Homemade Dipping Sauces With Tyson Spicy & Cheesy Chicken Nuggets

You've probably heard me mention it a million times before but Notre Dame football is a huge part of my family's life. We are obsessed to the point of borderline insanity. When we have game watches, there are all kinds of obsessive compulsive behaviors we must engage in order for the "karma" to be just right. I won't embarrass myself or my family by giving you the details but lets just say the atmosphere can get pretty tense.
Almost every Saturday during football season our entire extended family and friends get together at someone's house to watch the game. And while I love having people over when it is our turn, I hate that I usually end up missing most of the first half of the game because I am in the kitchen prepping food for our usual serving of dinner during halftime. 
No matter how much prep work I try to do, I always end up having to marinade something, mix something, bread something or grill something instead of getting to focus on the game. When our turn to host came around a few weeks ago, I decided to try something different. 
Thanks to Tyson's new Spicy and Cheesy varieties of Chicken Nuggets, I was able to serve a delicious dinner that had something for everyone without spending the entire first half of the game stuck in the kitchen. I did minimal prep work before the game and then all I had to do was pop a few trays of chicken nuggets in the oven during a second quarter commercial break and we had a quick and easy dinner ready to go in minutes. 
Justin and I set up a Spicy and Cheesy Chicken Nugget Bar complete with two homemade dipping sauces, salad, wraps and a panini station with sliced chicken nuggets and everything our guests needed to make themselves Tyson nugget quesadillas. Some guests made salad bowls topped with nuggets, some people had wraps or quesadillas and pretty much everyone had quite a few of each kind of nugget paired with our dipping sauces. 
We made two easy dips: a Chipotle Ranch and a Sweet Sriracha Yogurt dip. We mixed them up before the game and let them chill in the fridge until it was time for dinner. {Recipes below}

A bag of each type of nugget easily fed our crowd of 10+ people and everyone loved trying both the Spicy and the Cheesy versions of the new Tyson nuggets. We even had a few friends ask if they could reheat some during the 4th quarter.

Sweet Sriracha Yogurt Dip
  • 1 (6oz.) container of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon of Sriracha sauce, more if you like it spicier
Mix all ingrediants together. Refridgerate for at least an hour before serving.

 Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce
  • 3/4 cup of sour cream
  • 1-2 adobo chiles (canned), seeds removed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon powdered ranch mix
  • 1/2 tablespoon of adobo sauce (from the can with chilies) 
Mix all ingrediants together. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
