When I think of party food fixings, my first thought is “Dude Food” — it needs to be party friendly because let’s face it, it’s going to be enjoyed parked in front of the television or while standing around on the back porch, which means it should be simple and enjoyed with either your fingers, a toothpick or simply a fork.

My fella’s favorite football food: Buffalo Chicken Wings. The spicier the better, too. So I decided to turn his go-to game day food into a party favorite that can be kept warm in the crockpot for hours so you don’t have to worry about reheating during breaks.
