Tailgate food is essential to an SEC fans' game day. And for some teams, the food is better than the play on game day... so when someone tells us they have a tried and true recipe that they even share with their opponents, we tested!
I met Nanette from LSU back in 2011 in Baton Rouge. Needing an easy yet tasty dip for kick off weekend this year, I went through old recipes and found this LSU Tiger Dip. Just as she promised, it's delicious.
Switch out the name and serve to your fans. They'll love it!
3 (11 ounce) cans Mexican-style corn, drained (also called "Fiesta Style" corn)
1/2 cup Duke's Mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 pound Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 pack spicy taco seasoning
1 lime's juice
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste 1 pinch salt
2 sprinkles of red pepper flakes-- or more for a kick!
In a large serving bowl, stir together the corn, mayonnaise, sour cream, green onions, cilantro, Cheddar cheese and lime juice. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Stir to blend in seasonings, then refrigerate until chilled before serving.
Nanette from LSU says they "always share this dip with fans from opposing schools in an effort to help soothe their impending loss! We've met more fun people from other schools over food and drinks. Some have even returned each year to tailgate with us!"
