Football season is in full swing and the playoffs are just around the corner! Tailgating and mid-game snacks are a must at viewing parties, but it’s all too easy to grab handful after handful of greasy potato and tortilla chips (not too mention the high-calorie dips they often come with—onion, nacho cheese, etc.).

Luckily, we stumbled upon a new, more vitamin-packed option that will still cure your chip cravings. Food Should Taste Good’s kettle cooked sweet potato chips are 100 percent all natural and are gluten-free, so you can bust them out at a party and still accommodate people’s dietary restrictions. Bonus: One serving—15 original flavored chips at 150 calories—provides 175 percent of your daily value of vitamin A and three grams of fiber!

Besides original, three other varieties are available:

  • Salt & Pepper Sweet Potato
  • Barbeque Sweet Potato
  • Salt & Vinegar Sweet Potato

Since there’s no better combination than chips and (guilt-free) dip, so we asked Food Should Taste Good’s Chef Ryan for an easy, light and flavorful dip recipe. Here’s his recommended pairing for the original flavored chip:

Fig & Goat Cheese Puree

Yield: 6 cups
Serves 12 to 15

  • 10 ounces, dried Calimyrna figs
  • 22 ounces goat cheese
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • ½ cup honey
  1. Cut stems off figs and place in food processor, process until well chopped.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth, occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl. Serve chilled.

Now tell us: What’s your favorite game day snack?
