We all waited for it, counted down the days and celebrated the on set of summer not a month ago. But I think we call all admit now, in the heat of it, that though we are loving the extra time we have with our kids, we are getting a little tired of the same old ham sandwich for lunch everyday. And so are they! SO while visiting HEB the other day, I checked out the great snack and meal ideas in the frozen food section that could help fuel my kids energy so they can make the most of the summer play time! After all, the last thing I want to see this summer is my kids curled up on the couch taking naps instead of being creative and playing with their friends! I grabbed a staple around here, Tyson® Chicken Nuggets but also stopped at the section that has State Fair® Corn Dogs. I always forget about these when I am shopping but I know the kids and I both love them! So I grabbed a box and immediately starting thinking of how I could dress them up with creative dips! After some thought, I came up with three unique corn dog dips that I know will be a hit around here this summer! Avocado Dip, Cole Slaw Dip and a Mustard Dip are the perfect pairings for State Fair® Corn Dogs!
Psst: Keep your eyes open! There is an H-E-B yellow coupon in-store for $2 off any State Fair® Corn Dogs.
Cole Slaw Dip Recipe
One of my favorite topping for juicy hot dogs is Cole Slaw. I love the tangy kick that it gives a warm hot dog. So I thought, why can’t I turn this into a dip for corn dogs? I can get the same creamy tang that compliments the sweet breading of the State Fair® Corn Dogs and the warmth of the quality hot dog inside! Making this was simple. Throw everything in a bowl, chill and serve!
By the way, ANY of these dips are also awesome with Tyson® Chicken Nuggets. Impress the kids with dips that they never thought they would love with their Fun Nuggets!

Mustard Dip Recipe
My next dip is based on a standard topping for hot dogs! Mustard! But it is harder to put on corn dogs, which are so delish with it, by the way! So why not make a very simple Mustard Dip that I can use with every bite? So this Mustard Dip, which is also a great on for pretzels, is perfect!

Avocado Dip Recipe
This last fun and unique dip benefits from my very favorite topping on burgers and hot dogs! Avocado Dip is an easy, creamy and delicious dip because it only enhances the flavor! This is not guacamole but it is close and would be a great spread for sandwiches or nachos!

- ¾ cup salsa
