Celebrate Game Day With Old El Paso and Publix + #Giveaway #GameDayFavorites #10Tips

 I don't know about you guys, but here in The South, Football is king. We celebrate game day like nobody's business. We get the kids involved and everything. I've always been a football fan, but everyone has a special place in their hearts for football. Whether you're cheering rec, middle school, JV, high school, college, or pro (then, there is even Adult local leagues)- a football game becomes a time to celebrate. Me personally, I'm a pro ball girl, but to each his/ her own.

Since I was a kid and mom had a Superbowl party every year (just for dad and I to enjoy), I have loved game day parties. My absolute #GameDayFavorite is setting up a taco bar. Just add some football cookies and you have all you need. Tacos are an American favorite for an American game. They are easy to eat, filling, and fun! I'll share with you some tips or setting up your next Taco Bar to make your #OEPGameDay the best it can be. It gets even better- grab this coupon.

10 Tips For A Successful Game Day Taco Bar

1. Start with an Old El Paso Taco Dinner Kit- everything you need is included (except meat and fresh toppings). You can even get them with both hard and soft taco shells. They will make your game day party more successful and you can always pick up the extra things you want. You'll probably want to pick up extra shells depending on the number of guests you are expecting. Grab the coupon.

2. Don't forget your favorite toppings by Old El Paso, like green chiles, beans, condiments, cheeses, sauces, and more. Be sure to grab the coupon

3. Pick up fresh toppings like cheese, lettuce, tomato, avocados, and sour cream. Guacamole Game Day Recipes will give you even more ideas- grab this coupon to help. Tip: Use canned tomatoes- you don't have to cut them, they are easier to serve, and they taste great! 

4. Pick up a football themed dessert, to keep the festivities alive!

5. Get festive and decorate- you can use football themed serving trays, party plates, and jerseys up, and even use pennants and jerseys as table decor. 

6. Gather a couple more TVs in the common room for checking other games. While you're at it, set up a small one or a laptop in the kitchen so everyone can stay caught up on the game and never miss a play. 

7. Remember to keep dietary restrictions in mind. You may want to ask your guests if they have any. We always have a vegetarian option, as well as sugar-free desserts. However- anytime we have an event, we ask ahead of time for special dietary restrictions. I always have sugar-free stuff with me for the kids, but it sure is nice when people think of it. 

8. Gather activities for the kids that may come. Not all kids are interested in football and may not stay calm. Keep your guests from missing plays by having fun for the kids too. You can get coloring books, board games, crafts, and even movies with a portable DVD player and headphones- most of which, you probably have on hand.  

9. Keep wet wipes, stain remover pens, and other quick clean up items on hand in case of spills. (Don't forget the Lysol during cold and flu season)

10. Relax and enjoy- you saved money, bellies are full, and eyes are on the game. Don't stress- enjoy the game.
