A different twist, these jalapeno peppers are stuffed and wrapped in spicy sausage. If you really like it hot, add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the cheese mixture. Dip in blue cheese dressing for an added bonus!
Delicious and easy to make spicy cheese balls that will "wow" your friends and get you invited back to any party!
Baking keeps these breaded poppers healthy (well, as healthy as a cheese-stuffed jalapeno popper can be), but no less spicy!
Here's another version of the always-popular "jalapeño popper". Bake 'em in the oven if there's 5 feet of snow outside or if your grill space is limited. You can cut the recipe in half or even quarters without degrading the quality, too! Check the intensity of your jalapeños before you make 'em and add a diced up chipotle or two (or 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper) to the stuffing if they are too mild.
Crunchy, creamy and spicy, this is the killer appetizer for your football gathering. Hope you like bacon!
You read that right--stupendous seven-layer dip served hot. Score. And you make it on the grill. Double score.
This is a sweet and hot variation of traditional buffalo sauce. It can be used as a dipping sauce or to coat your wings.
This creamy, spicy, slightly sweet nacho cheese sauce uses something I've never seen in a nacho cheese sauce/dip: cream of asparagus soup. It adds to the creaminess and some of the very slight sweetness. If you don't eat meat, this dip is great by itself.
A tasty snack anytime, and it's simple to make, too.
These hearty, dude-pleasing nachos are bursting with flavor. The combination of the crunchy tortilla chips with the spicy buffalo chicken and the cool blue cheese dressing make the perfect accompaniment to a frosty cold beverage (or two!) and are great any time of day. The recipe serves 4 but sharing is optional!
This cheesy chicken dip brings heat in a big way. Can you handle the spice?
No stove necessary for this spicy crab dip. Just mix these ingredients together and zap 'em. Pow--game food served.
A hearty dip that will warm you up at the tailgate party or huddled around the man cave.
This dip is as much of an improvement over store-bought bean dip as Peyton Manning is over Jim Sorgi.
All the taste of nachos without all the hard work! Just kidding, this dip is pretty easy though, and is a great way to bring nacho flavor to a party!
Canned chicken breast is used in this tasty dip, but grilled chicken breast strips or leftover roast chicken works just as well.
Food Network host and chef Tyler Florence created this recipe for the Hass Avocado Board. This goes with his Hass Avocado Grapefruit Salsa. Read our interview with Tyler Florence for more cooking tips.
Adapted from an idea from the mad cooks of the Gastonia (NC) Grizzlies baseball team. If you can, get out to Gastonia's Sims Park and try their version. It comes with a challenge: If you can eat the nachos in ten minutes, they'll pay for 'em and put your pic on a Wall of Fame.
Serve at a party, for munching on during the football game, or, if you really overdid it the night before, as breakfast.
Another delicious, spicy snack for any time. Great for football Sunday.
