Chicken Jalapeno Bites

Chicken Jalapeno Bites

It’s Football Food Friday, yet again! I feel like Fridays come up so quickly during football season (not that I’m complaining one bit). I mean, how is it almost week 7 of the NFL season?? It’s completely insane. Now, I don’t usually talk about my weekend before it actually starts, but I am extra excited for this weekend because I’ll be celebrating my birthday on Sunday! TJ and I both took Monday off, and we’ll be doing some fun celebrations over the next few days – can’t wait to share it all on Monday.

Now onto these chicken jalapeno bites. These little guys are bite-size, just the right amount of spicy, and absolutely perfect for popping into your mouth during any (college, NFL, high school?) football game. An equal opportunity football snack, if you will.
