Our Texans may not be competing in the big game come Sunday, but Super Bowl 50 should still make for one heck of an entertaining afternoon! I’m partial to Peyton Manning, but hey, that’s just me!
Whether you’re planning a party for lots of friends or just a relaxing evening with a few, we’ve got fan favorites that are quick to prepare, terrifically tasty and utensil free!
Kick things off with Glazed Texas Tots: bacon-wrapped tater tots cooked extra crispy in the oven (about 15 minutes) and coated in a sweet and spicy mouthwatering glaze that includes chipotle and ancho chili powders, a recipe that was sent to us by a loyal viewer.
These tots will be the talk of your party! They also make a great companion to our Spiced Black Bean and Cheese Sliders if you’re going meat-free. A serving option is to spread split rolls with fresh guacamole and place a slice of Provolone on each half. Then, top with the warm patty. It’s a healthy option for all to enjoy – particularly those folks who don’t eat red meat.
For those crazed carnivores in your life, behold: Sweet & Spicy BIG RED Baby Back Ribs! This is my own recipe and more than a little tempting. I’ve made these ribs using a classic jar rub, and I’ve also made them with my own spicy creation straight out of my spice drawer. Either way, these come out finger lickin’ good!
My friends at Good Ole Boys in Katy score every time with their Boudain Balls sprinkled lightly with Good Ole Boys’ famous seasoning and served with sauce se bon, tartar sauce or cocktail sauce. For those craving Cajun, the choice is yours. Personally, I think they call for a cold beer to accompany. It’s just that kind of occasion!
Lastly, satisfy just about any sweet tooth with Touchdown Brownies. Gooey, bite-size brownie balls dressed with icing to make a football stitching design. Don’t be surprised if these go first – speaking from experience!
