The Super Bowl is this Sunday and no matter who you’re rooting for, you’re going to need the appropriate game day fuel. These delicious recipes are tested, easy, and definitely palate pleasers!
Seven Layer Mexican Dip
Even if you think you’ve seen this recipe before, you’ve never had it like this, and it’s the first item to completely disappear from the party table, guaranteed.
16 oz. container sour cream (do not use low fat)
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 packet taco seasoning mix
2 ripe avocados
Juice of ½ lime
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 – 9 oz. cans bean dip (found in the chips aisle of your supermarket), or one 16 oz. can refried beans
1 large tomato seeded and chopped
8 oz. package shredded yellow Cheddar cheese
10-12 large black olives, sliced
3 scallions, finely chopped (green parts only)
1 chopped Jalapeño pepper if you like a “kick” to it! (optional)
Tortilla chips, or “scoop” style tortilla chips
In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, taco seasoning and mayonnaise and mix well. Chill in refrigerator while preparing rest of dip. In a separate bowl, mash ripe avocados with lime juice and garlic salt. Set aside.
Open cans of bean dip and spread in an even layer on the bottom of a glass pie plate or similar style dish (or layer in a trifle dish, as pictured). Next, carefully spread the guacamole in another even layer on top of the bean layer. Spread the sour cream mixture for the top layer, ensuring to spread to the edges. Top with cheese, tomatoes, scallions, and olives. Cover, and chill for 1 hour before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.
Easy Crock Pot Buffalo Wings
Wings just got super easy!
12 -14 chicken wings, fresh or frozen and thawed
1 – 12 oz. bottle Frank’s™ Buffalo Red Hot Wings Sauce (be sure it’s the “Wings Sauce”)
Place wings in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on High for 2.5 hours.
After 2.5 hours, remove juices from crockpot. Pour Buffalo Wings Sauce over the chicken. Cover, and cook for 1 hour more on High heat setting. Serve with carrot and celery sticks, and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping.
Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Kielbasa
This recipe is so simple, you might think we forgot some ingredients because there are only two. But they create magic in your slow cooker (and see how many people don’t believe you when you tell them it’s just two ingredients!) Now, watch them disappear.
3 pounds Kielbasa, cut into 1″ pieces
1 pound box dark brown sugar
Place everything in a slow cooker and stir to combine. Cook on low heat for 5 hours. Can be served directly from the slow cooker (set to warm) on the party food table.
Best Ever Clam Dip
Even guests who say they don’t like clam dip try this and are hooked. Serve with pretzel logs and kettle cooked chips.
2 8 oz. packages full-fat cream cheese, softened
1 6.5 oz. can Snow’s® minced clams, liquid reserved
1 6.5 oz can Snow’s® chopped clams, drained
1 teaspoon Adolph’s® Meat Tenderizer Seasoned With Spices
1 small clove garlic, pressed through a garlic press
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
In a large mixing bowl, using an electric beater (or use a stand mixer fitted with a paddle), combine cream cheese, the minced clams with broth, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and spices, until thoroughly combined and no lumps. When thoroughly mixed, stir in the can of drained chopped clams. Cover and chill at least 3 hours before serving. Serve with chips and pretzel rods.
Bacon-Wrapped Cheese Bombs
This recipe is definitely a game-changer. Once you introduce these bombs to your friends, they’ll demand them every time.
1 tube large flaky style refrigerator biscuits
1 16 oz block of Mozzarella cheese, cut into 1″ cubes
16 slices bacon (1 per bomb)
Vegetable oil for frying
Pull each biscuit in half so you have two round discs (for a total of 16). Place a cheese cube in the center of each half. Fold dough around cheese cube and pinch well to seal. Shape into ball.
Wrap one slice of bacon around each ball, trying to cover all the dough with bacon. Secure with toothpick.
Fry each ball until bacon is brown and crisp, turning frequently. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm, with your choice of dipping sauce (Honey Mustard, Ranch, hot sauce — the sky’s the limit) or plain.
