More Scrumptious Snacks for Football Season

Adam Lis, Columnist

It’s football season and that means tailgating time! We all know everyone loves beer and food when watching football, however pizza and wings can get tiresome after a while. So here’s a list of some of my favorite foods to make when I have guests over to watch the game.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
1 pound chicken breast
1 small bottle hot sauce
1 package cream cheese (softened)
1 small ranch dressing bottle
1 bag of shredded cheese (your choice of cheese)

Boil chicken until cooked thoroughly (30 to 45 minutes). Let it cool, then shred.
In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken, 3/4 bottle of hot sauce, 3/4 bottle of ranch dressing. Then, spread cream cheese evenly in 8 x 8 baking dish. Pour the chicken mixture over the cream cheese. Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

1 large tomato
1 pack of real bacon bits or 1/2 pound of cooked bacon cut into pieces
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of mayonnaise

Cut the tomato into small pieces. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, and bacon in a bowl. Set overnight or for at least 4 hours.

Little Smokies
2 packages of Hillshire Farms mini sausages
1 bottle of Heinz chili sauce
1 12-16 ounce jar of grape jelly

Mix the chili sauce and grape jelly in a crock pot. Stir in mini sausages. Cook on high heat for several hours until sausages begin to darken. Taste test sausage after 4 hours (careful, they’ll be hot). Turn off or lower heat when cooked to your liking.
