Football Sunday is a tradition in our house. We love the game and anything you can wrap up to eat. That’s why we whipped up these spicy little Football Sunday Black Bean Salsa Wraps. Being gluten-free it’s hard to find bread at the local store, and I’m not always able to bake it myself. This is one of my all-time favorite football Sunday snacks – my Black Bean Salsa Wraps. They’re quick and easy, we’re using lettuce to wrap them up; put them on the table and get your game on!
It’s finger food at it’s best. Everyone gets to make their own and have some fun while doing so. I always cut up some extra hot peppers to place on the side for those that love the kick of some hot spice (I’m all about the heat). The grandchildren love to load theirs up with cheese and some fresh bacon – everything’s better with bacon! These Football Sunday Black Bean Salsa Wraps give up plenty of time to enjoy the game, and not miss a play.
Football Sundays around here are spent in front of the game. These Football Sunday Black Bean Salsa Wraps keep us fueled all through the game; quick and easy so you won't miss a single play.
