Football-themed hard boiled eggs make deviled eggs look downright boring!
If you’re stressing about gluten-free game day grub, worry no more! Most snack-type foods are or can easily be made gluten-free (think corn tortilla chips, traditional hummus and salsas, veggie trays, fruit and popcorn), but why not think beyond the ordinary and try some new products, recipes and flavors?
Share these new gluten-free foods with your friends, and you just might win them over to your team!
So get your game face on and pick from this menu of ideas to suit your tastes. I’ve given you recipes, links and some of my favorite new and old gluten-free brands to get you started. Many of these products I discovered at the latest Natural Products Expo, so you may not have tried them yet yourself. But you should!*

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix all ingredients together well in a large zip-top plastic bag, then pour evenly onto lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring every ten minutes to prevent burning.

Heat two tortillas in a small skillet, then place one on the skillet, top with cheese, then beans or other fillings, then more cheese. Top with the other tortilla and warm until cheese melts. Flip with a spatula to cook on both sides. Remove once cheese is completely melted. Cut with a pizza cutter into 4 wedges to serve.
