The smell of fall is in the air, which means it’s finally that time again: football season. 

And besides the adrenaline-pumping joy of finally getting to watch your favorite pro and college teams hash it out on the gridiron, football season can mean only one thing: snacks. There’s just about nothing on this planet more satisfying than a room full of your friends cracking open beers and screaming at the television together, with some nearby table covered in sweet, salty, lip smackingly good grub. 

A football party without snacks is like yin without yang — they need each other to be complete. So call up some of your best buddies and celebrate the pigskin with the following three game day honoring recipes.

Sweet and Salty Mix

Nothing takes care of the stress-crunching football munchies like a good sweet and salty mix. You might as well pre-make some recipe cards to hand out at the party, as your guests will be raving to know what makes it so delicious.

Crockpot Chicken Sliders

Sliders go with game days like peanut butter goes with jelly, and this recipe is so easy. The chicken will spend 4-7 hours slow cooking in a crockpot, giving you time to do two things at once.

Magic Bean Dip

You may think you’ve had great bean dip in the past, but if it wasn’t Magic Bean Dip then you’ve never properly snacked. Chips and dip are the Mecca of football snacking, so utilize this recipe as your back pocket ace to wow party guests.
