    My favorite party food has to be chips, pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
    It just screams try me, try me.
    Nachos would be great with all of the this as well….that way everyone can make it the way they like it.
    If you eat your snack food standing up it doesn’t have any calories…right?
