Superbowl Recipe Roundup

Hi compadres.  If you’re ramping up for Superbowl 2014 like we are in our household, then this recipe list is for you.  Whether you’re having a huge bash with all your rowdy friends or a quiet night on the couch with some munchies (and hopefully a libation or two), you’ll find a great party treat in this roundup.  

Happy Superbowl! 

Superbowl Salsa

This salsa is best made in a huge batch and eaten in heaping spoonfuls on nachos, quesadillas, tacos, or anything else you can get your hands on.  You’ll never buy salsa again.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Popcorn

Not sure I have to say anything about this recipe:  I’ll just let the name do the talking.  If it helps, it’s easy to make, so there should be nothing stopping you from whipping up a batch of this on Sunday.

Turkey Fennel Sausage Nachos with Caramelized Onions and Cherry Chutney

I have a bit of a thing for funky nachos, and these were a great little experiment with salty and savoury flavours combined in one of my favourite football-watching snacks.  These, by the way, are just meant to be eaten between swigs of root beer.

Mango Chicken Curry Wonton Cups

These are a timeless classic in my repertoire of recipes.  Everyone loves them; everyone wants the recipe.  And, as I learned at a party this Christmas that seemed to feature an enormous complement of Purple House Cafe recipes (what an honour!), you can make this recipe even easier by forgetting about the wonton cups and making this as a dip for tortilla chips.

Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is synonymous with football, right?  Thought so.  I make this recipe at least once a month during the winter at our house, and it makes everyone happy.  It’s good eaten straight out of the slow cooker with a fork, piled on a sandwich, or under a fried egg for brunch.

Pulled Pork Nachos with Goat Cheddar and Apple Salsa

Why not take some of that pulled pork you just made and turn it into nachos.  These are deadly-good, and can and should be eaten as breakfast.

Nutella Stuffed Brown Butter Sea Salt Cookies

For the sweet-toothed football fan:  these cookies.  Another one where the title says it all.  You’ll need a full jar of Nutella for this recipe, so make sure you buy two so you can eat the other jar with a spoon while the cookies are baking.

Peanut Butter Fudge

This recipe is too easy not to make.  It’s a microwave recipe and can be whipped up in mere minutes.

Happy Superbowl everyone!
