It’s a Super Bowl Weekend Special

super-bowl-50It’s the golden anniversary of sport’s biggest spectacular … Super Bowl 50! Whether you’ve invited the entire neighborhood in or need to bring a dish to someone else’s … here are a few delicious ideas.

Start with the almighty apps … As in appetizers, not software for your smart phone. Here’s my take on a couple of traditional football favorites:

Tostadas with Avocado Crema & Black Bean Salsa

Corncakes with Guacamole and Simple Salsa

Spicy Tequila Chicken Wings

Warm Gorgonzola with Caramelized Onions & Walnuts with crostini or artisanal crackers

Moving on to something more substantial. How about baked pasta … perhaps something like …

Poverty Casserole

Decadent Mac & Cheese

Mac & Cheese with Cauliflower & Bacon

Mac & Cheese with Roasted Broccoli & Sun-dried Tomatoes

… or chili …

Chili Con Carne

Red Bean Chili with Pork and Butternut Squash

Chicken Chili

Add something green

Crunchy Slaw with Cilantro, Mint and Peanuts

Jicama Slaw

Spicy Cucumber & Radish Salad

Caesar Salad with Parmesan Croutons

Finish it off with something sweet

Peanut-y Chocolate Chip Cookies

Root ‘n’ Tooty Good ‘n’ Fruity Oatmeal Cookies

Espresso Brownies

Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
