Taco Chicken Wings My Way

I have been craving chix wings all week and last night it was time! My wings are a little different as I like to fry them a bit first and then finish them off in the oven. Another difference is that I like to marinate them for about an hour in hot sauce before I start the breading process. I also like to make enough so I can munch on them the next day, but that didn’t happen as the platter was empty by the end of our meal……… I have not used packaged taco seasoning in years and listed the ingredients  in this recipe which is equal to one package of the store bought brands. The taste factor and the price is well worth the effort (which is minimal) and most of the ingredients are probably lurking in your spice cabinet as we speak. So let’s get crunching and munching!

A cold beer went pretty darn good with these wings!

We enjoyed some corn chips with pimento cheese spread, celery of course and ranch dressing and taco sauce for Kenny to do his dipping thing in. As for me, just give me plain ole wings! Don’t forget to pop open a couple of Corona’s and enjoy………… Have a great weekend and see ya next week!

Chicken And Bacon Spread

Thinking of the Super Bowl next weekend, I was strumming through some of my older books for any kind of appetizers, dips or snack food for the big game and came across this recipe from a 1958 pamphlet put out by Good Housekeeping and it sounded interesting, a little different and quit simple. Another plus, was the fact that it can be made ahead of time for those of you who are having big parties; there’s nothing better than having your time free from the kitchen for all those guests! I love my old cookbooks and pamphlets and have quite a collection, one dating back to 1906 called the Enterprising Housekeeper with illustrations of handy kitchen gadgets for the then, modern kitchen, WOW! I have my chili all ready for next weekend, I mean, what’s a Super Bowl without chili anyway? Oops, I forgot the brewski, another must have! But during the day, we’ll probably just munch on snacky type stuff and this recipe caught my eye, it’s got BACON!

This recipe only makes a little over a cup, so if you have a large crowd coming, you might want to double or triple it. Serve with cocktail breads or crackers, or if you’re like me, I was thinking on the lines of using it for stuffing celery and maybe adding a little hot sauce too! Hope you enjoy…………….
