Tailgate Menu Number Four: Best Ever!

Our last tailgate was hands down, my favorite tailgate so far. Our game was at 3:30 and we opted to have a late light lunch tailgate and then dinner at halftime. The weather finally cooled off around here, and even though it rained a little bit, we really enjoyed being outside.

The Menu: Part 1
Babyback Ribs
Loaded Baked Potato Dip with Potato Chips
Champagne Toast (always fun!)

The ribs were perfect for a late lunch {good job Mom!}, and the baked potato dip was a great complement. The best part was this whole meal was prepared ahead of time so all we had to do was set it out- no prep at all once we arrived!

Loaded Baked Potato Dip
Warning, this dip is addictive. All of your favorite baked potato toppings in a dip. The recipe suggested using waffle fries (the potato part) to dip, but we made it simple with a few different kinds of potato chips. So good!

The Menu: Part 2
-Chili Bar-
Chili, Grilled Hot Dogs, Tortilla Chips, Shredded Mexican Cheese, Sour Cream

We started out with the idea of a big batch of my Mom's chili and then the rest stemmed from there. 
Did you ever have Chili Chips and Cheese back in the day at Wendys? I remember we used to get it on our way home from church for lunch and it was so good. So we decided to recreate that goodness for those who wanted to snack. While we were at it, we threw in hot dogs to keep the guys nice and full. It was so nice to have the option for so many different meals: a bowl of chili, chili dog, or my favorite, chili chips & cheese!

I love it when tailgate food requires no prep once you arrive. It's so nice when you can just set it out and start munching. Looks like y'all had an awesome tailgate!
