Even if you’re not a fan of football, you should definitely be a fan of football season.

If you’re a big-time football fan with sworn allegiance to your favorite team (plus a few fantasy lineups on the side), that’s great. Invite your friends over for a watch party with a little booze and a lot of snacks. If you’re totally indifferent to who’s playing and, if you’re being honest, don’t even really understand the rules of the game, that’s also great. Invite your friends over for a watch party with a little booze and a lot of snacks.

What I’m saying is: Football season is for everyone, because the food opportunities are too amazing to pass up. If you’re a chef extraordinaire, you can go all-in on making a full spread of fancy nachos, potato skins, wings, and maybe even some homemade pizza. If you’re more into eating than cooking, though, you’re definitely going to want to stick to a few tried-and-true dip recipes, with an assortment of chips, bread and maybe even some veggies for dipping.
