Super Bowl combines a few of my favorite things: Football, Food, Family/Friends and Booze!!! Here are some of my favorite little recipes for a great party:
Brookie Brookie Super Yummy Super Bowl Queso
Ground Beef (Or you can use Turkey, chicken, pork or lamb. With Chicken or Turkey, use an extra bay leaf and cumin)
Pepper Jack Cheese
Chopped Green Chiles
Roasted Salsa or Pico De Gallo (I use mild because I’m not a big fan of spicy food)
Chop garlic and onion. In one pot melt your Velveeta, Pepper Jack & Cheddar cheeses. Keep fire on low and stir until all cheese is melted together. Brown ground meat and shake in your salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder & garlic powder seasonings. Add your bay leaf, onions & garlic to the meat. Squeeze in some fresh lime juice. Brown and then drain excess oil. Add meat, salsa & green chillies and stir. Let sit for a little bit before serving so flavors marry. Chop up some green onions and place on top for color. You can add as many or very little chilies to your salsa depending on your taste. You can also use your own preferred taste when it comes to the salsa heat.
Mommy’s Master Wings
Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
Butter (2 sticks… Yes I know! I’m going Paula Dean on you!)
Grapeseed or Vegetable Oil
Heat up your oil in a pot to fry the wings. Salt & Pepper your wings, then fry. No dredging or flour needed. Fry until they’re brown and crispy. In a pot melt a sticks of butter (you may need more depending on how much sauce you like or if you have a bunch of wings. This is for about 24 medium sauced wings.) and then add can of tomato paste. Stir in some salt and Lemon juice. Whisk in a couple teaspoons of marmalade and honey. Add your bottle of Frank’s Buffalo Sauce and half a bottle of Tabasco sauce. Take your fried & drained wings and stir into sauce and serve. I use add wings to a pan, our sauce over and then mix around.
Yummy Roasted Corn
Ears of Fresh White Corn
Olive Oil (I like the organic olive oil Pam so it’s a light spray)
White Crumbly Queso
Lightly cover your corn with olive oil and roast in the oven or grill, turning over occasionally. Mix Mayo, Chili Powder, Lime Juice & Lime zest together. Remove roasted and slather (yes I said, slather) your mayo mixture on the corn. Lastly sprinkle the crumbly queso on top. You will need some corn holders & napkins with this one!
Those are my little homemade favorites. I try to keep as many little snack around as possible. I use White Corn, Blue Corn & Lime Flavored Tortilla chips to add a little color and zing to chip collection. Salsa is usually a roasted salsa. Of course you must have guacamole. My veggie platter consists of baby carrots, baby corn, zucchini strips, red bell pepper, jicama, cucumbers with a spinach dip. My ex was a big popcorn fan so a little variety of flavored popcorn. Baked beans, Macaroni Cheese, Green Salad (all of which I will post recipes for later on). A pitcher of margaritas (two different flavors), a non alcoholic spritzer, Coke, 7-up, an array of beer. And of course you have to add a bottle of Pinot Noir or Shiraz!
