Here’s what you’ll need:
3 tablespoons of soft goat cheese
1 tablespoon of fat-free, plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon of finely diced green onion
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
Sea salt to taste
Terra Sweets & Beets chips (only the red ones, of course)
To prepare, simply mix all of the ingredients together, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

FALCONS RASPBERRY DARK CHOCOLATE CUPS
For this sweet treat, you will need plain Greek yogurt, raspberries and cacao or intense dark chocolate. Dish out the yogurt and garnish with raspberries and crumbled dark chocolate chunks or cacao nibs.
Keep it easy: Garnish a glass of sparkling white wine with a few blackberries.
PATRIOTS SPICY BLACK BEAN DIP
Here’s what you’ll need:
15-ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup of fresh salsa
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, including stems
2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon of cumin
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
1 bag of blue corn tortilla chips
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the black beans and cilantro are nearly blended. Add up to a tablespoon of water to thin the hummus if necessary.
Serve with tortilla chips.

PATRIOTS SRIRACHA TURKEY MEATBALLS
A spicy twist on the classic turkey meatball. Hit the grocery store for:
1 pound of lean ground turkey
3 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄4 cup of onion, finely chopped
1⁄4 cup of parsley, chopped
1⁄2 teaspoon of salt
1⁄2 teaspoon of pepper
1⁄2 teaspoon of oregano
1 egg, beaten
1⁄2 cup of dry breadcrumbs
Mix all the ingredients and shape into 30 meatballs approximately an inch across.
Spray a nonstick pan lightly with veggie oil.
Cook the meatballs for five to six minutes or until cooked through and nicely browned on the outside. You will likely have to repeat the process for a second batch unless you have one big frying pan!
Drizzle sriracha over the top until covered in a Patriots hue of red!

PATRIOTS SALTY & SWEET SKEWERS
Make your tongue dance with all the sweetness and saltiness of blueberries, feta cheese and watermelon happily married on one skewer.
Just like the Falcons Bubbly, except add some raspberries to a glass of sparkling white wine instead.
