If you have been hanging out with me for a while, you know we are HUGE football fans. High school, college, pro… we love it all. In fact this time of year, much of our week is scheduled around games.

Getting ready for game day takes some planning. Whether it’s a low key Thursday night game at home with just my guys or an all-day Saturday football-palooza with tons of friends, there’s gotta be snacks! So coming up with a menu is a necessity to ensure that game day starts off right!

I like to have a mix of hot and cold snacks as well as light and hearty options to make sure that there is something for everyone. So when I’m making my shopping list for the week, Grillo’s Pickles are always on the list. They are perfect added to a charcuterie board or cheese tray right from the container. They pair perfectly with meats, cheeses, fruit and more. But, did you know that they are a great addition to lots of tasty recipes too?!

Take my Air Fryer Cubano Taquitos for example. These tasty snacks give you the great taste of a Cuban sandwich in an easy to eat snack that’s perfect for any game day gathering. And the best part, they are crazy simple to make.

A little ham, cheese and pork are rolled up in a corn tortilla with a Grillo’s Pickle nestled in the middle. Then you just cook them in your air fryer to crisp them up and melt the cheese. The result is a tasty little hand held snack that will be the hit of your game day spread!

Serve with some mustard sauce, salsa or whatever you love for great taste without a ton of effort! Plus, you can save some moolah on your next purchase:
