Score With This Cheesy Skillet Nacho Recipe for Football Season
Football season means tailgating plans are commencing, fantasy football teams are performing (or not, womp) and everyone is glued to their screens every Sunday and Monday. While superstitions and beer are important parts of the season’s rituals, there is one more thing that everyone has on their mind for the day: What are we going to eat during the game? While we’re yelling at the TV, we’re also stuffing our faces with the most delicious food we can get our hands on. Although wings and burgers are staples at any football game party, you also need to bring something new to the table. Give this nacho recipe a try for those times you want to add an extra crunch to your football food parade. They are easy to make and involve a lot of cheese. A lot.
