    Hi Nikki! Just wanted to say that I love this round-up so much (even though we're not football fans lol) and thank you for sharing my chorizo fundito recipe! We're planning a housewarming party later in the fall with lots of appetizers and this will be a great resource for ideas. :)

    Oh gosh, Nikki, what an awesome list! I have to confess, I typically only enjoy football for the food served, but hey, who cares? :) If I'll be making it, I'll be eating it! What a great roundup! Your avocado salsa is becoming quite popular around here, I must say.
