Super Bowl Food Recipes
Loaded Tater Tot Appetizer Recipe
Roasted Jalapeno Poppers
Wear gloves when handling the peppers or avoid contact with your eyes and mouth after handling them.
- 12 large jalapeno peppers
- 6 ounces cream cheese room temperature
- 6 ounces shredded smoked pepper Jack cheese or extra-sharp Cheddar
- 2 tablespoons of chopped green onion
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut 1/3 of each pepper off lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Place on a baking sheet. If peppers do not sit flat on the baking sheet, slice a thin piece off the bottom of the pepper so it will not roll around.
Mash the cream cheese, shredded cheese, and onion together and stuff the peppers with the mixture. Roast for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and the cheese is brown at the edges and bubbly.
Sweet & Sour Meatball Appetizers
This recipe is really flexible because you can either make BBQ, Teriyaki, or Sweet & Sour Meatballs by simply changing the sauce you use. I have put these in the slow cooker to keep them warm for serving.
- 36 Frozen Meatballs (I prefer the Kirkland ones from Costco)
- 1 bottle Sweet & Sour Sauce
Prepare meatballs as instructed on the bag. Warm up sauce in the microwave for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, and pour over the meatballs before serving.
Shredded Beef Street Tacos
I like using this recipe as part of a taco bar. Once I’ve placed the roast into the crockpot, I prepare the toppings, placing them in small bowls or a divided serving platter and put in them in the fridge until we are ready to eat.
- 36 tortillas, street taco sized
- 3-4 lb beef roast (almost any will work)
- 1 1/2 cups beef broth
- 1/2 tsp ground red pepper
- 1 small onion, sliced or diced (I use frozen, diced onions)
- 1 Tbsp Montreal Steak Seasoning (my go-to seasoning)
- 1 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 cup red onion, diced
- 1 cup shredded or crumbled cheese, any type
- 2 limes cut into 1/6ths
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups lettuce, shredded or ribboned
- sour cream
If time permits, season roast with Montreal Steak Seasoning liberally for at least one hour before placing into slow cooker.
Place roast beef into the insert of your slow cooker, add beef broth, onions, ground red pepper and Montreal Steak Seasoning. Cook roast in slow cooker for 4 hours on High setting or 6-8 hours on Low.
After cooking, remove roast from slow cooker and rest it on a platter. Separate it two forks. Return to the slow cooker if not serving right away, keeping it on warm setting.
Prepare toppings and place into individual bowls or a divided serving platter.
Wrap tortillas with damp paper towels and microwave in 30 second intervals until warmed and softened.
Have a great time watching the big game!
