Score a touchdown at your next party with this healthy alternative to nachos

Step up your game day food with this delicious appetizer 

Game day food is important and the cornerstone of any tailgate or at-home watch party. It can either help you celebrate a glorious win, help you cope with a crushing loss from your home team or be the talk of commercial time (”Where’d you get this recipe, Martica?”). It can range from deep fried breaded wings that will have you chanting your favorite teams' war cry to something as simple as chips and dip.
