Hot dogs, pizza and wings will always be the kings of game day grub, but our favorite dish at any football party has got to be the dips. 

They’re so quick and easy to make, plus we can’t get enough of the creamy-crunchy combination that only a chip smothered in cheesy, spicy spreads can achieve. 

Whether you're tailgating out in the stadium parking lot, or watching the game from the comfort of your own couch, these three dip recipes will keep you and your pigskin-loving pals going strong.

Greek yogurt, cream cheese, pepper jack, and Gouda combine with corn and crab to create the ultimate game day dip.

This appetizer packs quite a bit of heat, thanks to the addition of garlic, chipotle peppers, and green chiles. Your guests will definitely be impressed when this rich dish emerges from the oven looking golden brown and bubbly.

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Dip - CLICK HERE FOR RECIPE

Most buffalo chicken dips are loaded with mayo and cream cheese, so we set out to create a recipe that was diet-friendly.

We skipped all the fattening ingredients, opting instead for a hearty puree of white beans, Greek yogurt, and garlic. Toss in some shredded chicken, hot sauce, and blue cheese, and you've got a winning combination. It tastes so good that no one will even notice it's a lightened-up version of the classic belly-busting buffalo dip.

This is another recipe that tastes decadent, but is actually pretty good for you. High-fiber black beans are pureed with goat cheese, cumin, cilantro, and chipotle peppers to create a zesty, spicy appetizer that everyone will love.

This smooth and dreamy dip also works well as a flavorful spread for wraps and sandwiches. Who needs mayo when you have this stuff?

The best thing about this recipe: it only takes 5 minutes to make!
