If a Super Bowl party is in your future, you might want to try one of these recipes. The first is an old one, and has been traditional for football games for many years, Buffalo Chicken Wings. This is the official recipe put out by Frank’s Hot Sauce, and it’s really good.
The next two dishes are dips, one hot and one cold, but both are super easy and a little out of the ordinary. The Jalapeno Dip takes just a couple minutes to mix up in a food processor or blender, and is always a hit. If you like things really hot and spicy, substitute a jar of salsa for the stewed tomatoes. It’s great with chips or fresh veggies.
The E Z Tex-Mex Dip uses canned tamales and chili and may sound strange, but I think you’ll like it. Cut corn tortillas in wedges and fry till crisp in hot oil to serve along with it for a real treat.
