Even if you’re not a football fan, NFL Sunday can be a great chance to hang out with your friends, drink some beers and enjoy great food. For those of us that like to go beyond the normal wings and pizza that usually go with watching football, here are some recipes that will be sure to keep things interesting. These recipes are very easy to make and are relatively cheap as well.
Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
1 package shredded chicken
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce
1 cup Ranch Dressing
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Mix all ingredients together in a baking pan. Make sure all ingredients are mixed well - especially the cream cheese. Put in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Have some extra time and feel like slow-cooking your dip? Put in a crock pot for four hours. Serve with tortilla chips.
Four-Layer Chili Dip 
8 oz cream cheese
1 can Hormel Chili
1 jar chunky salsa
16 oz shredded cheddar cheese
Spread the cream cheese on the bottom of a small baking pan. Spread the chili on top, followed by salsa and top it off with the cheese. Cover with tin foil and place in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling. Have a lot of guests? Double the ingredients and place in a larger dish. Serve with tortilla chips.
Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers
18 fresh jalapeños, halved
8 oz cream cheese
1 package bacon, cut in half
Fill each halved jalapeño with cream cheese, wrap in a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and arrange poppers. Place in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees and bake for 15 minutes, or until bacon is crispy.
Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 bottle Frank’s Red Hot Wing Sauce
1 oz dry ranch salad dressing mix
2 tablespoons butter
6 rolls
Place chicken breasts in a crock pot or slow cooker with salad dressing mix 3/4 of the hot sauce. Let cook for 6 hours on low. Make sure chicken is cooked thoroughly, add butter and shred chicken using two forks. Serve on rolls with remaining hot sauce.
