Football season is officially here!!!

My beloved Oklahoma Sooners took the field for their first game of the season on Saturday and put up an impressive 48 points against Louisiana Tech. In less than a week my San Diego Chargers will take the field against Arizona for their first regular season game.

If you read my blog regularly or follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, you know that I’m a total football fanatic!

I think it’s just something in the air when you’re growing up in Oklahoma. You catch that football fever as a kid and it stays with you for the rest of your life!

I even joined my first all-girls Fantasy Football League this year, with some of my besties, Bradie, Amy, Annie and Kelly.  I’m so excited for the witty football banter to begin between all of these lovely ladies!

Besides the actual game itself, my other favorite part about football season is getting together with a big group of friends to watch the games and dig in to some delicious game day grub!

My first thought when it comes to football food is buffalo style anything!

I also think tacos, burgers, nachos, dips, sandwiches and chili. A couple of weeks ago I began brainstorming new ideas for this seasons game day grub recipes.

I decided to do a twist on my Chipotle Pulled Pork Dip (all I can say about that dip is YUM YUM YUM), with chicken, all wrapped up in a tortilla for this delicious rolled taco recipe.

It’s a little sweet, a little spicy, totally cheesy and so scrumptious!

I sliced the rolled tacos in half so they were easy to serve up as a game day snack!

They can also be left whole and eaten for dinner. Wait, did someone say it’s “Taco Tuesday”?! Aw yeah!
