Honestly, anything drinkable. And preferably Merlot. Go for the 7-10 dollar range.
I like to use a nice Cotes du Rhone or for something cheaper, a Gamay blend. Guity Men by Malivoire is great.
Zinfandel can be good too with its peppery overtones. No matter what you choose to use, make sure it is one you would like to drink on its own.
