With our beloved Patriots going to battle in the Super Bowl this weekend, the supermarket was filled with every kind of junk food you could dream up (and a few that tested the limits of imagination). No I will not be buying pretend cheese food glop to slather over my pizza flavored chips. I love football and I love snacks but I want to nibble on something delicious while I cheer on the home team.
I tasted some Food Should Taste Good chips at Whole Foods and they were great. I brought home a bag of their Sweet Potato chips which had much less salt and fat than my usual choice of chip and I had a plan. When I got home I grated some sharp Cabot cheddar and opened a jar of Evil Apple (my spicy apple & chipotle conserve). I sprinkled the chips with cheese and melted it in the oven. I spread the Evil Apple over the cheese and with very little effort had a great game day snack that was healthy, local and full of flavor. Go Pats!
