Fall is the time of year when my sense of adventure really kicks in. It’s the time of year when things slow down enough that I can truly reflect on how much I’ve been blessed with and all that I am thankful for. When it comes to food, that’s an area where my family is less adventurous. We stick to the basics. Every family has their own twist on Southern classics, and in our family we tend not to stray from what we all know and love. These two recipes are staples in my fam and can be expected at just about any gathering.”

2 (10 oz.) cans shredded chicken [could also shred your own chicken breast if you’ve got time….but who really has time for all that?!]
2 (8 oz.) packs of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
¾ cup of Franks Red Hot Sauce
1 cup Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
2 cups mild cheddar cheese (shredded)
Scoops, Tortilla chips, Celery or whatever your dipping preference
Tailgating has always been a family tradition and is one of my favorite parts of Fall! You’ll find me in Death Valley almost every Saturday decked out in Orange! I always look forward to this fun time with family and friends enjoying the awesome weather (even if it is sometimes still 90 degrees in October in the Carolinas). This is THE EASIEST recipe and is always a hit for a grab and go tailgate table item! Hope you enjoy! Go Tigers!
You’d think I’d have good recipes but lately I order from BILO and pick it up!! I do have a batch drink recipe that has been a hit this season. It’s a Southern Living recipe called Summer Beer Cocktail but I’ve been calling it Tiger Punch!
