Easy Gameday: Baked tortilla chips and guacamole

FOOTBALL SEASON IS HERE!!

Sorry for getting a little excited there.  As I write this, Clemson is beating last year’s Champs Auburn 35-24 and I WISH I was in Death Valley right now.

But, I’m not. I’m in Jersey City.  Had a little scare this morning, searched for the Clemson game on TV and couldn’t find it.  Not on ESPN, not on Fox Sports, not on BTN.  I was in the middle of chastising New York television and telling my husband we need to move to South Carolina asap… when I found it… on ABC!!  Glory be.

Anyways, a snack was then in order since we won’t be leaving the house until the last second on the play clock.
