Football and Pork Rinds

It’s time to pack your coolers and fire up your grills because it’s Tailgating Season! National Tailgating Day falls on the first Saturday in September … marking a magical day when football fans gather and celebrate the return of one of America’s most classic sports.

Let’s be honest, tailgating has become a national pastime. Tailgating Ideas reports that Americans spend over $12 billion on tailgating annually and that each year, nearly 50 million people venture to stadium parking lots to tailgate. While tailgating began as a way to celebrate football, the real star of any tailgate is the food. Did you know that there are countless ways to spice up your tailgating menu with Southern Recipe Small Batch pork rinds? We’ve got quite a few recipes that will leave every tailgater energized and ready for the game!



Nachos are a tailgating and game day menu staple. While nachos are traditionally made with tortilla chips, pork rinds are a fantastic way to put a crunchy, protein packed twist on this fan favorite. Our Keto'Chos Pork Rind Nachos are a tasty way to elevate this tailgating classic. Our recipe creates an extra cheesy, keto-friendly delight featuring our Pasilla Chili Cheese pork rinds.



Every tailgate spread needs a good dip. While guacamole, salsa, and queso are typical tailgating fare, our Reuben Dip for Pork Rinds takes a classic American sandwich and reinvents it in an exciting new way. Pair this zesty dip with our Hatch Chile pork rinds for a tasty, low carb alternative to tortilla chips.



While only one team can win the game, every fan at your tailgate will leave with a smile once they’ve tried our Chocolate Crispies recipe! Featuring our Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper pork rinds, this is a sweet treat you can make at home ahead of time and bring to your tailgate.
