My husband loves football! He doesn't like to make plans on Sunday so he can reserve his spot on the couch to watch all the football games on TV. Then of course there is the Saturday college football and Monday Night Football games to watch as well. You can pretty much block out the calendar during football season for him. Since football is such a big part of our family life for so many months of the year, the kids and I get into the spirit by making all the game day food that we can enjoy while my husband is hooting and hollering over the game.
I'm always looking for fun game day snack inspirations so I headed on over to http://snackablemoments.net and I found loads of dips, nachos, kid-friendly snacks, stuffed burgers and more.
One thing I definitely know I will be having on our game day menu is some quick and easy dips to put out with lots of chips and crackers. One of their favorite dips is my spicy and creamy Avocado Jalapeno Dip.
My kids really love chips and crackers because they like anything that has a serious crunch. So, I am always on the hunt for chips and crackers when I go to the store. Have you heard that Pringles has a tortilla chip now? As a big Pringles fan, I was so excited to find them amongst all the other great flavors at my local Walmart. I also stocked up on boxes of Cheez-It Grooves and bags of Cheez-It Crunch'd.
My local Walmart made it easy for me to find the Cheez-it crackers and Pringles Chips because they placed them on big pallets at the front of the store and throughout the grocery department. I also found them easily in both the chip aisle and the cracker aisle that were right next to each other at my Walmart.

To make my Creamy Avocado and Jalapeno Dip you can follow my easy step by step instructions with photos:
2 ripe Avocados (medium size)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 a large red onion finely diced onion (you can also use yellow onion)
1-2 seeded and finely diced jalapeno peppers (to your taste)
1 tsp cumin powder
Salt and Black pepper to taste
Lime juice to taste (juice from 1/2 a lime or up to a full lime)
- Remove skin and seed from the avocado. Squeeze a little lime juice to keep the avocado from browning.
- Diced the onion and jalapeno finely. Remember to remove the seeds from the jalapeno to control the spice level.
- Next add the sour cream.
- Then season with cumin powder, salt, black pepper and lime juice to taste.
- Mash all ingredients with a potato masher until creamy.
- Serve immediately with chips and crackers or refrigerate with a layer of plastic wrap pressed against the dip to keep air from browning the avocados.
This entire dip was completely cleaned out of the bowl by my family during the game. They loved eating the dip with the Cheez-it Grooves and the Tortilla Pringles.
I better head back to Walmart to restock my munchies before the Big Game Day that's coming up next week.
