This appetizer (or meal-in-itself) is just right for watching the Olympics, Superbowl, March Madness - you name it... Add your choice of toppings (avocados, tomatoes, green pepper, etc...) and it becomes a satisfying meal. Great idea to serve when you have a houseful of sports enthusiasts.
I LOVE watching the Olympics - especially in winter. I don’t feel guilty chilling on the couch this time of year because the yard is still permafrost and all the holiday hoop-la is finished. It’s too early for spring cleaning (at least I think it is...) and everyone can usually stay home for the only legal holiday in February - President’s Day! It can’t get better than this.
We like to snack on random things during the Olympics. For instance - just last night we decided to make pancakes during the moguls. Why? Who knows - it just seemed to be the perfect thing to do.
This is great on your plate as you are cheering from your couch. This was made by Sherrie - who is one of my many terrific cooking friends. She found it on tasteofhome.com. It was absolutely delicious, and I was quite surprised to see that it was rated as “healthy” - but check out the *nutrition info at the bottom of the recipe and judge for yourself. I had no idea it had chicken breast as an ingredient - and with the salsa, tomatoes, & avocados it could almost be a meal.
