Go Team Go! (And Pass The Dip)

We are entering the holiday season time of the year.  Of course, there are the major holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and New Years Day, but there are also lots of other reasons to have gathering and celebrations. That makes my heart happy because I love to entertain!

Tailgating and football watch parties are a fun and casual way of getting together with your friends, and hopefully, cheering your favorite teams onto victory. Food is an important part of these parties. Ideally, it should be easy to prepare and eat such as dips, chips and finger foods. I always have a crockpot of queso on hand no matter what else I serve, because it’s simple to throw together, and almost everyone likes it. I have tweaked the way I do queso over the years. It used to be just processed cheese and Rotel tomatoes which is mighty good. Now I add one pound of browned Owen’s sausage and a can of cream of mushroom soup to give it a little more depth. Serve with a bowl of tortilla chips, and you are good to go!

You can go onto Pinterest and find dozens of tailgating recipes if you have the time, or you can go to The Savvy Couple site. They have compiled a list of 25 tailgate food ideas from various websites with pictures and where to get the recipes. I can’t wait to try the Bacon Crackers and the Cracked Corn Dip to name just a few yummy ideas. Click here to view their site.

I know you will find something perfect for your football gathering. Please tell us what you served!
