We love to head over to friends homes for watching football games. Whenever the University of Utah is playing out of town we like to watch their games being surrounded by all our other friends that are fans. Sometimes it’s just hard to find that perfect side dish to take to the game day parties.

What’s great about nachos is they are super kid friendly. Kids can grab a chunk of chips and just go to town. Everything is all piled up on there for them already. Maybe they won’t be able to handle the spice from the jalapeños, but you can just pull those off and let them enjoy the game with you eating proper football food.
