Disclaimer: I’ve never actually watched the Superbowl. However, since I watched the entire Friday Night Lights series on DVD last year, I feel like I could watch tomorrow and have at least half a clue as to what’s going on. But since there’s no Tim Riggins on the field, no Coach on the sidelines, and no Mrs. Coach in the stands, I probably won’t. That doesn’t stop me from making Superbowl snacks though!

My friend Jenn came over for a visit today, so I decided to make us a little lunch comprised of Superbowl snacks to eat as we discussed the game gossiped and watched Kardashians.  We had some mini meatballs I made with extra-lean ground beef and tossed in PC Beer & Chipotle Barbecue Sauce and some potato skins topped with cheese, bacon and green onions, with sour cream for dipping. Finally, I made some Buffalo Wing Hummus, that I saw in Food Network magazine, which has some hot sauce and BBQ sauce mixed in. It was delicious scooped up with baby carrots or barbecue rice chips.

Jenn also brought me the Retro Doritos and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Baking Mix I saw at Target back in November! Amazing!

Awesome recipe! This is a great way to make cut up veggies more fun. I just made it and added a drop of liquid smoke so that I can pretend that it is summer outside.

Buffalo wing hummus would be dangerous in our house! I can’t wait to give it a try! :)

These sound nice and a much healthier alternative to chicken wings and pizza (but pizza was home made and on a whole wheat crust, that’s gotta count for something) we had over at our house. We enjoyed the game though and cheered for the Giants, too; it was a first ever football game for my mum and for Punchi, too :)

Here in Britain the Superbowl has entirely passed me by… I have absolutely no interest in it. However, I’ve enjoyed seeing all the nice snacky food. Hummus is probably the king of the snack world – great looking recipe.
