We love sharing football party ideas!

And you can’t have a football party without party food. In fact, there’s no way you can watch a game without snacks. Tried it. Doesn’t work. Whether you are having a football-themed birthday party, a game day gathering, Superbowl party blowout or just want some snacks for tv time, these dip recipes are excellent options to add to the menu. Included in this list of recipes from some of my favorite bloggers are a chunky, fresh guacamole, red garlic hummus, buffalo chicken dip, chile con queso dip, several cheese dips and a roasted red pepper spread – just to name a few. Is your mouth watering yet?!
