Not only do I enjoy watching football, but I also enjoy the food that comes along with the festivities of the Super Bowl (and the commercials). And I'd like to share a few of my favorite Super Bowl munchies (only a few of which I'll actually be making for tomorrow).
Looks Like Shit But Tastes Good Dip
1 lb Velveeta cheese, cut into chunks
8 oz shredded cheddar
12 oz salsa
1 lb ground beef, browned
Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Cook on low until melted. Serve with tortilla chips and your favorite taco toppings.
1 box Rice Chex
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups confectioners' sugar
In a saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate. Add peanut butter and mix until smooth. Remove from heat, and add the cereal. Stir until coated.
Pour the powdered sugar into large plastic bag, add coated cereal and shake until well coated.
Bacon-Wrapped Lil Smokies
1 pound bacon, cut into thirds
1 (16 ounce) package Lil Smokies
1 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Wrap each 1/3 strip of bacon around each sausage and secure with a toothpick.
Arrange the sausages on a baking sheet and sprinkle them liberally with brown sugar.
Bake until bacon is crisp and the brown sugar melted, and about 30-45 minutes.
Note: These can also be layered in a crocktop on the low setting until the bacon is done.
Enjoy the game...and the food! GO BEARS! (hehe)
