Who can even watch football without nachos? It might as well be a sin. These nachos pack in the flavor with both ground beef and steak. While many people love chicken nachos we didn’t want to stray away from the traditional beef nachos. Extra cheese of course. Use a cast iron skillet so you can easily make this and serve to guests! Find our recipe for this at the bottom of the page!

Buffalo chicken is pretty much a football staple. Buffalo chicken dip is one of my favorite, well, um, meals. That is because I will eat the entire thing in one sitting without letting Phillip have a bite. Bad, I know. But to ensure we share we started making these buffalo chicken bombs and WOW they were a hit. The buttery taste you get from the biscuit makes all the difference. Try is out for yourselves with the recipe at the bottom of the page. These are sure bomb at your party (in a good way!).

Potatoes, can I say more? They are so versatile, and let’s be real, AMAZING. I don’t really have any objections of how they are made, I will eat them. We make loaded potato skins for any game, sometimes we will make our loaded baked zucchini skins instead to get a healthy twist on the dish. Either way you make this, load ’em up! The more bacon and cheese the better! The recipe below might call for a certain amount but PLEASE add more!
