With the Super Bowl LIII upon us this Sunday, it’s time to start planning your menu for those that are still planning to watch the game. (It’s still a sore subject for us Bears fans. Hey, Parkey, are you listening?)
You don’t have to be Martha Stewart or a Pinterest-project genius to slave away in the kitchen. With a little creative flair and some store-bought items, these delicious bites will have the pickiest eaters yelling “more please!” in addition to a “touchdown” for parents.

What’s better than filling a tortilla with your favorite fixings? Loading up Doritos or Frito chips. Do you know what’s even more fun than that? Scooping toppings right into the bag—delicious and easy cleanup! Make a taco bar with all the fixings (taco meat, lettuce, cheese, olives, guac, etc) and a basket of single-serving chip bags with the tops cut open, then it’s taco time.

They’ll love the concept and won’t even know they’re being tricked!
