The football season has come and gone, but I’m gearing up for soccer season with the kids, and the way time flies these days, football will be here before you know it. I figured I would share my two favorite french fry dips so that you can pin them now and have them later. I know, I’m a bloomin’ genius, you can thank me later.
Since Kyle works weekends, I’m usually stuck watching football by myself while dodging Nerf bullets that are invariably buzzing around my head. It’s not quite the same as watching it with friends who also know the fight song, but it works. Some day my kids will know all of the words to the fight song as well, but for now I’ll shout it at the top of my lungs while they look at me like I have seven heads.
My favorite things about our weekend family sports gatherings are the food and the food. Hands down, the food. With Grady and Kyle and their special gluten-free diets, me with my low carb diet, it’s nearly impossible to make us all happy, so partying at home is often a necessity. I’m all about buffalo chicken everything these days, and my kids really miss living near fast food restaurants where we could get french fries and those chocolate shake thingies to dip the aforementioned french fries in. Since I have so many people to keep happy, and so many palates to satisfy, simplicity is of the utmost importance. Each of these recipes has the fewest number of ingredients I could get away with and still create delicious dips for your favorite Alexia french fries from Walmart.
Styles said this chocolate milkshake french fry dip was better than the real, icy thing from that one fast food chain. Judging by the fact that Grady ate his weight in the stuff, I’m going to have to believe him on that one. I didn’t indulge in any – I know, I know, insane – but by George, did the stuff smell delicious. I may have licked a little off of my own lips after giving Grady a smooch. You know how messy kids are when they eat.
The melty, cheese buffalo chicken dip is good enough to eat with a spoon, but if you’re the french fry type (because, like, duh! who isn’t?), it’s the perfect texture to dip into with a couple french fries. I love Alexia Smart Classic Crinkle Cut Fries for dipping because even after they’re baked, they stay firm and the crinkles hold the chicken on there really well. Are you salivating yet? I am.
I love finding new ways to eat comfort foods like Alexia fries. Their products are some of our favorites because of the super high quality and great flavor. Grady can’t eat white potatoes because they are a Celiac cross reactor for him, but he can eat sweet potatoes. He likes them by themselves, but when you give a kid a sweet potato fry, you better give him some dip to dip it in. But when you give him some dip to dip it in, you will have to give him a bath. And when you give him a bath, you’ll need some nourishment for yourself. And when you need some nourishment for yourself, you will want a french fry. And when you get a french fry, you will want something spicy to dip it into. And when your kid sees you dipping your french fry into something spicy, he’ll want something to dip his french fry into. So you give your kid some chocolate french fry dip, and you know the rest of the story.
If you’re feeding a crowd for game day, make each of these so you please everybody. Because though it may be difficult to please everyone, all the time, these two recipes hold the monopoly on people pleasing, fo’ real, yo.
