If you're a sports fan, when fall rolls around, chances are your typical Saturdays get replaced with game day celebrations and tailgating. We're from Baton Rouge, we get it.
But let's face it,cooking for a tailgate can be a bit tricky -- you need to prepare food that's hearty enough to keep your friends and family full before and during the game, you need food thats finger-friendly and easy to eat, and you need a lot of it.
To help you get the ball rolling, and score big at your next game day celebration,we're sharing some our most beloved tailgating recipes. Enjoy!
Dark La Mesa Sweet Potato Fries
In this recipe, we combine one of our fall favorites, the sweet potato, with our smoky, sweet and chocolatey Dark la Mesa Chili Powder to create a hearty and healthy game day snack.
Cilantro and Lime Chicken Chili
Nothing says game day quite like chili, especially if game day falls on a cool autumn day. In this recipe, we swap out a heavy beef base for lighter, but equally as satisfying, chicken and citrus.
Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings
Topping the list of finger-friendly foods, chicken wings are a delicious game day treat. In this recipe, we marinate chicken wings in our Honey Chipotle blend, which combines honey granules, chipotle chiles plus onion and garlic to give this recipe a totally unique and satisfying flavor.
