The contest has ended! Congratulations Bombtastic Belle!
I love football season! You normally wouldn’t find me in front of the television – it’s not my thing. However, during football season that’s exactly where you will find me! We even have put a television on the patio so I can enjoy the weather while I’m watching (or at least until it gets cold then we will move it into the garage). What’s football without a good tailgating party?!?! Whether we are at home, a friends or at a game, we love us a good tailgating party – food, drinks and a little corn hole!
As we gear up for Sunday’s game (Go Steelers!), I had a thought – what can I make that’s tasty but healthier than the traditional wings and loaded nachos? We know few people go to tailgate parties for the veggie – it’s definitely a time to indulge and enjoy. But it doesn’t have to be a total eating catastrophe. At Frito-Lay, they have portion control sizes make it easy to enjoy all your favorite treats – in moderation. The quickest way to transform a tailgating recipe is to use fat free sour cream and/or fat free cream cheese, lean turkey instead of ground beef, and fat free refried beans instead of regular ones. That’s exactly what I did to make our new favs.
Here’s my recipe:
1 – 1 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cans fat free/sodium free chicken broth
2 pkgs fat free cream cheese
1 bottle Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce
1 bag Baked Tostitos Scoops
Add chicken and chicken broth to crockpot. Cook on high for 4-6 hours. Remove chicken from crockpot and discard chicken broth. Shred chicken breasts and place back into the crockpot. Add cream cheese and buffalo sauce - mix. You will only want to add the amount of buffalo sauce that you can handle. We like ours hot and spicy so we add almost the whole jar (actually, I think last time we did use the whole jar). Make sure crockpot is on low. Enjoy with Baked Tostitos Scoops!
1 can fat free refried beans
1 jar small jar salsa
1 pkg shredded cheese (usually a cheese blend or 2% mild cheddar)
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 bag Baked Doritos
Brown ground turkey. Drain grease and add other ingredients. Cook until heated and cheese is melted. Enjoy with Baked Doritos.
Overall, fewer penalties, better tailgating...
