On this "Panthers Fan Friday" the FOX8 News team is celebrating early with a tailgating party.

They will share their favorite tailgating recipes, just in time for you to use on Sunday for the big game.

Here are the FOX8 News Team's recipes:

Julie Grant's “Sweet & Salty Snack Mix”

In a large container, combine the following:

1 bag salted pretzels
1 bag salted peanuts
1 box of corn Chex cereal
1 bag of peanut butter chocolate flavored Chex mix
1 bag of peanut M&M’s
1 bag of regular M&M’s

Shake the container and mix the ingredients.
Feel free to substitute mixed nuts, dried fruit, or any other chocolate candies you like to eat. The idea is to have equivalent amounts of sweet and salty snacks.

Bob Buckley’s Bean Dip

2 cans black beans
1 or 2 avacados diced (I use 2 because I LIKE avacados)
Juice of 1 lime
1 container of HT pico de gallo (onion/peppers/tomatoes/etc, not the salsa)
1 can sweet shoepeg white corn
Handful of fresh cilantro (chopped)
2 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all together serve with Tostitos Scoops
