Super Bowl Sunday is quickly approaching, and it's time to prepare for your Super Bowl party!
Besides just watching the big game this Sunday between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, throw a party where you and your friends can sit down and enjoy cool refreshing, drinks and some amazing party foods.
But instead of the usual Super Bowl party fare you're used to cooking and eating (hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.), why not spice up the party with some creative, budget-friendly alternatives you can easily make at home? I'm talking about burritos and chili con carne.
Online cooking show "Dude Food" offers video tutorial recipe guides on how to cook up these tasty treats. Hosted by Sean and Adam, the show's recipes are super easy to follow, and under each video there is a list of ingredients, cooking directions and a summary of all the cooking information.
Out of the two options, the dish that really caught my attention was Sean’s "Rock-Em Sock-Em Knock-Em Dead Chili con Carne." In this dish, Sean includes ground turkey, black beans, jalapenos, onions, tomato paste, brewed coffee(!), hot sauce, lime and more! The Chili con Carne is very spicy, so if you know you or any of your guests cannot handle spicy foods, I suggest avoiding this dish at all costs.
On the other hand, his "Burritos Gone Wild" is a perfect substitute for people who don't enjoy eating spicy foods. "Dude Food" offers a chicken option, and they both contain cheese, black beans, garlic, onions, chipotle peppers, white rice and more. For the vegetarian version, you can substitute chicken for red potatoes. Sean even has a pico de gallo recipe that serves as the perfect condiment.
So, you have the "Burritos Gone Wild" and "Rock-Em Sock-Em Knock-Em Dead Chili con Carne Chili" as the main courses at the party, but what about the sides to go along with them?
"Dude Food" also has a recipe for "Beer-Batter Baked Onion Rings" and "English Muffin Pizzas." Both options are simple to make and don't take that long to cook compared to the two main courses. The onions rings just require onions, beer, corn flakes, flour and some seasonings. For the pizzas, you'll need English muffins, marinara pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and olive oil. Simple!
No matter what the final score is after Super Bowl XLVIII, guests will leave your party wanting more of these tasty and unique super bowl party dishes!
