Football season means snack season. For vegetarians who love the game, it's sometimes hard to find dishes that aren't grilled meat, a burger, or sprinkled with bacon bits. Meat-free party goers are in luck though, because there are plenty of delicious recipe choices. Bite-size veggie burger sliders, gooey cheese dip, hearty chili, and creamy potato salad bites are just a few of the indulgent (yet surprisingly light) foods they get to look forward to in the fall.
Two-Cheese Veggie Nachos
Being vegetarian doesn't mean you have to miss out on tailgating snacks. With a bit of creativity (and a few Cooking Light recipes in your repertoire) it's quite easy to make a football party menu that serves veggie and meat eaters alike.
We love the double-cheese contrast in this nacho recipe: Shredded cheese melts into a bubbly blanket over the tortillas, while crumbly queso fresco covers the veggies with a salty kick. It's an impressive dish for coffee table dining—it's fun to keep it all on the baking pan and serve as a shared platter.
