The Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII this weekend. And even if you’re not a football fan, you can’t deny the incredible game-day food that comes from it! Award-winning chef Ted Reader is helping us spice things up this year with some deliciously spicy recipes to create a feast guaranteed to score a touchdown with your hungry crowd.

Smoky Grilled Wings with Hot Sauce, Honey Butter, and Blue Cheese

These dry-smoked wings are hot, sweet, and oh-so-easy to make. The warm sauce and hot wings from the grill will melt some of the blue cheese, making a chipotle blue cheese butter sauce.

Tailgater Super Bowl Steak Chili

This is an easy recipe to make a tasty batch of beefy chilli. You can do it old school in a crock over an open fire or use a crock pot or instant pot. 

Smoked Sausage Stuffed Jumbo Shrimp Wrapped in Chicken and Bacon

Balance out the heat with this sweet and hot recipe.

Chili Cheese Nachos


Layer it up with this recipe! Mix and match with your chips, for these have Super Bowl-worthy nachos. Here’s the formula for the perfect layer: Make a layer of chips over the entire baking sheet's surface. Sprinkle a handful or two of shredded cheese over the chips. Ladle/spoon/scatter the chilli over the surface of the cheesy tortillas. As little or as much as you like. Sprinkle more cheese, and add more chips, cheese, chilli, and cheese. Build it up to two to three layers for the ultimate nacho.
