You don't have to be a football fan to enjoy or at least appreciate all of the great football foods. When it comes to tailgating, the food is the star of the pre-game show. Every year I see more creative, more amazing and more intricate tailgating foods around the stadium. These hot off the grill Chicken and Red Pepper Hummus Flautas are no exception. Everyone will be gathered around the plate asking you for the recipe. It's up to you if you tell them how incredibly simple they are.

Four simple ingredients, including the tortillas is all it takes to whip up these serious game changing snacks. Of course no one will be able to have just one so we'll just call them the main course. I cook the chicken breasts in my pressure cooker so they are done in 5 minutes flat, if frozen tack on another minute or two. Shred up your cooked chicken in 20 seconds using this method I developed years ago. Add in a container of Sabra's Red Pepper Hummus for a bit of creaminess and flavor, mix it up and spoon into flour tortillas. Add some Jack cheese and roll em' up. Bake at 450F for 15-20 minutes and you've got yourself some golden brown, crispy melted cheesy goodness.
Did you know that only 2 spoonfuls of hummus a day will fulfill your bean recommendation for the week? Research shows that diets with increased bean consumption are associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
Sabra's roasted red peppers hummus takes regular hummus in a bold new direction. One bite and you can almost hear the peppers sizzling on the grill. This spread is perfect for outdoor eating adventures like picnics and cookouts.
Sabra hummus is an allergy friendly food since it's vegetarian and gluten-free. Hummus, made from Garbanzo beans helps boost fiber intake, especially when paired with veggies or whole grains. The mix of soluble and insoluble fiber supports heart health, and the combination of protein, complex carbohydrates and fiber aid in weight management and blood glucose control.
