It's football season again, and if you're like me (the only person in my group of friends who pops for the NFL Sunday Ticket), you'll be hosting a lot of parties this year. Football law states you must have at least two tasty dip options for your guests, but there's no reason it has to be the same stuff every week.

Besides, there's bound to be some poor foodie there who doesn't know a touchback from a touchdown and who needs something they can talk about intelligently.
