I’m so excited to share these tasty Jalapeño Pretzel Dog Bites with you today as part of a a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of McCormick & Company. The opinions and text are mine.Are you a football fan? It’s no secret that we’re big football fans around here – especially of the college variety. But since college football is over now, ours eyes are on the Big Game coming up here in just a few weeks. Whether you watch for the football, the halftime show, or just the commercials, you have to serve up some fun football food! And we’ve got you covered with these tasty Jalapeño Pretzel Dogs! Don’t they look like such a great football finger food?! They’re sure to kick your football party up a notch! To make these tasty bites, I just slightly changed up French’s® Jalapeño Pretzel Dogs recipe! They use full hot dogs, but I decided to make things a bit more bite-sized! You can’t go wrong with either version! And you just need 5 main ingredients! We bought French’s Classic Yellow Mustard and French’s Ketchup as the perfect dipping sauces for our spicy bites. I love that both products have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives! Plus, French’s Ketchup is non-GMO, with no high-fructose corn syrup and has no gluten! The KEY ingredient and star of this show though is French’s Crispy Fried Jalapeños! These spicy, crunchy bits are made with real jalapeños and sure to add a kick to all your favorite meals!
Here’s the tasty recipe:
