Recipes: Serve Up Something Savvy for Superbowl

Whether you’re watching the Superbowl or the Puppy Bowl on February 6th, make sure you impress your friends by serving them something a little different. If you’re like me, you celebrate the Superbowl as an excuse to eat food, lots of it. In fact, the only reason I know who’s playing this Sunday is because I linked the NFL site for the sake of this post. So whether you’re partying for the game or partying for the food, we all know and love the typical Superbowl Sunday fare. But this year consider spicing it up a bit! Your friends who are only pretending to be interested in the game (me) will secretly appreciate your creative food for giving them something else to do!

Shake up your traditional nachos and wings with these fun recipes assembled by Huffington Post. Try recipes like “Chocolate Beer Truffles” (ingenious superbowl combo), “Hummamole” (yes. the two best dips -hummus & guac – combined), “Tequila Mango Salsa” (my favorite alcohol and my favorite fruit, I’ll be making a double batch), “Roasted Tomato and Goat Cheese Jalapenos Peppers”, and “Fig Glazed Burgers with Red Onion Jam.” Are you drooling yet? Cause I am.

Wondering about dessert? Isn’t it obvious. CUPCAKES. The SuperBowl Cupcake – Chocolate cake, maple cream cheese frosting, and bacon streusal! OH YES. You’re guests will never leave. Recipes for all of the above are printed after the jump.

Tastee Sips: Margaritas

Courtesy of Chow.com

You probably won’t see me posting many cocktail recipes, and if you do, the alcohol content will be heavily disguised by other fancy, fruity ingredients. I prefer to eat my calories. That said, I’m a sucker for margaritas. Love, love, love them. I usually just blend tequila with a simple pre-made margarita mix, but that laziness is about to change! I’m thinking I need to try each of these margarita recipes. Starting with the  Red-Chile Guava Margarita and Mango Margarita, I’ll let you know the winner!

Red-Chile Guava Margarita

INGREDIENTS
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine tequila, Triple Sec, guava nectar, orange juice, and lime juice in a pitcher and reserve in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. To serve, rim a rocks glass with salt by rubbing a lime wedge around the outside and then dipping the glass in salt. Fill the glass with ice, add the margarita mixture, and garnish with a skewered chile pepper (if using).
