Y’all know that we love a good fiesta around here (especially as Cinco de Mayo approaches!) and last week the girls and I got together for an afternoon shindig on my back patio with grapefruit-jalapeno margaritas and my new favorite party menu… a build-your-own nacho bar! Since Garden of Eatin’ invited us to take part in their #ChippedChallenge this spring, we’ve been having a blast transforming some of our favorite guilty pleasures with our favorite better-for-you chips (remember our guilt-free queso?!) For this week’s challenge, we put our own spin on the “make-your-own” craze that’s popped up on the party scene by creating a colorful, delicious, and yes, even healthy, nacho bar setup that allows guests to tailor their creations to their personal tastes and dietary needs. Click through the slides for all the details on throwing your own nacho bar party this summer, and be sure to hop on over to the Garden of Eatin’ Facebook page to play the #ChippedChallenge yourself and win some amazing prizes.
