                I love football. I find it exciting  to be with others  enjoying  their company
      and  watching...THE BIG GAME !
                Here are a few examples  of some favorite snack  recipes I like.

                                            FIESTA  TURKEY  MINI - TOSTADAS

                                Place 40 Tostitos Scoops on a serving platter.
                               1 pound extra-lean ground turkey
                               Salt and ground black pepper to taste
                               1/4 to 1 cup mild, medium, or hot salsa

                               Heat a large non-stick skillet on medium high heat.
                               When hot, coat with olive oil cooking spray, and add turkey.
                               Season with salt and pepper.
                               Cook meat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, into bite-sized
                               chunks, until no longer pink, 3 to 5 minutes.
                               Stir in salsa .Mix well.  Remove from heat.
                               Put 1 heaping  teaspoon into each scoop and serve.

                               If preferred , any Tortilla chip or Pita chip can be substituted
                               for the Tostitos Scoops. This serves 4......under 210 calories.
