Three Easy Snacks That Will Add a Little Flavor to Your Football Sunday


Football season is finally underway, and that means Sundays are no longer just the day before the work week starts up again. Sundays are once again a time to get together with friends and fellow football fans and enjoy some good food, drinks and, of course, football. Hosting a little get together to watch the game is great way to end the weekend, and no football party is complete without the proper snacks. If you want to wow your buddies with some delicious and nutritious snacks during the game this weekend, be sure to serve these classic dips with your favorite chips:

Break Out the Salsa

Perhaps one of the most traditional football snacks out there, chips and salsa is always a crowd favorite. Regardless of you or your guests’ spice tolerance, there is a salsa that will do. From classic mild salsa to extra hot salsa, everyone can enjoy this yummy snack. Filled with tomatoes, peppers and onions, salsa also helps you get your share of vegetables for the day. Not only is this one of the most popular snacks to serve at football games, it is also good for you.

Change Things Up with a Little Hummus

Although not typically associated with football, hummus is growing in popularity. This simple dip can be paired with pita, chips, crackers, pretzels and even vegetables, like carrots, peppers and celery. Hummus also comes in a variety of flavors to suit everyone’s tastes, including roasted red pepper hummus dip and roasted garlic hummus dip. Hummus is not only delicious, but also very nutritious. It contains high amounts of both iron and vitamin C, and is a great source of folate and vitamin B6. A single serving of hummus contains only 25 calories, and it has one percent of your daily recommended calcium, potassium and riboflavin.

Don’t Forget the Guacamole!

Last, but certainly not least, is another traditional crowd pleaser: guacamole. This avocado-based dip makes frequent appearances at all sorts of events, and it is a must-have snack at football get togethers. Put guacamole out with a basket of tortilla chips and your guests will be glad they came. As delicious as it is, guacamole is also good for you. It contains a healthy dose of unsaturated fats (the kind that is good for you), vitamin C and vitamin E.

So there you have it — three snacks that need to accompany your football celebration this Sunday. Serve these three delicious and nutritious dips and your place will be the go-to spot for football Sunday.
