El Yucateco Bacon Wrapped Picante Chicken Bombs

Who else is getting excited for the Big Game coming up in a few weeks?!?!  We've got a house full of cheerleaders around here, so we like to cheer for our favorite teams!  "What color team are we going for daddy?"  That's how the girls decide! ;-)  Did yall see that particularly exciting game this weekend?  1 second left...pulling it out in that last second...OT...touchdown in the first few minutes of OT!  Talk about excitement!

For me, the excitement is always revolved around food!  I love planning fun menu items that are full of flavor & easy to eat!

I went to Fiesta to pick up some El Yucateco & Coca-Cola to make some game day menu items.  Right now at Fiesta, you can even buy (2) Coca-Cola 1.25 Liter products + (2) El Yucateco Hot Sauce products and get $2.00 off your deli/meat order.  More food...SCORE!

My go-to menu items for game day are always finger foods.  What's easier than filling up your plate with a little of this & a little of that?!  This time, I wanted our plates to be full of sabor y picante.

Pour El Yucateco Hot Sauce over the cubed chicken (I used 1/2 the bottle)
Squeeze the chicken through the bag coating all of the chicken; refrigerate at least 30 minutes
Remove chicken from fridge
Cut the bacon slices in half
Place 1 piece of chicken on 1 half of bacon & roll
Place seam side down onto a foil lined baking sheet

I also made a ranch dip with sour cream & dry ranch mix, added a few tablespoons of El Yucateco green Hot Sauce, mixed it up well & served as a dip for the Chicken Bombs.

Always nice to pair a favorite meal with an iced cold Coca-Cola.  It'll cool your mouth off & then you're all set for a night of football!
