There’s no “I” in team, but there is in tailgate. Before you can ready, set, hike — you’ve got to kick off your Super Bowl party on a full stomach with these tailgate recipes by four Nashville restaurants.

Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery’s Hot Pimento Cheese Dip

  • 1 lb. shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz. diced roasted green chiles
  • 10 roasted garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. cayenne
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 12 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tsp. granulated onion
  • 1 cup of roasted jalapeno, diced
  • 8 oz. diced white American cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp. chopped rosemary
  • 1 cup green onion

Step one: Add softened cream cheese, sour cream, white cheddar, and American cheese into a mixer with a paddle attachment.

Step two: On low speed, add chiles, cayenne, garlic, granulated onion, jalapeno, rosemary, and green onion.

Step three: Mix all ingredients until everything is incorporated, then season with salt and pepper.

Step four: Place in a cast iron skillet and warm in your oven at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

Eight wings coated in a white sauce sit in a serving tray on top of a newspaper-like paper with celery and carrot stick garnishes and a small bowl of ranch in the center.
