Guacamole & Chips
This Southwestern appetizer is great all year round, but especially on gameday. Easy to make and easy to enjoy, homemade guac will step up your gameday dish game. Be sure to avoid overmixing by using a rubber spatula to combine your ingredients. When finished, hit your guac with a little fresh lemon juice to add a little extra touch to this delish dish. That mild acidity will also keep the avocado from turning brown right away.
This game day favorite is a classic, but with a twist. Aside from just beef, beans, and nacho cheese, add other toppings like tomatoes, onions, queso, and others for a little extra flavor on your standard gameday nachos.
This new gameday snack is sure to be an instant favorite. With a combination of ground beef, panko, and sour cream, you can now achieve the perfect meatball texture with this delicious and hearty treat.
