Well in 3 more days we will know if the New England Patriot dynasty will continue or the Rams will win. From tailgate parties to home parties, most Americans will gather to watch the two titans battle it out.

There will be all types of food going around. So for the weekend festival, I wanted to share a heart-healthy recipe. Serve up your “Cowboy Caviar” with oven baked tortilla chips. This dish low in calories and big on nutrition will be a hit.
