For movie night at home, we're in favor of snacking on the couch. Here are a few of our team's favorites!

Jessica Rudolph, Test Cook: Popcorn Chicken!

Irresistibly crunchy, supremely snackable, and shockingly easy to make! Plus, requires way fewer napkins than buffalo wings.

Norma Tentori, Social Media Coordinator: Adjaruli Khachapuri!

This rip-and-dip centerpiece is everything cheesy bread wishes it could be. Deceptively easy to make, but will always impress!

Alli Berkey, Associate Editor: Buffalo Chicken Dip!

Salty, slightly vinegary, and a punch of heat. I grew up eating something similar but our recipe is far more impressive.

Bryan Roof, Executive Food Editor: Broccoli Dip in a Bread Bowl!

Creamy, garlicky, and pungent with Parmesan—everything I love. Healthy-ish? Maybe, but who cares?

Maggie Edgar, Art Director: Spinach-Artichoke Dip!

Cream cheese, parmesan and gouda? Sold. A no fail favorite for everyone in the room, so good I’ve been known to double it.

Morgan Bolling, Deputy Food Editor: Smoked Chicken Wings!

These wings are smoky, a little spicy, and coated in a buttery, tangy sauce. I'd take them over fried wings (though I wouldn't say no to those, either). Very snackable.

Scott Kathan, Deputy Editor: Ranch Fried Chicken!

Boneless fried thighs perked up with garlic, chives, dill, and cilantro—great on a roll or eaten, ahem, with your hands.

Tucker Shaw, Editor: Pastrami and Swiss Football Sandwiches!

Savory, buttery, meaty, cheesy, surprising, and so good.

Fan Favorite: Easy Ground Beef Chili!

Put out plenty of fixins with this big pot of customizable chili.
