Texas Pete

We eat really well at our house.
Dave is a good experimental cook and makes us lots of yummy food and I bake and make us oober fat.
My favorite dish from him is the Texas Pete salad.
His family lives off of Texas Pete but I had never really had it, or heard of it till his mom made buffalo chicken pizza, which I now crave, pretty much every single day.

For the pizza, I use Krusteaz wheat dough bread mix. You can use the white, but I think the wheat is a lot better to work with and I never get those dumb bubbles that you can get on pizza's when baking. You just pour a good amount of the Texas Pete buffalo sauce. I think it's spicy but I like a good amount on the pizza. It's totally up to you. I smother it in mozzarella, because I like it extra cheesy. Dave's mom does a mix of cheeses when she makes it. I also add some bacon bits, if you want it extra spicy; Dave's family add's green chilies. I bake it at 375 for about 10-15 minutes. Also, we enjoy it dipped in some cilantro ranch dressing.

Dave took a twist on this yummy pizza, trying to be a little healthier he made a salad with our favorite Texas Pete. Just an easy salad, lettuce, cilantro, tomatoes, with corn, beans, sour cream, and guacamole, and of course, the cilantro ranch, and he just grills the chicken with the Texas Pete and that is a for sure fave too! And not so carby!

Texas Pete can be hard to find! Smiths almost always has it, but I don't think Walmart ever does so keep that in mind if you plan to make your own Texas Pete dish.
