Game day snacking has never been easier or tastier than with Tyson® products and a homemade Avocado Ranch Dipping Sauce! Tyson crispy chicken strips, Tyson Any’tizers® hot wings, and Tyson® Any’tizers® boneless chicken WYNGZ* make the perfect easy game day appetizers!
Do you watch football for the football?
Or, for the food?
Umm, you can probably guess my answer (hint, food is my life), and while I do actually really enjoy sports, I can’t deny that I’m a big fan of the fact that sports and food go hand in hand.
Right?? Sports are the perfect excuse to get together with friends, hang out, and enjoy some really, really tasty food.
(And the crowd goes wild! 😉 )
All right, so I’m a dessert person, obviously, but I’m also an appetizer person.
It’s kind of the perfect way to try a lot of different types of foods without committing to the full meal size. For someone who is often indecisive and wants to try a little bit of everything, appetizers are just the thing.
I can try a little of this and a little of that without having to make cuts or choose favorites.
It’s a beautiful thing.
Let’s be honest, wherever there’s a football game, there’s usually some type of meat involved.
Part of the reason I love sports (and sports fans) so much is because the food served alongside the game is typically hearty, down-home, flavorful fare. For me, that’s just what I’m looking for when it comes to game day food. I don’t want anything fancy or complicated; instead, I want simple, tasty, and crowd-pleasing.
Three items that fit that above description to a T?
Tyson® Any’tizers hot wings buffalo style
Tyson® Any’tizers boneless chicken WYNGZ* (honey BBQ flavored or buffalo style)
Tyson crispy chicken strips
All of these specially marked Tyson chicken products are raised with no antibiotics ever, and have absolutely no added hormones or steroids. They’re amazing products that everyone can feel good about serving to family and friends when tailgating or homegating!
Any’tizers® snacks, in particular, are made with white meat chicken, and come in a variety of sauces. Their small size and flavors make them perfect for any time!
The Tyson crispy chicken strips are 100% all-natural (meaning minimally processed and no artificial ingredients), and they come fully cooked and crispy.
You can find these at your local Kroger store (or Kroger division store, such as Food 4 Less) in the frozen aisle!
Lastly, the Avocado Ranch Dipping Sauce? Ohhh, oh yeah.
It only takes a few ingredients and a few minutes to whip this dip up. Avocado, sour cream, ranch dressing, a squeeze of lemon, dill, and salt & pepper are all it takes to put this together.
It’s creamy, rich, and complements the chicken perfectly!
Let’s get eating!
- 1 large avocado or 2 small avocados
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup ranch dressing
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp dill
- 2 tsp lemon juice, fresh (or lime juice)
Remove the pit and skin from the avocado(s) and then combine all ingredients into a food processor. Process until smooth.
Pour into a dip bowl and serve immediately.
If you are making it ahead of time, you can cover it with plastic wrap (placing the plastic wrap directly onto the dip—this helps keep the dip from turning brown) and put it in the fridge.
Serve alongside Tyson® Any’tizers hot wings buffalo style, Tyson® Any’tizers boneless chicken WYNGZ*, and Tyson crispy chicken strips.
