Fall football eats

As we charge into football season, here are a few easy things I throw together for a buffet on game day:

Bruschetta (a good way to use the basil and tomatoes in your garden)
5-7 tomatoes diced
2 C loose leave Basil
2-3 green onions diced
2-3 garlic cloves roughly chopped
1/4 C olive oil
1 t Kosher salt

place basil in a food processor and chop for 30 seconds. add the rest of the ingredients and chop for an additional 30 seconds. serve on toasted french bread

shredded chicken

place 3-4 frozen chicken breasts in a crockpot for 3-4 hours. once cooked, shred with a fork. serve with a variety of sauces and deli rounds

2-3 ripe avocados
2 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno pepper
1 t kosher salt
juice from 1/2 a lime
1/8 cup diced tomatoes (optional)

chop and blend until desired consistency is reached. serve with tortilla chips

Cheer for your favorite team! Here we cheer for the Vikings, Gophers, and Ducks!
