Snappy crisp or chewy soft, the pretzel holds a special place in our stack of snacks. Maybe it’s the irresistible aroma wafting from a ballpark concession stand. The fun, playful shape. The salty, savory bounce on our tastebuds. Or all of the above!
While beer is always a good pour with pretzels, we suggest sipping a crisp, light white wine because it complements the salty goodness. Just ask your Spec’s expert to help you find the pretzel perfect un-oaked Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
And here’s a prize-winning pretzel concoction, direct from the State Fair of Texas—
Pretzel-Crusted Pollo Queso!
Combine spicy shredded chicken with a rich blend of cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, bacon, cilantro and Sriracha sauce. Form into balls, roll them in crusty, crispy pretzel breading, deep fry to golden perfection and serve with a jalapeño ranch dipping sauce. Now that’s pretzel power!
