"I'm going to show you two ways to use rotisserie chicken that are perfect for tailgating or what I like to call couch-gating," says Sunny Anderson of Food Network's "The Kitchen" and "NFL Tailgate Kitchen." These chicken, cheddar and bacon-filled taquitos and this Buffalo-Chicken Guacamole Dip are favorites in her house and are so simple. Serve one or both the next time you settle in for a game—whether in person or on the couch!

Cook the bacon. In a large pan over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon, let cool and then chop.
Make the taquitos. In a large bowl, mix chicken with chopped bacon, cheddar, scallions, green chiles and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. Add ¼ cup of the filling to each tortilla and wrap, tightly, like a cigar.
Fry the taquitos. Fill a shallow frying pan with a about a ¼ inch of canola oil and heat over high heat. Once hot, place the taquitos in the oil, seam-side down, and fry 2 minutes. Turn and fry 2 minutes more. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Serve with queso or salsa and a squeeze of lime on top, if you like, or with dipping sauces of choice.
