Super Bowl Food and a Giveaway

Super Bowl! Do you host a party? Or maybe get together at a friend’s house? Either way, you will probably need some food. Because, as we all know, it’s not about the Football Game, it’s about the food, right? Well, and the commercials! :)

I was so excited when I received a big box on my front porch from My Blog Spark! Football goodies what could be better? Like I mentioned earlier in the week, living in a house with all men, football is pretty standard around here, especially this weekend.

Football Giveaway.fixed

In my package, was a ceramic football serving platter, a table runner, plates and napkins and 2 cans of Old El Paso Green Chiles. I have never cooked with green chilies before, so I was really excited to give them a try. And let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised.

First, I made Southwestern Dip, when I opened the can, they smelled really strong, so I was a little skeptical, because we don’t like our food super spicy around here. But, after mixing it with the other ingredients, they weren’t spicy at all, in fact, the dip will definately be a standard recipe for parties from now on.

Southwestern Dip
  • 1½ cup Sour Cream
  • ½ cup Mayo or Salad Dressing
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Chili Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Garlic Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Onion Powder (I didn\'t have this, so I added a bit of my Pampered Chef Southwest Seasoning)
  • ¼ teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded (I used Mexican)
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso chopped green chiles, drained
  • Tortilla chips (I made Homemade, directions below)
  1. Mix all ingredients, except cheese, chiles and chips. Stir in cheese and chiles. Cover and refrigerate 2-4 hours to blend flavors. Serve with tortilla chips.
  2. Directions for Tortilla Chips:
  3. I use flour tortillas, cut them into wedges (6) and fry them in a little oil. They bubble up like the Tostadas, and they are quick, easy and really good.

I also made some Enchildas with the other can of Old El Paso Green Chiles. I have tried a few different recipes over the last couple months and not really came across one that we liked. So, I headed to my cookbooks, and figured for sure that Pioneer Woman would have an Enchilada recipe, and yep, I was right, and it’s a keeper.


While reading through the ingredients, I was happy to see green chilies, another great recipe for me to try out these green chilies. The recipe also called for Enchilida Sauce, which I didn’t have, but I did remember seeing my friend, Lynn, had the recipe on her blog.  So I jumped on over, grabbed that recipe, which by the way, it also a keeper, and I was all set to start our Enchiladas.

And since, we need to move on to the giveaway…I’ll let you head on over to get the recipe from Pioneer Woman.

One lucky reader will win all of the items that I received, the football platter, the table runner, plates, napkins and the Old El Paso Green Chiles. I apoligize that you won’t receive these before the Super Bowl Game, but I’m sure you will have plenty of opportunity to use them during the year and again next year for the Super Bowl.

Full Disclosure: The package I received was provided to me by Old El Paso through My Blog Spark. They will provide the winner of this giveaway the same package. The views and recipes were my own.

    I make repeatedly deviled eggs. I use a piece of green chili for a decorative touch on the finished egg along with a little paprika.

  6. Karen A. says:

    I love to make a simple potato skins appetizer. Cut a potato into 1/4 inch slices, butter and salt them, then cook until soft and slightly brown. Then top with cheddar cheese and cooked bacon. Melt cheese in oven and serve. Delish and easy.

    Andouille Dip

    1 lb ground meat
    1 lb andouille sausage -remove casing
    1 lb Velvetta
    1 can cream of mushroom

    Brown Ground Meat and mix all together. (Sorry, Andouille sausage is probably just a southern thing- but its so yummy!)

  9. Susan says:

    I usually make a few different things for parties. Meat ( usually Summer Sausage that I have to order) and cheese tray. Some mini cheese bites (they would be good with the chili’s!!). Either chili or lasagne. I’ll make a couple of different quick bread and cut them into cubes for dessert.

    Believe it or not my favorite football party recipe is not on my blog! I need to get to that…thanks for the reminder;) I will however tell you what it’s all about.
    Hamburger, cheese, jalapenos, salsa and a little more cheese:) It’s awesome!!! BTW the little cans of green chiles are great thrown into chili. It adds great flavor and not tons of heat.

    The first request by my husband and my kids are my teriyaki chicken wings. I use teriyaki sauce, honey, garlic and brown sugar and I make sure they marinate for 24 hours before baking them. I only make them a couple of times throughout the year, because honestly, they don’t have tons of meat on them and for what I pay I can get LOTS of chicken legs that are much more filling! We also have meaballs & gravy, lasgna, fiesta dip & chips, mile high nachos and whatever anybody else brings over.
    Thanks for the chance!!

  42. Brenda says:

    I bet that is a delicious dip! I might try it with greek yogurt instead of sour cream

  43. Kristin says:

    YUM! I love little smokies. They are nothing special, but they sure do taste good. At our wedding, we served meatballs and little smokies alongside a BBQ fountain. That’s right, a BBQ fountain. All you have to do is use a chocolate fountain but pour BBQ sauce in it instead. It was a BIG hit!

  44. I wish I would have been at your place for the Super Bowl. I was in my PJ’s studying…so I didn’t make anything for the big event. But, when we have parties Joe loves for me to make dips. He loves almost kind of dip.

    Thanks for linking to Slightly Indulgent Tuesday!!
