Game Day. It means different things to different fans. It’s the art of tailgating in your living room. It’s sitting on the edge of your seat because your Fantasy League record is at stake or just to be closer to the snacks in front of you. No judgment! In fact, at Cacique, we’re all about helping you create the winning line-up of Game Day snacks & spreads to satisfy every fan (yes, that means vegetarian and keto-friendly recipes, too!).
When it comes to food & sports, we stick to a simple game plan: Make delicious recipes that are low-maintenance, full of flavor & designed to be shareable. Our MVP of the Game Day spread is the Cacique Gameday Snacking Board. The key players are Cacique cheese, queso dips, and salsas. A heartier recipe that’s easy to prep and needs no attention for 3 hours is our Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken. Tender, flavorful chicken to serve a household of hungry fans with minimal effort from the host? Score!

And now for the Game Day scouting report: Cheese Edition. When it comes to our roster of authentic Mexican cheeses, each player has their strengths in different recipes. First up: Panela cheese. This cheese is robust, with a salty flavor. It sears beautifully and will not melt. A true MVP in both our Panela on a Stick recipe and our Fried Panela Tacos with Hatch Chile Salsa.

Next on the roster: Oaxaca cheese. This is your go-to melting cheese. It’s light, smooth and fresh (think: mozzarella, but a little more buttery). Oaxaca cheese holds the team together in our Skillet Nachos and for that, we’re big fans! Honorable mention for Game Day is our Queso Fresco because it literally tastes good on everything.
Yes, Game Day may mean many things. For us, it’s a chance to create authentic recipes (and some with a twist) to share with the ones we love— while cheering for the teams we love! Check out our Game Day recipes and tag @caciqueinc to share your snack spread & team pride.
