Win big with a Healthy Tailgate Party!

Tailgating is ttailgate with beef photohe quintessential fall activity! Whether you are grilling in your backyard or the stadium parking lot, tailgating brings a big crowd with big appetites. You don’t have to spend all day cooking for your hungry guest – let Hy-Vee be your resource for delicious “semi-homemade” tailgate treats!

HealthMarket

    • Hy-Vee Hummus and FSTG multigrain chips. Make a wholesome snack!
    • Hy-Vee Salsa and HealthMarket Blue chips
    • Hy-Vee Sweet potato chips
    • Xochil corn chips with Desert Pepper Bean Dips Or Amy’s Black Bean Salsa with Corn
  • Hy-Vee plain yogurt for dips, add to ready-made dips
  • Black beans (no salt added) for salsa, tacos, burritos and eggs.
  • Hy-Vee Meat Counter
    • Pre-made BEEF kabobs (think school colors!)
    • Buy pre-cooked smoked pulled chicken and spend time preparing your secret sauce!
    • Hormel pre-seasoned pork loins are fantastic – ready on the grill in just 45 minutes – they are moist and tender! Try serving it sliced or on a ciabatta roll.
    • Whether you grill Alfresco or Aidell’s chicken sausages, you can spend your time with the many delicious toppings (sauerkraut, grilled onions and peppers, hot mustard sauce). Yum!
  • Salad Bar
    • Make your favorite dip with fat-free/light sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, but let the Hy-Vee Salad bar cut up all those veggies and fruits for you!
  • Produce
    • Give your veggie tray some pizzazz by using vegetables for “dishes” – cabbages, tomatoes and peppers cored all make fantastic bowls for dips.
    • Fruit and vegetable kabobs can be served raw or grilled with your own special sauce or dip. Again, think School Colors (Nebraska – strawberries, raspberries, apples, pears, alternated with small pieces of pound cake)
    • Avocados as a dip or a sandwich spread.
