Getting Ready for Game Day

I like to be prepared for Game Day so that I can sit back, relax, watch the game with family, and enjoy some delicious football food!

I also prepare by planning for quick, easy, and delicious appetizers for the Big Game.  This year, I'll be serving up chips, dips, and other easy to put together snacks.

Loaded Chili Cheese Fries

This appetizer is incredibly yummy and cheesy!  By using thin cut fries for this recipe, it gives a nice crunch to your bite.

The beer-battered flavor adds a new element of flavor to a classic appetizer favorite for parties.  Between the beer-battered flavors, the homemade chili, and the delicious cheeses, it is an absolutely delicious appetizer to serve at your next party!

Other Game Day Appetizer Ideas

The options are endless when preparing food for Game Day.  In addition to loaded chili cheese fries, meaty sliders, crockpot meatballs, loaded nachos, and other types of fries such as curly fries, would all be great additions to your Game Day spread!

This is one of the best recipes that Corrie cooks tried and it turned out awesome. The chili when prepared gave out a mouthwatering aroma which increased to an unimaginable extent after baking it combined with fries. The only customization I did was to use peanut butter and feta cheese as additional toppings making the loaded chili cheese fries much richer!
