  9. Rainy day- Howling winds? If you MUST still brave the weather and tailgate, a big crockpot of Chili is a must-have, don't forget cornbread muffins as well. Some baked apple crisp and hot coffee to wash it all down, and you'll be the King or Queen of the parking lot.

  32. i just read recently that you should never grill with the lid open, it is like coking with the oven open.

  33. I try not to make things that will go bad easily if not stored at the right temperature. Because it can be so difficult to keep things at the safe temp when you're traveling to tailgate. Meat on the grill is usually consumed right away, so no worries there. And I pack wet wipes for any messy food & also sanitizer for everyone to use before grabbing all the finger foods!

    1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
    4 cups shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack
    cheese blend
    1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
    1 cup guacamole
    1 cup salsa
    1 (2.25 ounce) can black olives, chopped
    1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
    1/2 cup chopped green onions
    DIRECTIONS:
    1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef. Set aside to drain and cool to room temperature.
    2. Spread the beans into the bottom of a 9x13 inch serving tray that is about 1 1/2 inches deep. Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded cheese on top of beans. Sprinkle beef on top of cheese. Spread sour cream very slowly on top of beef. Spread guacamole on top of sour cream. Pour salsa over guacamole and spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining shredded cheese. Sprinkle black olives, tomatoes, and green onions on top.
    3. You can serve this dish immediately, or refrigerate it over night and serve cold. I think it tastes better at room temperature.
