Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

One of my very favorite foods is hot wings. I probably like them a little too much. Every time my husband asks where I want to go to dinner I tell him I want wings.  I love the wing sauce and that I really like that I can eat them with my fingers. They’re great for a meal or a snack. Is there anything not to like about chicken wings? I certainly can’t think of anything.

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

This past Sunday I decided to run into Walmart to grab a few things that I needed before heading home after church.  I happened to pass the deli when I walked in. You’ll never guess what they had :)

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

Yep, chicken wings! They actually had quite a few choices for a hot meal.  Of course, I gravitated towards the wings. I got the Hot Wings and the General Tso’s wings.  I love that they were hot, fresh and ready. No prep needed. They were perfect to bring home  which was awesome because I was hungry before I even entered the store. I’m really excited about these because football season is here. Wings are the perfect food to eat while watching the big game! They will totally be my #GameTimeHero  It’s also really convenient that they’re hot and ready because you can just run in and grab a few pounds for your next tailgating party!  In fact Walmart is even having some in-store demos happening the weekend of August 29-31. Check and see if there are any demos happening in your area.

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

The General Tso’s wings were boneless and the sauce was sweet and spicy.  They were very good and will definitely be a hit with my hubby and his friends.

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

My absolute favorite though were the traditional hot wings. Hot wings are always a hit with our game day crowd.  They had a nice spice and had just the right amount of sauce. Yum!

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

I was so hungry when I got home that I didn’t want to make any thing special so I paired them with some easy peasy dipping sauces like the Kraft Creamy Italian and the Buttermilk Ranch. My favorite was the Ranch, but they were both great.  I love that it’s so simple. We need to have LOTS of wings for our football gatherings and I can put out a couple of dishes with the dressings.

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

Oh my goodness did they hit the spot. In fact, because the prices at the deli were so awesome I got enough wings for dinner too. I told you I really like wings ;)

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

I’ve also been on a lime kick.  I’m not sure why, but I’ve been using it a lot with spicy food.  It’s a great ingredient.  I got an idea to use with the ranch. I made a Chipotle Ranch Dip.  I combined a 1/2 cup of ranch, one chipotle pepper in adobe sauce, and the juice of one lime in the food processor. It was super simple.

#ad Hot Wings with Chipotle Ranch Dip #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias #Recipe #GameDay donnahup

The result was delicious!  This dip will definitely be a keeper for game day! The next time you need a hot meal or food to feed some hungry football fans stop by the Walmart Deli and pick up some wings! You can also grab all the ingredients for the Chipotle Ranch Dip there. It seriously took 5 minutes.  What is your favorite dipping sauce for your wings?

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip Recipe – Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

I can hardly believe that I’ve been a Midwesterner for a year and a half already! On one hand it seems like just yesterday we packed up all our belongings and drove from South Florida, yet on the other hand it seems like I’ve always lived here. I think I’m so comfortable in my new home because of the people.  I absolutely love Midwest hospitality. It’s just not the same in south FL.  There are other things that were new – snow, leaves that change color, demolition derbys, 4H, and good food (different than the good food found in Florida).  I have enjoyed all of them!  One of the things I really enjoy is eating here. When I have get togethers everyone brings such yummy food.  I’ve been working on my culinary skills for these get together occasions.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

I really wanted to come up with a new dip to bring.  I was clipping my coupons for my shopping trip this week and found a whole slew of Kraft Coupons! This gave me inspiration.  What’s even more awesome is my dip takes only 4 ingredients and all 4 ingredients had a coupon. Score! Kraft’s printable coupons available for a limited time only. You can find the ones I printed plus many more here:

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

I headed to Walmart with my Kraft coupons and picked up my ingredients.  They were all on the outer aisle with the exception of the Mayo which I found with the other condiments.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

I used 3/4 cup of the Kraft Shredded Three Cheeses with a touch of Philadelphia, 1 8 ounce tub of Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream cheese spread, 1/3 cup Kraft Mayo, and 4 slices of cooked Oscar Mayer Bacon.  The bacon is not pictured here because I already started cooking it.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

While the bacon was cooking, I mixed together the other 3 ingredients and preheated the oven to 350 degrees. The really nice thing about the spread is that you do not have to let it soften so it mixed together very nicely.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

Once the bacon was cooked and drained, I crumbled it and mixed it together in the cheese mix.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

Spread it into a small greased pan and cook for 15 minutes.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

After the 15 minutes remove from the oven and let it stand for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, mix and serve warm.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

I topped mine with some of the shredded cheese and chives.  I served it with corn chips, but really it goes well with anything including a spoon.  Seriously I had to bring it over to a friend because I could have eaten the whole bowl by myself. It’s seriously delicious.

Cheesy Bacon & Chive Dip #Recipe - Simple and Inexpensive with help from Kraft Coupons #PackedWithSavings #shop donnahup

This is so good and I will definitely be bringing it to our next get together.  What are your favorite foods to bring to get togethers and potlucks?

Taco Burger Recipe

Easy 10 Minute Meal - Taco Burger #Recipe #Vegetarian donnahup

You have a long day at work and you’re exhausted.  Everyone is hungry and wants to know what you are going to do about it. This includes other adults in the house.  Does this sound familiar?  I know often even when it’s just me I have to make dinner for it’s so much easier to grab something packaged and eat it.  I always feel better when I prepare my food, but the truth is unless I have a plan or specific ingredients set aside it’s easier said than done.  This is a super easy recipe and it literally takes 10 minutes!

Easy 10 Minute Meal - Taco Burger #Recipe #Vegetarian donnahup

I start out by cooking a veggie patty, like a boca burger.  While the patties are cooking I preheat the oven to warm up the crunchy taco shells.  Burgers AND Tacos?! This recipe is the best of both worlds, my friend!

Easy 10 Minute Meal - Taco Burger #Recipe #Vegetarian donnahup

Once the burger is done cooking, while still in the pan I top with shredded cheese and let it melt.  I use the Kraft Mexican blend.

Easy 10 Minute Meal - Taco Burger #Recipe #Vegetarian donnahup

While the cheese is melting I spread guacamole on one side of the taco.  I love the Wholly Guac snack sizes. They’re perfect for a few taco burgers.

Easy 10 Minute Meal - Taco Burger #Recipe #Vegetarian donnahup

I have also found that it is easier to put the salsa on while the burger is still in the pan and then transfer the burger into the taco shell.

Easy 10 Minute Meal - Taco Burger #Recipe #Vegetarian donnahup

Doesn’t that look delicious?! YUM!!  This recipe is very easy to customize too if you have someone that doesn’t want salsa or if you wanted to add sour cream, etc.  You could also use ground meat if you weren’t into veggie burgers ;)

I also like Oregano and Nutritional Yeast .   If you’re not vegan or dairy free you could add cheese. That is why I use the Nutritional Yeast.  It gives it a cheesy taste.

I have found my new favorite snack food and it could not be easier!  It also costs less than $1 to make which is an added bonus.  You can pick up a can of chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans) for about $0.79 at the market.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Rinse beans and drain them. Then spread them on a baking pan and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.

3. Enjoy!

I enjoy them plain and seasoned. My favorite seasoning is a buffalo flavored one, I sprinkle the following on the chickpeas before baking:

  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 3 tbsp hot sauce (I used Frank’s)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of salt

You can add all sorts of seasonings.  These little guys are so delicious!
