If you’re looking for some easy, crowd-pleasing snacks for the big game this weekend, we’ve got some winning ideas for you.
Brocamole (adapted from Nigella Lawson’s Brocamole recipe in Simply Nigella) is a quick and delicious snack that can be served as a dip with fresh vegetables or with baked whole-grain pita or tortilla chips. (See note below for quick baked chips.) This recipe is a great one to make ahead.
Unlike traditional guacamole, brocamole can be refrigerated overnight without turning brown. For additional yummy game day snack ideas, try these Food For Health favorites:
Servings: 4 to 6
Note: If you want less heat, remove the seeds from the peppers before chopping.
Note: To bake your own chips, cut the pita or tortilla into triangles. If you have kitchen shears, they are a great tool for this! Pocket pita works well, but then you also need to split the pita triangles so they are not double thick.
Arrange triangles in a single layer on a baking sheet and spray or brush (sparingly) with olive oil. Add your favorite spice (basil, oregano, cumin, paprika — or a combination) and bake at 375 for 6 to 10 minutes.
Check frequently after 6 minutes. Chips are done when they are crisp and lightly browned.
Note: Nutrition calculation is for 6 servings and includes 1/4 teaspoons salt.
