Tailgate Three Meat Chili

Welcome to our #TailgateParty! 

We have delicious recipes from across the country to make your next tailgating party the best and most delicious party ever!

 My family really enjoys tailgating, we have been doing it since 1980!  We have a long tradition of supporting my Missouri Tigers!  M-I-Z!  Over the years we have collected some tried and true recipes and this Three Meat Chili is one of them.

It started out as regular chili!  There were occasions where we didn't have time to shop or didn't have the right ingredients and that's when we improvised. We had kielbasa chili, sausage chili, and meatless chili. One time we just had a little of each and that was our favorite from that time forward!

We also love our Buffalo Chicken Chili that we made for my daughter's birthday tailgate.  She was born in October, in the middle of tailgating season and she often asked for a tailgate birthday party!
Another favorite is Bacon Wrapped Dill Pickles.  Sooo good and widely requested!

Some of the bloggers made recipes that require you to check the temperature of the meat. For those bloggers, they all received a Thermoworks ThermoPop thermometer! You can win one by entering the giveaway below. They come in many colors and you might be able to coordinate your favorite team's colors with your meat thermometer!
