Homegating Essentials

My favorite parts of football season are the delicious game day eats and the lazy Sundays spent hanging around the TV with my family.

When it comes to game day eats, I like to keep our menu simple.

I look for recipes that are quick and easy to prepare, and can be enjoyed right in front of the television so that no one misses a minute of the game.

Plus, quick recipes mean that I get to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with my family.

Frank's® RedHot, French’s® Mustard and Stubb’s® Bar-B-Q sauce

I shop at Walmart for all of our game day needs. This week at Walmart I stocked up homegating essentials, including Frank’s® RedHot, French’s® Mustard and Stubb’s® Bar-B-Q sauce. There are so many recipes that you can make with these 3 ingredients that the possibilities are really endless.

This Sunday I decided to make crispy jalapeño loaded nachos featuring Frank’s® RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce.

I love how Frank’s® RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce packs a lot of flavor, with the perfect amount of heat. Enough heat to give my recipes a kick, but not so much heat that it starts a fire in my mouth!

  1. Exactly what Christina said above. I am drooling looking at these they look so good and I love spicy food but my heartburn and my Crohn’s does not like spicy food. Dad said I do sneak Frank’s red hot into my food sometimes .
