I love any excuse to throw a party. Maybe that's why I loved event planning. Give me even a hint of a theme, and I've got every detail played out in my mind before you can say "Let's plan it." But elaborately catered soirees aside, my favorite types of parties are those thrown at home, centered around good snacks, family and friends, and of course if you grew up in the Midwest like me, football. Now I'll admit, my daughter still calls anything sport related "baseball" and my son is usually more interested in his telescope unless there's a certain Miami basketball game on. But, any excuse to gather around the couch and tv and watch the adults cheer excitedly is enough for them. Of course it helps if there is dip-able chicken. Check out this #SuperMoments video that Tyson® shared with us!:
What I love about Tyson® Any’tizers is how simple it is to please everyone, and have food ready for your game day party just in time to actually enjoy the party yourself. Paired with Kraft Ranch Dipping Sauces, it's easy to score a touchdown with hungry family and friends. In preparation for the Big Game, Kraft Ranch Dipping Sauces even come with your very own Super Moments playbook around the bottle. Full of game day recipe ideas and fun inspiration, this little playbook helped me to come up with 'Wrapitizers' for more variety on my game day table. Even better, there is a whole website full of Super Moment ideas here. I found both the Tyson® Any’tizers and Kraft Ranch Dipping Sauces at my nearby Walmart, in somewhat of a last minute scramble this past weekend when my husband texted me about the game, and I realized I hadn't planned out my football food for that night. I was in luck, too, because right now they are running an end-cap rollback promotion (in your freezer snacks section) to get Tyson® Any’tizers for only $5.98. And maybe I am just a boring dressing kind of girl, but I had no idea Kraft made so many types of Dipping Sauces! Admittedly, the Chicken Fries and Popcorn Chicken took longer to cook than the 15-20 minutes suggested on the package. But, I have to say it was probably my fault for cramming them all on one baking sheet, as I tend to stubbornly use directions as a guide. Probably an extra ten minutes was necessary, but everything still came out golden and crispy, which is comforting to know they are close to fail-proof. (Is there anything worse than soggy breaded chicken?) Plus, it gave me a little extra time to prep my wraps. Using inspiration from the Kraft playbook and the Super Moments website, I came up with two different versions. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:9][amd-zlrecipe-recipe:10] My kids' favorites were definitely the Chicken Fries, and I have to admit I was pretty impressed with how easily my Game Day Snacks display came together using frozen appetizers. Plus, I think I may now be addicted to the dipping sauces. I keep coming up with a way to use them in every snack and lunch I make now. Even though my home team lost this weekend, we're still looking forward to the Big Game and more good snacks like these. Have an awesome football food idea?
