Baked Buffalo Queso Fresco Wings + Football Entertaining

Baked Buffalo Queso Fresco Wings #superbowl #entertaining #appetizer #recipe

Right now we are in the heart of football play-offs. Our weekends are being consumed by football (not a bad thing in my book although I wish my team was in the play-offs but that is a whole other post to rant about). My husband on the couch, me in the kitchen, and every now and then we make a trip over to our neighbors home. If your like me you are in constant need of food storage containers. I’m constantly having to battle our food storage container cabinet to find what I’m looking for. 

Well, those days are over my friends. Target and Rubbermaid are here to help you get organized with the Easy Find Lids and get ready for the big game with convenient Take Alongs that enable you to create winning food spreads with ease.

Head over to Target.com where you can print off a coupon for Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid Containers or TakeAlong Food Containers. Then, the part I like to do… go shopping!

Rubbermaid Food Storage Containers at TargetNow that I got my shop on… now I’m able to get my cabinet re-organize and best of all I’ll have a way to bring all the delicious food I’ve been cooking up over to our friends house for the Super Bowl! I love buying the variety pack. Since I always need to store foods of all shapes and sizes. This is my go-to brand when I’m shopping for food storage containers. They last very long and of course have the amazing Easy Find Lids. Let me tell you a little bit about this wonderful technology…

  • Lids snap to the bottom of containers—never lose a lid or leave one behind at the party again!
  • Leak-proof seal prevents messes and spills on the way to the party
  • Range of sizes makes taking what you want easy!  Large sizes for wings, chips, salads etc., all the way down to small, half cup sizes for dips and sauces.

Now, let’s talk more about the food. You can’t watch football without chicken wings. It is just un-American. My husband happens to LOVE chicken wings. He is kind of a chicken-wing connoisseur of sorts. Me on the other hand… not a huge fan. I kind of find them barbaric. I would much rather prefer the boneless type (aka chicken strips) then on the bone. But because I love my husband I feed his frequent desire for chicken wings.

I just so happened to have some queso fresco cheese on hand and I always have green onions readily available thanks to my bountiful garden so this was kind of a no-brainer. I love the idea of baked chicken wings. No need to get out the deep fryer and clog arteries here. Within 30 minutes you have healthy-ish chicken wings. Trust me–my husband didn’t miss the greasy fried wings. I would also like to add that he still managed to get just as messy but thankfully not as greasy with this version. I served up the wings with some ranch sauce and celery sticks. This entire meal pack-ups beautifully in my new Rubbermaid TakeAlongs!

    Buffalo wings are a guilty pleasure for me for sure! These look GORGEOUS and I love subbing queso fresco for the traditional bleu cheese.
