Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Tacos. Easy, epic football food!I am pretty much your stereotypical guy when it comes to football.  I love watching any and all games.  Bonus points if the game happens to be a bowl game or the playoffs.  And football games require football food.  You know what I mean.  Dips, breadsticks, sliders, garlic knots, loaded tots.  That’s what I mean by football food!  Continue Reading »
