best tailgate dishes

We challenge yourself to step away from your "go-to" party app and try something new. We recommend these two dishes because they are both easy to make and delicious. 

Dish 1

Mini Country Ham Biscuits


Bisquick biscuit mix (tip: substitute milk for buttermilk) 

Country ham

Honey Dijon Mustard



Make your biscuits according to the package

Roll your dough out about 1 inch thick 

Cut with a circle cookie cutter that is approx. the size of a half dollar

Put on a baking sheet & bake for 15 minutes on 375 or until golden

Get those fluffy biscuits out of the oven and put butter on the top

*Store them in a ziplock bag until you're Game Day ready*

When you're ready to serve, cut the biscuits in half and add a small dollop of Honey Dijon Mustard and a small slice of country ham, enjoy!


Dish 2

7 Layers of Heaven 


2 cans of refried beans

1 package of 1/2 the fat cream cheese

1 packet of taco seasoning (3 tablespoons needed)

1 1/2 cups of sour cream

2 cups of guacamole - home made or store bought work!

2 cups of your favorite chunky salsa

1 cup shredded cheese

1 can of sliced olives (or jalapeños, depending on preference)

1/4 cup of chopped cilantro for taste

1 bunch of green onions sliced thin

1/2 lime to squeeze

Sprinkle of salt & pepper=


Layer #1 is one can of refried beans spread across the bottom of the pan you've selected (usually a 9x13 works great) 

Next, in a microwaveable bowl, add the block of cream cheese and stir in the second can of refried beans - microwave until cream cheese is soft & mix in a tablespoon of taco seasoning. Stir and microwave for about 20 seconds so everything is smooth and creamy

Spread this bean mixture on top of your base layer for layer #2!

Next, add a thin layer of sour cream over the refried beans mixture for layer #3

Spread guacamole over sour cream for layer #4

Add salsa over guacamole for layer #5 (pro tip: strain your salsa to remove excess liquid so you don't have dripping throughout the layers)

Mix tomatoes, onions, and cilantro finely chopped into a bowl and mix together. Spread this combination over your guacamole for layer #6

Add cheese and olives on top for your final layer - squeeze half a lime & sprinkle a light dusting of taco seasoning and cilantro over top. Enjoy!
