Tailgating time is here!

Let the cool weather and family and friend gatherings start! I love this time of year and I love getting together with everyone over some really tasty food and FOOTBALL! Nothing compares to the fun that the whole family has during these times. We have some of our favorites that we make every time but since it’s been months since our last tailgate party my memory was a little foggy so I put together some tailgating essentials and I’m sharing my absolutely must have dip that I make every single time.

Here is a round-up of my tailgating must-haves:

Cheesy Chili with BACON Dip!

This is my absolutely-favorite-must-have tailgating dip. It’s so simple to make too… 

Just add 16 oz. of Velveeta {cubed}, 1 can of Hormel Chili and 1/4 cup of crumbled bacon to your slow cooker on low. The longer it cooks the better! The bacon makes it extra awesome! Everything you need for this recipe and all your tailgating essentials can be found at Sam’s Club! Click here for even more ideas.
