These recipes I created for the RITZ / Coca-Cola Home Bowl campaign! RITZ Nachos & Coca-Cola Ice Cream Floats for Game Day!

My RITZ Nachos are a creative riff on traditional nachos & Coca-Cola Ice Cream Floats are a classic celebration drink.    RITZ Nachos & Coca-Cola Ice Cream Floats for Game Day!
