Are you ready for some Football!!!!

Here in Kansas City, Football and Tailgating is taken very seriously, by many many fans. Sure, our team has only won one out of the last 8 games, and sure we are the last in the league. But Kansas City stands behind the Chiefs, through thick and thin, and if they aren’t going to win a game then at least we can have fun while watching.


Ultimate Tailgating Checklist

The folks over at Frito Lay have worked with their Frito Lay Flavor Kitchen Chef Jody Denton to develop this Ultimate Tailgating Checklist.

There are some things on this list I would never have thought about!

If you are heading out for some tailgating this season, be sure to check out the list and we hope that it will help you with your shopping.

The Ultimate Tailgating Checklist

The best part of tailgating is the food, because what would be a tailgating party without food?

Chef Jody’s delicious tailgating recipes, like Brats with TOSTITOS® Queso Dip and Salsa and RUFFLES® MAX™ Smokehouse BBQ Chicken Quesadillas, are sure to score a touchdown with guests.

Ruffles Max Smokehouse BBQ Chicken Quesadilla


  • 1 – Cooked Rotisserie Chicken
  • 3/4 Cup Any BBQ Sauce
  • 4 – Large Flour Tortillas
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1/2 Lb or 1 Cup – Grated Mild Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Bunch – Green Onions, Sliced
  • 4 Cups – Ruffles Max Smokehouse Style BBQ Flavored Potato Chips


Preheat a gas or charcoal grill at medium heat.

Pull the cooked meat from the chicken and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the BBQ sauce and mix well. Transfer to a small sauce pan and warm the meat and sauce over low heat.

Rub a small amount of butter evenly over one side of each tortilla, buttered side down.

Sprinkle cheese evenly over each tortilla, then top evenly with the warm chicken and sprinkle green onions. Foil side down, transfer to the grill and cook until the cheese melts and the tortilla is light golden brown. Remove from the grill and top one half of the quesadilla evenly with the Ruffles Max Smokehouse Style BBQ Flavored Potato Chips, then folder the other half over and press down firmly, then cut into 4 or 6 even slices and immediately serve hot & crunchy.
