Bringing Home A Taste Of TexFest With HEB’s State Fair® Corn Dogs And Three Fun Dipping Sauces

I may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post. This helps me support my blog and my family at no extra cost to you.

I'm not a native of Texas but since moving here, I've fully embraced the spicy, bold, and flavorful foods that make up this state's culture! In particular, my family has embraced anything deep fried and barbecued. Bold flavors make up the bulk of our meals and I'm always looking for some solid ways to bring that taste into my home. Right now, my crew is particularly enamored with State Fair® Corn Dogs. They love how the brand is tasty and made in Texas (a huge part of my husband's heritage) and I love that they are a good source of protein. Plus, they are so easy to make – just 20 minutes in the oven and dinner is served. Recently, I had our neighbors over to watch the Spurs play and needed to feed everyone. So I busted out some State Fair Corn Dogs, mixed up these three fun dipping sauces, and let everyone go to town. They're delicious enough to stand alone or pair them with some coleslaw and potato salad for a true #TexFest gathering.
