Game Day is pretty important at our house and we take our snacks seriously! I try and serve protein snacks that fill everyone up and taste great too. Everyone has their favorites and I do my best to accommodate with a fantastic finger food spread.

Tyson chicken wings, chicken tenders and State Fair Corn DogsGame Day Snack Prep

To prep, I head to my local Kroger store with my list in hand, so I don’t forget anything. Here are a few things I like to get, in addition to my Ranch dip ingredients:

  • Tyson Any’tizers Hot Wings Bone-in Wings Buffalo Style: Made with all white meat chicken, these hot wings are easy to make and have fantastic flavor.
  • Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips: My kids devour these in minutes! They are made with 100% All-Natural Ingredients and are perfectly crispy and tender.
  • State Fair Classic Corn Dog: These are my boy’s favorites! They’re not only tasty, but a good source of protein, made with no by-products and real honey!

Tyson products are so easy to prepare, they help make game day prep much faster, so I can get to the good part of the day, EATING. I mean, watching the game… ha!

I also like to serve tortilla chips & salsa, and veggies that go well with ranch dip like carrots, celery, sweet peppers, and cucumbers. I add fun snacks like sunflower seeds, pretzels- really, add anything your family enjoys!

ingredients for homemade ranch seasoning dipHow to Make Ranch Dip

Measure out all seasonings. Combine with dry buttermilk powder. You can transfer the mixture to a small food processor and blend the ingredients to make the seasonings finer in texture. This step is optional, but it does make your Ranch Dip look more traditional.

Mix 4-5 TBSP of the blended seasoning with 16-oz sour cream. Stir thoroughly. Store in the fridge for 4-5 hours. Stir once more before serving.

How to Assemble your Game Day Snack Tray

I took a large cookie sheet and layer down pieces of kale. Then I added my proteins- the hot wings, chicken strips and corn dogs.

Next step is to put the ranch dip at the center.

I then added whatever vegetables and snacks we enjoyed- some in small bowls, others just directly on the tray. I like putting small amount of the snacks in a couple different locations on the tray so that it’s easily accessible to everyone!

Serve & enjoy. Go team!

Combine all spices in a small food processor. Pulse several times, until mixture is more powder-like.*

Mix 4-5 tablespoons of the ranch seasoning (3 TBSP is the equivalent of 1 packet of store-bought ranch) with 16 oz sour cream. Let sit for several hours, stir, then serve.

This dip pairs well with a variety of foods like chips, carrot sticks, celery sticks, cucumber slices, hot wings, chicken strips, etc. Get creative- I even like it on French Fries!
