Delicious snacks that include salsa offer an easy-to-make option that keeps fans cheering the entire game. According to the Game Day Eats Report from Fresh Cravings, 22% of guests would insist on running out to pick up salsa if it wasn’t available for the feast; 18% would even be devastated and consider leaving.
Consider these Stuffed Peppers from chef Anthony Serrano, a simple snack he makes for his family on game day for a crowd-pleasing solution that scores high fives from the opening play to the final whistle.
Made with the bold flavors of Fresh Cravings Salsa and its combination of vine-ripened tomatoes, crisp vegetables, zesty peppers and spices, it’s a vibrant way to add some authentic homemade taste to the table.
