Thanks so much to Leslie for having me on her fabulous blog!
I’m not much of a football fan, or any kind of sports fan for that matter, but I love a good Super Bowl party. Cozying up with a bunch of friends on a February Sunday to watch hysterical commercials over snacks and beer is right up my alley. Which is why, instead of just your regular bag of chips and a jar of salsa, I like to step it up a bit. It’s a long game, so you need food that’s filling but still party-friendly. These Sweet and Spicy Hot Wings are finger food that can double as a meal. And since they’re baked instead of breaded and fried, they’re better for you, too. I make this recipe with a sour-cream-and-tomato dip, but it works just as well with ranch or blue cheese dip if you prefer.
Also, this recipe uses Ro*Tel Original Tomatoes and Chilies, but if you can handle the heat, go ahead and kick it up a notch with the Hot version. Canned tomatoes are super convenient, and if you’re looking for even more easy Super Bowl snacks, check out these football party menu ideas, which inspired the spinach queso dip I made for the playoffs party:
And without further ado…here’s the recipe! Enjoy!
