Help! I've got more people coming over tonight to watch the game than I had planned. We are doing tacos, but what's a good way to stretch our meal? I'm looking for easy sides, dips, snacks, anything! Thanks for the help!

Kernels of sweet corn are blackened in a skillet with a little beer, cumin and cayenne pepper, then sprinkled with Mexican cotija cheese and cilantro for a blast of flavor.

Sounds like fun...a few easy sides will fill up that plate! Use frozen for this.

If you don't have the dressing ingredients use a ranch, maybe mix with a few tablespoons of BBQ sauce. Would be delish.
