An Easy Dip Made with North Carolina Cackalacky Spice Sauce (A Sweet Potato Base)

Updated: August 2019

It’s not whether your team wins or loses on the football field; it’s all about the tailgate. A great game-day dip will score some points.

Need something quick and easy for your next tailgate? I’ve got just the party dip for you.  It’s so simple that you won’t believe something this natural tastes so good.

A quick and easy dip made with NC Cackalacky  Sauce.

You know I love to promote North Carolina on this blog. My state is the No. 1 producer of sweet potatoes in the U.S.  We’ve got a lot of them around here. One Chapel Hill company has found an excellent use for them.

Cackalacky Spice Sauce uses sweet potatoes as the main ingredient along with peppers, red wine, and other spices. This zesty sauce has all-natural ingredients, no preservatives, and is also gluten-free.  Honestly, it can turn plain sour cream into a zesty dip that wows. For those who may not know, but Cackalacky is slang for Carolina here. The company also has a famous Cheerwine sauce. 

My son went wild over this simple dip.  I served it with blue corn chips and fresh-cut veggies.  Both are good, but the vegetables dazzled with the sauce, so I suggest using it with a veggie tray.  It’s so good that people will be eating their veggies in no time. 

I’d say that is a touchdown!

A perfect game day dipping sauce with a Sweet Potato/Spicy Tang. Great with blue chips or vegetables. Awesome with carrots.
