With football season upon us and the heatwaves finally in the rearview mirror, it’s time to focus on gooey, delicious finger foods that get everyone cheering in time for kickoff!

Mozzarella sticks are the highlight of every get-together. Everyone pushes the bowl of pretzels aside when these puppies come out of the kitchen. But as much as I love the original, the same old stick-and-sauce can get a little boring. I like a little heat and a kiss of sweet in my snacks so I teamed up with Abuelito’s Sauces and Seasonings (#ad) to make my sticks with Caribbean Heat and they will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF. Dunk them in some nice cool, creamy blue cheese and you’ve got yourself a PAR-TAY in your mouth! *This sauce is very much approved by The Adam Carolla Show, by the way. I made chicken kabobs with the Caribbean Heat and the guys LOVED it! Watch the clip here.

Have I piqued your interest yet? Then let’s do it!
