I love game day! It gives me a chance to show off my tailgating skills and highlight awesome tailgate recipes. If you have been following me for a while, then you know that I take pride in creating tasty recipes that are fail-proof and requires minimal prep time.
This dip is a remix of a classic chicken buffalo dip with a twist. It’s spicy, rich, and pairs perfectly with Sutter Home’s Pink Moscato. (Fun fact: Sutter Home was the first wine that I ever tasted.)
When you create this dip you can get really creative with dipping options. I always like to give my guests a variety. I added celery, carrots, and tortilla chips. You can also add pita chips, pita bread, and potato chips. The saltiness in the chips pair really well the spicy dip and sweet wine.
While creating this gameday recipe I picked up all at the local farmers market. The farmer’s market offered the best value for the price for the shrimp. Since the shrimp is the main ingredient in this recipe I wanted to shop where I would get best quality. And I was able to purchase a bottle or two of Sutter Home’s pink moscato.
I am a lover of good food and wine pairings, even it’s game day. The spiciness of the dip pairs extremely well with the sweetness of this particular wine, and the pairing has great contrast and texture. Sutter Home’s Pink Moscato is light, sweet, and refreshing. This recipe is sure to be a touchdown at your tailgate!
