Create Your Own Stadium Experience

Summer afternoons and evenings are the perfect time to kick back and watch the Big Game. Invite your friends and family members over to create your own Stadium Experience with some of these DIY décor and stadium recipes. 

Dips for During the Game:

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe, how to below (adapted from http://www.sincerelymindy.com/2014/01/18/spice-gameday-buffalo-chicken-dip/)

  • Ingredients:
    • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA cream cheese, softened
    • 1/2 cup FRANK’S® REDHOT® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce or FRANK’S® REDHOT® Buffalo Wings Sauce 
    • 1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing (I used ranch)
    • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken.
    • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or your favorite shredded cheese (I used a combination of white and yellow sharp cheddar cheeses)
  • Directions:
  1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F.
  2. COMBINE all ingredients in a 1-quart baking dish, except for chicken.  Mix chicken in last to prevent it from falling apart too much. (I also added a handful of shredded chicken and more cheese to the top of the mixture to form a crust.)
  3. BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through.  (I broiled the dip for another 5-7 minutes to brown the cheesy crust.)
  4. SERVE warm with crackers, Tortilla chips, or vegetables.

Guacamole Recipe, how to below (adapted from http://www.cookingclassy.com/2013/06/guacamole/)

  • Ingredients
    • 4 ripe Hass Avocados, seeded, diced and scooped from peel (about 26 oz before peeled and cored)
    • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
    • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp finely chopped red onion
    • 1 large Roma tomato, seeds and pulp removed then diced
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
    • 1 - 3 pinches cayenne pepper, optional
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Directions
    • Partially mash avocados with a fork on a cutting board or in a large bowl, pour lime juice over top and continue to mash to reach desired consistency. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Run chopped red onions under cold water (to remove harsh bite from onion), drain well and add onions to avocado mixture, along with diced tomato, garlic, cilantro, cayenne pepper and season with salt and pepper to taste, stir to combine. Serve with tortilla chips or alongside Mexican entrees.
