Did you see the game this past Sunday night? I was on the edge of my seat, with everything I’ve got crossed except for my eyes hoping the Giants would win. Next stop Superbowl! Lots of people like to watch the Superbowl, or any big game, with a group of friends. So of course you need to serve some snacks. I’ve got some snack ideas for you courtesy of Frito-Lay, the folks that make one of my favorite snacks EVER – Fritos Scoops. Fritos Scoops are a perfect snack because they taste good and they’re perfect for dipping. Plus the other biggie in our house – they’re gluten-free! Only three ingredients – corn, oil (healthier oils like corn oil) and salt. Eaten alone or with healthier dips in salsa these are tasty snacks that won’t sabotage your diet like some snacks. Here are some recipes you can serve on game day, courtesy of Fritos.
