Simple and Delicious Guacamole Salsa, Just in Time for Game Day (Low Carb)

Hello and welcome to the weekend! Is anyone else happy to have football back? I can tell you, we are! Mostly because it makes our son so happy! He absolutely lives for football season, and even though he has a developmental disability, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of the week’s football schedule. Every week I ask him what he wants for “game food” and his face lights up.

Most weeks, we have these crispy parmesan wings along with some other snacks. This guacamole salsa is one of our old standbys, but it’s so good we never get tired of it. My husband has developed this recipe over the years, and he’s definitely known for his guacamole. The other day our college-aged kid was away while we were having our game snacks, and she texted me, saying “don’t eat all the guacamole.”

Other times, I’ve invited our adult kids to stop by, saying “we have guacamole.” It gets them every time. ๐Ÿ™‚ This recipe is mostly like a guacamole, but it has more of a spiciness and also contains tomatoes. It won’t look as green as traditional guacamole when it’s done because of the spices, but it will taste delicious.

Crispy Low-Carb Parmesan Wings Recipe, Just In Time for Weekend Sports

These wings are so, so good. I mean really crazy good. Crunchy, crispy, seasoned parmesan wings are our go-to recipe for football season dining. We watch sports mainly at home because of our sonโ€™s mobility issues (although he has occasionally made it to a stadium and had a fabulous time) but that does not stop us from feasting on all-out tailgate food when our favorite sports are on TV. 

Try this tasty recipe the next time you have a craving for wings. You will not be disappointed in this change of pace from the usual spicy buffalo wings.


4 pounds of fresh chicken wings

1 6 ounce jar of 4C Homestyle Parmesan Grated Cheese

2 T dried parsley

2 T  dried oregano 

3 t paprika, hot paprika if you want a little kick

1 t garlic powder

1 ยฝ t salt

1 t black pepper

ยฝ cup melted butter


Preheat the oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with foil.

Cut the fresh wings in half into drums and flats. Place in a pot of salted water for 15 minutes and then dry on paper towels. 

In a small bowl, mix together the cheese and spices. Blend thoroughly. 

Dip each wing into melted butter, cheese mix, and then place on the baking sheet in a single layer. 

Bake for one hour or until browned and crispy and the chicken is done through.
