Is your bracket busted yet? Even if you’re out of the office pool — maybe that’s the reason it’s called March Madness — there’s still plenty of good reasons to get together with your college basketball loving friends. We’ve got 8 of ’em right here, including decadent dips, crazy good chili and nachos that are as exciting as a shot going in at the buzzer. Here’s the lineup for a big WIN!
Prepping this meaty version the night before makes Game Day a breeze. One 5-star review raved: “I can’t praise this chili enough! The meat melted in your mouth, the flavors tingled nicely all the way to your toes.” Sounds like a MVP!
This one gets high fives for being so easy to make. In fact, Theresa reported in her glowing review: “I’m a terrible cook and this recipe made me look like an awesome cook. My entire family loved this!!!!”
Just three ingredients, but a whole lot of flavor. Leslie dished up 5 stars in a recent review: “I made this for a party and they were gone within 15 min. after setting them out. This will be a definite on my party menus for now on.”
If you build it, they will come! This classic is so satisfying, especially when you’re cooking for a crowd. Sports fans report that it’s a huge hit at parties: “Absolutely delish!!!! Would make it again!” gushed MJgirlie.
The cream cheese tames the heat from the jalapenos in this impressive preparation that’s earned an average of 4.5 stars from more than 2,700 reviewers. “Everyone who has tried this dip when I’ve made it has loved it! Tastes great warm or cold!” said Queenie605.
A flavorful rendition of the classic lightens things up a little bit with the addition of seasoned chicken. Some cooks plan parties around this fun one: “I must admit to planning social gatherings simply as an excuse to make this. Everyone loves it!” admits Krista.
Wings are great, but this scoop-able variation scores huge cheers for adding gooey cheese to the winning combo. “Excellent dish! I made it for an office party. There were several Buffalo Chicken dips there but my dish was the only empty one at the end of the party!” raves Maria856.
Because, well… you’re going to need something fun to toast your team’s win. Or drown your sorrows at the loss. There are tons of 5-star favoes for this refreshing cocktail: “The Best Margarita by far!!! even if you are not a beer drinker, trust me you will love this,” said JMROSS.
