Simple ideas for a Basketball Playoff Party and a spicy queso dip recipe that your guests will love.

I loved these basketball party ideas. Water bottle sweatbands, DIY game day cupcake toppers, and a spicy queso dip are just a few of the things we used at our basketball playoff party!I told you we were a little basketball crazy right now. Last weekend we had friends over to watch another round of games in the playoffs. Our home team was playing and we were ready to party! Melinda and I went all out creating a cute party spread and we saved ourselves a little time with Delimex Taquitos and Tacos that we paired with a spicy queso dip and a Mexican black bean salad. It was a basketball fiesta!

Oh well, at least the food was good! Melinda and I wanted to have time to enjoy the game(s) with friends so instead of spending a lot of time in the kitchen we picked up Delimex Chicken and Cheese Taquitos and Beef and Cheddar Rolled Tacos at Walmart and made a few fresh sides to go with them.

While they baked Melinda made a spicy queso dip with white American cheese, green chilies, and jalapenos (so spicy, but sooo good!) and I made a Mexican bean salad with corn, fresh salsa, and lime juice. It took up less than 20 minutes!

Of course no party we host is complete unless we go a little overboard on the decor. Any chance to get crafty and we take it, lol. We dressed the water bottles up with some team colored sweatbands, and…

I had way too many but it was delicious. A few of our friends still had a chance with their bracket picks (not me, booo!) at the end of the day, so even though we won’t be cheering our home team on we’ll still be watching the playoffs to see who takes home the trophy this year!
