Tasty Treats for the Big Game

Have you ever noticed that everyone always refers to this weekend’s championship sporting event as The Big Game rather than just saying the Superbowl?  I guess it’s a legal thing – am I even allowed to type “The Superbowl” here without the NFL’s permission?? – but I digress.

For this weekend’s ‘big game’ we’re going bowling at the awesome, tater-tot-filled North Bowl in Philadelphia right before the game and then we’ll head over to Matt’s sister’s house for pizza, beer and commercial football watching.  Even though I won’t be doing any cooking of my own, I still wanted to share a few recipes that I know would be delicious to snack on during the Superbowl.  Enjoy!

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

BBQ Chicken Quesadillas – A delightful combination of shredded chicken, cilantro and barbecue sauce, all held together with plenty of melted Monterey Jack cheese!

Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeño Poppers – A baked, spicy treat filled with low fat cream cheese and part skim mozzarella (they’re practically healthy!)

Tomatillo Salsa

Tomatillo Salsa This bright green dip is packed with roasted tomatillos, cilantro, garlic, onion and jalapeños.  Make the day before and serve cold!

Caprese Skewers

Bite-Sized Caprese Skewers – Tomato, basil and mozzarella on a stick!  Perfect for healthier eaters.

    • Thanks! I’m kind of sad that I’m not going to get to make them for sunday’s game but that means that I’ll just have to find another excuse for them which shouldn’t be too hard. 😉

    • Yes, they were really good. We actually haven’t made them for a few months but Matt saw my post last night and declared that we should definitely make them again very soon. They are delicious!
