When it comes time for the big game, I’m all about enjoying family and friends. Of course, I want great food.

Prepare a complete meal with this quinoa salad bowl, that will be the perfect side for your José Olé taquitos!

This is where José Olé Mexican snacks come in handy! They are crowd pleasers that disappear in a flash, and no one knows (or asks) if I made them myself. Loved by kids and adults alike, José Olé Mexican snacks make football entertaining easy.

We especially love the taquitos, which are fabulous alone or with a simple sour cream or yogurt dip. I adore them with this Avocado Cream, which has become a bit of an obsession of mine. Seriously – you must try this!

This creamy avocado dip has a lot of the taste of guacamole in a smooth and delicious dip you can make in your food processor in minutes. It is an excellent way to mix things up as well as make things easier on yourself.
