One Frito-Lay Tailgating kit including better-for-you Frito–Lay products, a gift card for purchasing recipe ingredients and a stylish dish to serve your delicious recipes. About Frito-Lay:
“We know few people go to tailgate parties for the veggie – 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.”
Because I have recently started losing weight, I have been dreading football season. New Orleans natives are die-hard Saints fans and with our loyalty comes our FOOD! Tailgating parties usually include chicken wings, hamburgers, hot dogs, donuts, and jambalaya. While quite tasty, none of these options are particularly diet friendly. So, when Frito-Lay challenged me to come up with a “better-for-you” tailgating recipe, I was all over it! After calling Jennifer for a recipe to start from (y’all know I don’t cook!), we decided that making a chili cheese dip would be awesome!
I started by packing down some fat-free cream cheese at the bottom of a dish. In a bowl, I mixed one can of turkey chili with one can of Frito-Lay’s jalapeno cheddar cheese and poured the mixture on top of the cream cheese. I topped with shredded cheddar and baked for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. The dip was served with Fritos in my really cool football dish! Very easy and much lower in calories that the traditional chili-cheese dip.
