Mexican Food Ideas for Your Football Party

Football season is right around the corner.  For many, this means Sunday gatherings with friends and family.  However, watching the big game with your loved ones comes with requirements.  One of these requirements is food and a lot of it.  From appetizers to meals, Mexican food provides the best selection of choices for your guests.  Here are a few ideas to make game day a success.


Nacho Bar

Although we love nacho bars anytime, they’re perfect for gatherings.  By providing your guests with an array of choices, you can be sure there’s a little something for everyone.  Start with your favorite shredded meat and choice of a bean.  Provides sides of shredded cheese, jalapeños, olives, pico de gallo, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and whatever else you desire! Lastly, a big bowl of tortilla chips and voila, you have a nacho bar.  The perfect appetizer!


Taco Bar

Similar to the nacho bar, taco bars are a quick and easy meal when hosting a crowd.  Be sure to provide a selection for the main ingredient; seasoned chicken, beef, and seafood fillings will typically satisfy everyone.  Again, a variety of sides for people to choose their toppings make creating your taco a fun experience.  Finish the taco bar with both soft and hard tacos to ensure everyone is happy!


Dos Equis Fish Tacos

If you feel like getting a bit more creative and preparing a meal for your guests, we love Dos Equis fish tacos.  Inspired by one of the top Mexican beers, Dos Equis provides a unique flavor to your white fish that will have your guests coming back for seconds.  Pair your infused fish with pico de gallo and chipotle ranch sauce, and you have yourself the perfect taco.  Here’s an easy at-home recipe for the sauce, perfect for both tacos and nachos!



  • 1 ½ cups of ranch dressing
  • 2 cups of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

Blend together in a blender and refrigerate for up to a week. Yes, it’s that easy.  However, feel free to add spices to taste.  With the addition of paprika, hot sauce, jalapeño peppers, or lime, you can create your own unique twist on this classic.
