It’s, finally, football season! Who else is excited for crunch time? When I think about football I automatically think of football parties and tailgates. And that, of course, leads to thinking about tailgate food! Growing up in Miami I followed the college teams and tailgating was a huge part of our game day routine. My friends and I always put that latino spin on the typical tailgate menu which lead me to develop my, hands down, favorite tailgate food – Mango Coke Chicken Wings.

This season I’ll be stopping by Sam’s Club to grab my football food supplies. We usually have quite the crowd tailgating with us so I need to prep my tailgate food in super-sizes. I have been using Sam’s Club’s pick-up in store feature a lot lately, which I have found very convenient.  I just place my order online and pick it up later. No hassle, at all. I can focus on the food prep and some of our family favorite game day snacks.  My all time favorite is the chicken wing.  But, as I mentioned, I make mine a little differently than the BBQ or Buffalo wings you might normally nosh on, on game day.
To make my all-time, favorite Mango Coke Chicken Wings you’ll need some Coke, and I recommend picking up a Coca-Cola 28 pack, the ideal tailgating size, at Sam’s Club.  You’ll use a few cans of Coke to make my favorite Chicken wings as it compliments the key ingredient in my recipe – Mango! The taste of Coke and mango marinated chicken wings is incredible.  They are also very simple to prepare ahead of time and bring to the game. You can either make them at home and keep them warm until tailgate time or throw your wings on the portable grill. It’s up to you, they’ll taste delicious either way!
