Looking for the perfect game day snack? This roasted sweet potato salsa goes great with chips and it has the right amount of spice from Serrano peppers
Don’t be surprised if this roasted sweet potato salsa gets consumed even before the coin toss is done.
That is what happened to me last weekend. I put these salsa and chips in front of hungry football fans and they ate it in matter of minutes.
Sweet and spicy is the perfect flavor combination for any game day recipe. The flavors are in tune with the emotions of the game. It has sweet moments of victory and spicy moments when the players make glaring mistakes.
Over the years, I have found ways to including sweet potato on game day menu snacks. I have served my potato rounds using sweet potato and they have turned out to be a huge hit.
Sweet potatoes are my favorite healthy veggies to serve on any occasion.
