And just like that it’s Super Bowl Sunday. Except for a few lone, hopelessly football-impaired people, everyone but everyone will be watching the game. Even those who don’t’ really care about football will watch the game. If only for the commercials or the halftime show.
Fan or not, it wouldn’t be a Super Bowl without a happy crowd crammed around a wide screen with a few beers and some fabulous food. (Super Bowl Sunday is second only to Thanksgiving for great food traditions.)
So what’s on your Super Bowl menu? Looking for a little inspiration? Here are a few ideas:
Start with finger food! Always a crowd pleaser, try my Grilled Corn, Black Bean & Avocado Salsa with a few chips. Or step it up a notch with my delicious Flatbread with Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions & Spinach. And don’t forget the chicken wings … I’ve got two great recipes … try one or both … Spicy Tequila Wings and Hoisin Wings.
By half time, maybe before, you’ll be ready for the main event. How about chili or chili or maybe more chili? I’ve got two great chicken chilis. Give my My Favorite Chicken & Black Bean Chili or My Other Favorite Chicken & Black Bean Chili. Had enough chicken? Try my Red Bean Chili with Pork & Butternut Squash.
Eventually, you’ll be ready for something sweet! Finger food is always a good idea. How about a brownie? Try my <a href="https://susannye.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/puttin-on-the-ritz-espresso-brownies/" target="_blank"Espresso Brownies or Peanut Brownies (or both) for a tasty finish to a great game.
Enjoy the game and bon appétit!
What will you be serving on Super Bowl Sunday? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s get a conversation going.
