Football season is finally here...and everyone knows that game day just isn’t complete without the ultimate tailgating party! Whether it’s with a group of friends huddled outside the stadium or the family gathered around the TV in the den, tasty food and snacks are essential to a "winning" tailgating experience.
Tailgating for most of us conjures images of greasy pizza and saucy wings. With a little vision and planning, you can score big by offering a menu that's just as delicious but a bit better for you.
Fewer penalties, better tailgating...
We know few people go to tailgate parties for the veggies – it’s definitely a time to indulge and enjoy. But it doesn’t have to be a total eating catastrophe. At Frito-Lay, our portion control sizes make it easy to enjoy all your favorite treats – in moderation. And simple "tricks" like offering dips made with reduced-fat sour cream or that offer positive nutrition like salsa or guacamole, cooking with lean turkey meat and fat-free refried beans can cut hundreds of calories off your meals and still taste great for you and your hungry fans.
Better-For-You Tailgate Recipe Contest
I'm looking for a new recipe to use at my Pittsburgh Steelers football parties using Frito-Lay products. It can be Frito-Lay Pie, Dip for Tostitos, etc.
The person who submits the best recipe (judged on taste and better-for-you ingredients) will win the items in the photo above: better-for-you Frito-Lay products, a gift card for purchasing your ingredients and a stylish dish to serve your delicious recipes.
Please leave a comment with your favorite recipe using Frito-Lay products. The giveaway will end on October 18th at midnight and will be emailed and announced here in a new post on October 19th.
Thanks for stopping by, and Good Luck!
