The Big Game is just around the corner so I'm dragging out some of our favorite Super Bowl recipes and carting them over to my son's house for a par-tay!
I'm on my own for the Big Game, my husband is traveling for business this week. Do they show the Super Bowl in the U.K?
Anyway, my son took pity on me and invited me over to party with his friends. Hey, wait a minute... could it be he wants me to cater the party? Naw... couldn't be. Could it?
I plan on making some tried and true recipes that will feed the crowd and still allow me to enjoy the big game. We've got everything from Green Chile Burgers and Chicken Wings to Home-made Southwest Spiced Chips and Retro Dips. So, pick your favorites and have your own party.
A large bowl of Shrimp Ceviche makes a great dip. You can make it a few hours ahead of time and keep it in the fridge until kick-off.
Southwest Black Bean Hummus is another "Do Ahead" dip.
Just prepare these Roasted Jalapeno Poppers early and pop them in the oven for a warm snack anytime during the game.
These Fajita Style Vegetarian Nachos take a little more preparation but that can be done the day before the game. Just heat the ingredients and pile up the nachos!
This Retro Style Warm Bacon Dip can be made early and kept warm for in a chaffing dish for the whole game.
Southwest Spiced Chips make the perfect side for Green Chile Burgers or Tucson Style Chicken Wings.
Talk about "man" food! These Spicy Tucson Style Chicken Wings are a favorite. I usually fry up the wings and cook the Green Chile Burgers at half time. The second half of the game is is sort of "dinner time."
I'm watching my carbs (what else is new?). So, I'll be eating Southwest Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Anything that can go in a bun, can go in a lettuce wrap. Even the filling for these Southwest Chicken Spring Rolls. You don't have to make a separate filling to keep your weight watchers happy.
Southwest Chicken Spring Rolls are perfect for the Super BowlI make the filling for the Southwest Chicken Spring Rolls a day in advance and wrap then in the spring roll wrappers the day of the game so they don't get soggy. They are ready to fry anytime the game gets slow.These are some of the dishes I'm cooking up for my son's party. You can make them all, or choose your favorites, they will fit in at any Game Day Party!I make the filling for Southwest Chicken Spring rolls a day in advance and wrap them in the spring roll wrappers the day of the game so they don't get soggy.
