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
- Cut stems off figs and place in food processor, process until well chopped.
- 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?
