90+  of the Best Tailgate Recipes

What is your favorite tailgate food?

  • For some people, it’s all about the dips. Whether hot or cold, cheesy and indulgent or fresh and healthy, all you want to do is break out the chips and veggies and dip to your heart’s content while watching the game.
  • If you want to keep your hands free to grab the remote, cheer, or hold on to your favorite beverage, finger foods are the way to go. No fumbling with plate, bowls, forks, and spoons.
  • Maybe football season means chili season to you. Make a hearty beef chili, a tasty chicken chili, or even a veggies chili then set out your favorite toppings so everyone can serve themselves during the game.
  • Don’t be chicken! Tailgating food often means wings and legs, and maybe even a chicken tender or two. Go classic with buffalo or barbecue, or change it up with new flavors. You can even forego the meat altogether and make cauliflower “wings”.
  • Another way to eat your favorite meat is to snack on sandwiches, sliders, hot dogs, or anything else you can pick up with your hands.
  • Of course we can’t forget nachos and loaded fries. Chips or fried piled with your favorite toppings makes for the ultimate game day snacking experience.

  1. Spinach Parm White Bean Dip sounds amazing and can’t wait to try. Huge Sunday Funday football ball, Go Bears & Go KitchenAid. Having that gorgeous orange mixer would definitely make Sunday snack making not only easier but a lot more fun as well. Thanks for all the great recipes.
