Lets just say the food was the best part of the game...

There was a Packer game today and my husband and I decided to make a mini Packer-Party for ourselves. Well, the food turned out great, it just took longer to make than expected.

I made a taco dip and my husband made hot wings!

Cajun Crab Taco Dip
Take a large platter and arrange the following in order.

  • Cajun Crab dip - Found it pre-made at Pick N Save
  • Taco sauce
  • Shredded cheese
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Black olives
  • Pickled jalapeƱos
  • Scallions
  • Cilantro

Paula Deen's hot wings
This recipe is very good and very simple. They only hard part was we have never deep fried before - so I had my husband experiment with that. We decided to collaborate with Alton Brown for some deep frying techniques because this recipe is lacking in those directions.

You can obviously use a FryDaddy, but we just used a deep pan, some tongs, and a splash guard.

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup hot red pepper sauce - We used Frank's Red Hot and Smack my ass and call me Santa
12 disjointed chicken wings

  • Deep fry hot wings (Good Eats Episode - Fry Hard)
  • Mix butter and sauce in pan and heat through
  • Toss sauce and wings

Creamy Roquefort Dip
This is basically a substitute for blue cheese dip. I don't like dipping my hot wings in anything, but if you do this is pretty good.

1/2 cup Roquefort cheese, crumbled - We used Danish blue cheese
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
1/2 cup sour cream

  • In a medium size bowl, cream the Roquefort and cream cheese until smooth
  • Mix in the remaining ingredients and blend well
  • Chill for 2 hours - We chilled for about 5 min
