Chrissy Teigen's Go-To Ingredient Is Perfect For the Lazy Cook
Chrissy Teigen teamed up with Lawry's to come up with some incredible tailgating tips and recipes so you can throw together a delicious feast even at the last minute. Here's what she had to say about the partnership: "My favorite part of any game day is the food — hands down — and having a well-stocked pantry is my secret when cooking for a crowd of sports fans. There are like 10 things that, if I have on hand, I can take over the world — or at least a tailgate. Sriracha, cilantro, and Lawry's Seasoned Salt are some of my favorites."
Having grown up on Lawry's seasoned salts, from the garlic salt on scrambled eggs to lemon pepper on baked chicken breasts and steamed artichokes to the seasoned pepper in a cheese ball, I can attest to its finger-licking goodness. The convenience and flavor makes it all too easy to pick up and shake on just about anything, and Chrissy's ingenious uses of the seasonings will inspire you to get cookin' come football season! Seriously, you'll adore how doable these recipes are.
The quickest application is a little bit of Lawry's Seasoned Salt on buttered popcorn.
John's Fried Chicken With Spicy Honey Butter
Another recipe from Cravings, this chili has only a handful of ingredients and gets the bulk of its flavor from Lawry's Seasoned salt, chili powder, and red pepper. In the cookbook, Chrissy and John serve this inside mini bags of Frito's for the perfect tailgating "bowl."

Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges
"Toss sweet potato wedges in Seasoned Salt before baking and again right before you go to town on them for a double dose of spice. You won't regret it," Chrissy advises.
