Monday: Sheet-pan Chilaquiles

Think of this minimal-mess dish as an Insta-worthy take on nachos. Trade neon nacho cheese sauce for crumbly cotija, then finish the dish off with sliced avocado, splashes of hot sauce and runny eggs.

Tuesday: 15-minute Skillet Pepper Steak

Add some onions to the pan for an Asian-inspired spin on cheesesteak filling. Pile it into hoagie rolls and broil them with cheese on top or serve over rice.

Wednesday: Crispy Cauliflower Tacos

These vegetarian handhelds star one football staple everyone can get behind: spicy, creamy homemade queso.

Thursday: Potato-chip ‘fried’ Chicken

Because you definitely have a few bags of chips on deck reserved for your famous French onion dip. Here, they serve as the breading for seven-ingredient, beyond-crispy drumsticks.

Friday: Loaded Baked Potato And Cauliflower Soup

Potato skins (aka baked potatoes covered in cheese, bacon, sour cream and chives) are a game day essential. This one-hour soup scratches the same itch as the app, but only calls for 15 minutes of prep.

Saturday: Everything Chicken Wings

Once you prepare the homemade spice mix (which works wonders on bagels, lox, vegetables and more), you’re a third of the way there. Start with premixed everything bagel seasoning to save time.

Sunday: 15-minute Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Everything’s better bite-size, no? These impossibly simple sammies are only 15 minutes away, thanks to store-bought shredded rotisserie chicken.
