Buffalo Chicken Chili

(Family Features) When it comes to game time, what's on the menu can be as important as who's on the field. This season, delight your fellow fans with a game time menu that's sure to please everyone - whether you're tailgaiting or hosting a game day get-together. Look to party staples and use these ideas to build up the flavor.

Game Day Menu
Here's a list of items to consider when preparing for your party:

1-Step Buffalo Hummus - Simply combine a tub of classic hummus with one and a half tablespoons of Tabasco Buffalo Style Hot Sauce and serve with fresh veggies, crackers or pita bread.
 
Pizza - Grab some frozen individual-sized cheese pizzas, as well as a variety of toppings - from pepperoni and sausage to black olives and mushrooms - and set up a pizza bar so guests can make their own pizza. Then pop each pizza into the oven for a delicious meal catered to each particular guest.

Devilish Eggs - A take on the traditional deviled egg, add some heat with Tabasco sauce.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip - Served hot or cold, this dip goes great with tortilla chips.

To add even more heat to your traditional game day spread, serve Buffalo Chicken Chili. Combine chicken, fire-roasted tomatoes and pinto beans, with chili powder, cumin and Buffalo style hot sauce, for a legendary addition to your recipe playbook. And for a creamy kick, finish each bowl with a bit of crumbled blue cheese.
