Ah, football season. The time to bring out the face paint, team cheers, pom poms and, most importantly, delicious tailgating food and drinks! The idea of an on-site tailgate can seem a little overwhelming, but an at-home tailgating party can be simple, delicious and so much better than the actual game. So choose your own adventure: whether you want to cheer for a specific team, showcase the flavors of fall or have an all-out Mexican tailgating fiesta, we've got plenty of recipes to keep your fans full.

For a Fall-Flavored Tailgate

Start your guests off with Pumpkin Quesadillas and beer, to get them ready for fall flavors. Then, really win them over with homemade Baked Veggie Chips and Skinny Spinach Artichoke Dip. Finally, when the weather's still pleasant, fire up the grill for Chicken Wings with Jala-Peach Sauce

To Cheer on the Home Team

Fan of the Miami Dolphins? Rep the green and orange with Buffalo Chicken Sliders. Or maybe you like the Kansas City Chiefs? Show your red and white pride through Pizza Sliders. If you like one of the many teams with blue in their jerseys, try our Sticky Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dip or Sweet & Spicy Double-Blueberry Salsa. If you just want to promote good sportsmanship, you can never go wrong with our Pimiento Cheese Football Sandwiches (pictured above).

Throw a Mexican Tailgate Fiesta!

Happy football season!
