It’s football season and Texomans take that seriously. Something else that we take just as seriously is our game day food. Whether it’s a high school or college tailgate party or a football-watching party at home, that fully-stocked table is almost as important as the game itself.

Others have begged to be adopted into a family thanks to aunt Jane’s ambrosia or uncle Tom’s pork ribs.
