I wrote recently about my family’s game day parties, and how simplicity is its own virtue. Truth be told, there’s very little that’s simple about either, no matter how my themes are meant to run, or what I have planned. However, this past weekend, I couldn’t help but give into the Dark Side, and decided to go all out for our most recent game day party with friends and family.
Like fans bedecked in outlandish team themed costumes, which invariably bear all of the impassioned imperfections of home assembly, I wanted to put together a game day party to remember. Indeed, I wanted to put on a proper celebration with all of the hallmarks of a dinner party turned feast, and all of the hearty flavors befitting a night devoted to football.
However, there was just one problem, I hadn’t the faintest idea how I was going to do this. Thus it was that I found myself wandering Walmart intent on buying supplies for a party whose menu I had yet to put even a single item on. Then, just as my despair reached its breaking point, and I was on the verge of settling for chips and takeout, my eyes glanced across the Pace Salsa display, and a deep-voiced “Take the Southwest by the Bottle” rang between my ears.
I knew instantly what I was going to do.
I was going to put together a true game day classic, but with a few key twists to help keep things interesting. Yet, as always, it needed to be finger-friendly, a tad spicy, and as hearty as possible.
To start things off, I decided to prepare a tray of Cheesy Salsa Fries using Pace Chunky Salsa for genuine southwest flavor, along with shredded cheddar cheese, salt, pepper, and olive oil. I baked these for about forty minutes to achieve a perfectly balanced crunch.
Needless to say, the game day party, and the menu, were a complete success. What are some of your favorite game day recipes? We would love to hear from you!
Enjoy with Love,
