Basically, Skirts Sports asked their fans to submit their favorite Super Bowl snack recipes and now I get to pick which is my favorite as the winner.
If only I could somehow turn this Recipe Judge gig into a full time job then my life would be totally complete.
I’ll work on making that become a reality, but for now, let’s talk about Super Bowl snacks.
The response to the contest has been incredible. Seriously, Skirts Sports fans know what good food is. There were so many scrumptious snack ideas to choose from and I honestly wish I could have tried them all.
Unfortunately, my grocery budget didn’t allow for that (maybe when I become a professional Recipe Judge full time it will), so I narrowed it down to the three that stood out most to me and then got to work.
Here were my picks.
-Easy Super Bowl Snack Recipes-
- Avocado and Feta Salsa (see below for recipe)
Regarding all three recipes, let me just say that my mind was blown. When I chose these three I was keeping a few important criteria in mind.
- The recipe has to be easy. (If you’ve read anything I’ve ever written about food you know that I’m all about spending less time on prep and more time on eating.)
- The recipe had to be enticing/creative/a little bit outside of the box…
- But it also had to have mass appeal (because, you know, you want to please ALL of your Super Bowl Party guests/comrades.)
The three recipes I picked all meet these guidelines, or at least I think they do.
If you’re wondering which I chose as the winner, well, to find out you’ll have to stay tuned to the Skirt Sports Facebook page. They’ll announce my final judgement call there today (Saturday Jan. 31).
For now, you can just revel in the joy of making each of these seriously scrumptious Super Bowl snacks to enjoy for yourself!
Avocado and Feta Salsa Recipe by Christina Ann Rylka
2 diced plum tomatoes,
1 avocado peeled pitted and chopped,
1/4 c finely diced red onion,
2 cloves of garlic minced,
1 T olive oil,
1 T red wine vinegar,
4 oz crumbled feta cheese.
1.) Mix all ingredients in a bowl, serve with pita chips. (Christina said sea salt is her favorite.)
*Note to the reader: I accidentally made this recipe as Feta “Guac” because the moment I saw the word avocado my mind immediately became closed off to all other possibilities. For some reason I figured the avocado needed to me mashed. Either way, it still came out deliciously and I have no doubt in my mind that it tastes just as great the way Christina intended it to be. 😛
Thanks to all my Skirt Sport sisters who submitted recipes! Don’t forget to check in on the Skirt Sports Facebook page today to see who the lucky winner is!
