Fight night's at my house!

Hey everyone,

We're having three couples over to watch the fight on Saturday night and I'm looking for recipes. Unfortunately, the group that's coming isn't too adventurous when it comes to food; but at the same time, I'm known for laying out a nice spread. Help me chowhounders, help!

        I think that people like this kind of food..."Finger Food"...also consider the very easy to make but beloved 7 layer dip!

          It's also Cinco de Mayo and Derby day, so you could throw in a few shouts out to Mexico and/or Kentucky....

            What about a carolina style pulled pork:


            You can make home made cole slaw, home made buns/or corn bread and it wouldn't be adventurous but a nice spread. You can make the pulled pork in advance and keep it warm in a crockpot.

              I just remembered this. I've been wanting to try it out--mac and cheese w/ buffalo chicken:


              Basic ingredients in a different way.
