Tyson products are staples in our home. My son’s favorite food was, until now, Tyson chicken nuggets and the Tyson Honey BBQ strips are my husband’s favorite, specially when I make my almost world famous BBQ Mole Enchiladas. We had not, however, tried the Tyson chicken fries so when I was asked to come up with an awesome dipping sauce to complement them I was thrilled.  This mission was made for me!

I headed out to Sam’s Club to buy the Tyson Homestyle Chicken Fries and the ingredients for the dipping sauce. Selected Sam’s Clubs are having a Tyson Chicken Fries demo, so check that out. You can check out my complete shopping trip on my Google+ Album HERE.

 

A combination of fresh ingredients make this sauce ideal for the warm weather.

As always I turned to my Latino roots for inspiration.  I wanted to make something healthy and fresh, perfect for snacking or for a quick meal now that the days are really starting to get hot here in Florida.  Avocados, one of my favorite foods just seemed like the perfect ingredient, mixed with fresh parsley and yogurt, which gave it a smooth and creamy texture and for the “grown up” version I sprinkled some dried Chipotle which added  just the right amount of heat.

Great in a tortilla too!

I don’t know if it’s a Latino thing but for some reason I think that everything tastes better if you put it in a tortilla.  So while I was working late on the computer last night I prepared myself a delicious tortilla with Tyson Chicken Fries and some of that delicious Creamy Avocado Dipping Sauce that was left over from lunch.
