Slow Cooker Bourbon Chipotle Wings


Is there anything better than cheering on your home team with a cocktail in one hand and crispy wings in the other?

I think not.

Even though I do enjoy spectating a football game, I’m typically more interested in what kind of spread will be be happening in the stadium parking lot or kitchen table. If I had it my way every football weekend we would be consuming a plate of nachos, juicy wings, a basket of fries, a big party sub, and brownies. Doesn’t that sound delicious?

Well, in case you want to venture outside my personal favorite tailgating dishes, I’ve rounded up Over 35 Easy Tailgating recipes to make. Start with my personal favorite – Appetizers! Make a pit stop and take a dip into this: Tex-Mex Queso. Hop on over to the delicious grilled mains and don’t forget to wash it down with a festive cocktail. BUT! Whatever you do make sure to save the best for last…dessert!

Anyway, take a look around and get ready to make the ultimate tailgating spread. Let’s get cooking!
