Time to Start Talking Football and Game Day Food

Next week is September which means… it’s time to start talking FOOTBALL. NFL officially kicks off the regular season next Thursday, NCAA has their first game tomorrow and we all know that fans are gearing up for the watch parties galore.

That said, what better way to sit around to watch football than with a salsa trio sitting on the coffee table or bar countertop? Well Freebirds World Burrito, your funky fast casual burrito joint, has an extensive salsa selection + all salsas are made in-house in daily and we have some recipes to share! Below are some Freebirds fan favorite recipes for you to check out. Highlighted are the classic Pico de Gallo, spicy + delicious Creamy Jalapeño and the Fire Roasted Corn Salsa which is awesome when grilling out.

I feel that hosts love a game day salsa trio because it gives your guest more options to choose from. Plus, the combo options are endless.
