a hungry texans super bowl

Super Bowl Hero

Hopefully one day soon we’ll get to root for one of our teams on the grid iron as they vie for victory in the Super Bowl (go Texans! go Redskins!), but until then these Hungry Texans would rather spend our game day munching on Super Bowl snacks on snacks on snacks.

Dipp-ability & cheesiness are award-winning characteristics when it comes to Super Bowl snacks. Whether you’re hosting your own Super Bowl party or looking for a dish to bring to a friend’s look no further than these delicious dips & apps!

Jalapeño Poppers

Red, White & Blue Nachos

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Pineapple Salsa

Ninfa’s Green Sauce/Tomatillo Salsa

Those snacks are perfect munchies for the Big Game, but if you’re looking to round out your menu with something a little heartier, we recommend crab cakes (in honor of the Ravens, “crab cakes & football that’s what Maryland does!“), veggie chili, or some Chicago-style DC half smokes.

Finally, to satiate your Super Bowl sweet tooth, whip up a batch of these One Bowl Brownies! If you’re a 49ers fan, we recommend using Ghirardelli cocoa powder for good luck!

Wishing you all a super Super Bowl!

yay, sports!

Red, White & Blue Nachos

Don’t wait another four years to make these red, white & blue nachos!  While this patriotic platter is a strong candidate for any gastronomical election, it can also make an appearance at a Fourth of July celebration or your next All-American Sunday potluck.

You’ll Need: 

1 bag blue corn tortilla chips

2 cups Monterrey Jack cheese (I used slices because it’s all I could find, but you could use shredded)

1 cup Pico de Gallo (store-bought, or make your own with tomatoes, cilantro, red onion, lime juice & jalapeno)

1 cup sour cream

1 lime

1 jalapeno, diced very small

1 can black beans

1 bunch cilantro

 

This is all about the construction, people.  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and lay aluminum foil over a baking sheet (no mess!).  Spread your blue corn chips over the sheet pan and layer monterrey jack cheese on top.  Then spoon a tablespoon of black beans over each chip.  Yes, I know black beans are not red, white, or blue.  But what they are is delicious and full of protein.  Top with a sprinkle of cilantro and pop these in the oven for 6-8 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling.

While the cheese is warming up, combine your sour cream, juice of half a lime and half of the diced jalapeno.  Start stirring until…bam!  You just made Kicked Up Sour Cream.

Once the nachos are out of the oven, squeeze the other half of the lime over the whole thing.  Then top with your pico de gallo, jalapenos, cilantro & Kicked Up Sour Cream.

peace, love & snacks,

hungry texans
