There’s been so much football news lately.  Los Angeles will finally get a professional football team (maybe two or three!), and a new stadium will be built in Inglewood.  Not too far from where I live.  I’m excited and football fever is making its way back into our home.  I foresee many, many tailgating parties and homegating get-togethers.  It’s an exciting time to live in Los Angeles.

Football food has evolved tremendously since the last time I attended a football game.  I have to get with the times and practice my tailgating menu.  Buffalo chicken wings and cheese sticks are so 2001.

Hummus Avocado Cup Salad

Food vessels of all kinds are the trend.  Tortilla cups, potato boats and bread bowls. Easy, portable and if it possible, no silverware and no mess.   Everything is fair game.  Avocado skins are the perfect appetizer vessel because they are the just the right serving size and can easily be held in one hand with a tortilla chip in the other.

That’s why I decided to turn some tasty avocados into some fun football food with Sabra Classic Hummus.  On the game time menu: hummus avocado cups with spicy Greek salad.  These colorful hummus and avocado cups are filled with lots of crunchy veggies for the perfect mix of texture and flavor in an appetizer.
