To Texas, football is a way of life. Along with the many football viewing parties that are planned over the coming weeks and months (like the number of college bowls that feature prominently over the holidays, not to mention the NFL Pro Bowl and Super Bowl), there are a huge number of hungry fans preparing to enjoy a good game and some great food. Never let it be said that football fans don’t know how (or what) to eat! Here are some great tips on what to eat at your next football viewing party:

1. Loaded Nachos

Nachos are no stranger to football feeding frenzies, and Texans make some of the best there is! Loaded nachos allow people at your viewing party to choose finger foods that are filling, handy, and can easily be picked-off (unlike the passes in this match, hopefully…). Nacho chips can be loaded with whichever toppings you wish, allowing guests to remove ingredients they’re not fans of without much hassle or time being spent in the kitchen. A great recipe is available here for those who aren’t already inspired!

2. Pizza – Any Style!

Pizza of any style is definitely a football fan’s go-to for game time snacking. With a number of delivery places ready and able to make the completion….’er, deliver your order, you’ll still need to consider planning ahead. Many other Texas families have football viewing parties in the works, and pizza’s a priority. Getting your delivery hot and ready is key. The alternative, of course, is making one at home! Here are some great pizza recipe options for those who are topping-challenged.

3. Chili

Texas and chili go hand-in-hand, just the same as football and the Lone Star State. There are countless amazing recipes for it, entire chili cook-offs, and if you can’t find one to suit your game-day viewing party, you might be one of the pickiest people out there! Red chili, green chili, and even vegan chili (perish the thought…’er, yummm), are delicious and can be made with your own take on the traditional ingredients. It also goes quite well with a bottle or can of your favorite beer, by the way… which also pairs nicely with football. Here’s a selection of great Texas chili recipes to help you set the table easily and fill your guests to the brim!
