Fall means many things, but to sports fans, it means football! Football season is here and we’re all busy putting together tailgate and game viewing parties. Saturdays and Sundays from now until January we have an excuse to overindulge in some of the richest foods out there. To help you plan your football party menu, we put together a few of our favorite snacks. Here are 5 dips to get your football party started.
Something Spicy If your guests like a little bit of spice, try jalapeño corn dip. This one comes from Holly’s Cheat Day and it’s packed with all sorts of cheesy goodness broken up by bits of spicy jalapeño and kernels of sweet corn. It’s the perfect antidote for a chilly fall day out in a stadium parking lot.
Bacon Bites Who can turn down warm bacon dip? Wait, let’s rephrase that: who can turn down gooey, cheesy, warm bacon dip? Not many and that’s why we had to include Kitchen Meets Girl’s formula for yummy. There are only five ingredients and the directions are as simple as mixing them all together and throwing it all in the oven. It doesn’t get more delicious and easy than that!
Beer is More Than a Beverage Beer is a must-have for any football party, but after you try this hot beer cheese dip from Cook the Story it will become standard at your tailgate party as well. It’s a little more complicated than the other dips, but it pays for your efforts in smiles and yummy noises.
Taste of Tacos If you want all the flavor of tacos without having to put in the effort of making them, make them in the form of dip! That’s what Memories by the Mile did. Basically, the only things you have to do are buy the ingredients, brown some meat and throw everything in the slow cooker and let it go! It gives you a chance to enjoy the game while your guests enjoy your food.
Refined Red Pepper If you have guests with a more refined palate, here’s a recipe that’s a little more sophisticated but easy to make. Host the Toast whipped this one up with feta, a little cream cheese to cut the salt, and added roasted red pepper for sweetness, with chipotle for a bit of a kick. Serve it with anything from vegetables to pita chips — it’s a versatile dip that just about everyone loves.
