Football season is here and fans everywhere are having a blast hosting parties and tailgating in celebration of their favorite football teams.  After all, it’s a fact nobody can deny: American Football is one of the most celebrated sports in the United States.  During this time of year, you’ll start seeing more barbecue grills than you could ever imagine, faces painted in numerous shades, rivalries bringing out jerseys and team spirit in everyone and more!

As a newbie to tailgating, I’m not even sure where to start – well, I know to start with snacks that everyone loves, but where do I go from there?  Thanks to Frito-Lay, I had the opportunity to ask Frito-Lay Kitchen Kings Executive Chef Stephen Kalil and Chef Jody Denton about some of their favorite tailgating tips.  Check out the video below and see what they had to say!

There was some great information offered in that video.  Not to mention the yummy products you’ll find at Frito-Lay anyways!  Now is your chance to win the ultimate tailgating prize pack (value of $75 to $100) from Frito-Lay!

    I had to laugh about making sure your grill is big enough for everything you’re cooking. I got SO busted on that one time when i had a grillout and kept adding on different things including ribs. What a disaster, the food wasn’t ready at the same time. they speak truth.
