bought. I picked up some Tyson pre-cooked deli wings from Walmart to pair with a new dip recipe.
The Walmart Deli provides Tyson wings in Bone-in Hot Wings and Boneless General Tso’s flavors. They can be purchased in a Pick 3 Bucket, a plated meal, or wings by the pound.
For the Goat Cheese dip I used:
2 oz. softened Garlic & Herb Goat Cheese
1/2 Kraft Buttermilk Ranch dressing
4 oz. softened Greek yogurt cream cheese
This dip is a really simple substitute for blue cheese dressing.
I mixed everything together until it was well combined.
At room temperature this dip is smooth and creamy with a little chunky-ness from the goat cheese.
The flavors from the ranch dressing, and the garlic herb goat cheese, mixed with the spicy buffalo wings was delicious.
For these to be store bought buffalo wings, they were very good. The buffalo sauce was perfect and the chicken was cooked just right.
The price wasn’t bad either. I spent just under $15 for three pounds of wings with fed five of us.
Home cooked wings are time consuming to make and a challenge when I pressed for time. The deli wings from Walmart are a great alternative.
