Super Plate, err Super Glass? Oh! Super Bowl! That's it!

I think there is something called "Superbowl" on this weekend. Don't ask me, I'll be sipping a diet Coke while I read a book or surf online... after I make my family some yummy "football food" as we call it.

Some regulars we have while our families two biggest NFL fans; my husband and daughter, regularly watch and root 'our' team (the Minnesota Vikings) are Nacho Dip, a meat and cheese platter, hot wings, sesame wings, stuffed mushrooms, jalapeno poppers, Spinach Artichoke Dip with tortilla chips, tortilla roll ups, etc. I'll make similar this weekend during the SuperPlate... errr, SuperBowl... *snicker* and I'll share a few recipes with you. Enjoy!


1 lb. ground beef, browned
1/2 pkg. taco mix
4 oz. cream cheese
1 c cheddar
4 oz. Velveeta
1 jar salsa
2-3 green onions, chopped
1 can rinsed and drained black beans

Cook in a small crock pot and serve with tortillas - the scoopable kind are perfect


2 lbs. chicken wings and drummies
1 - 8 oz. bottle italian dressing
3/4 c hot pepper sauce (Franks, Louisiana or as hot as you like!)
2 T butter, melted

Mix the dressing and hot sauce together and marinate the wings overnight, saving out 1/2 cup of the sauce beforehand for basting later. Grill or broil the wings covered about 15-20 minutes. Add the melted butter to the reserved sauce and baste the wings, grilling another 10 minutes until done. Baste them alot for the best flavor.

*Note* To make it easier for me tomorrow I'm actually cooking all my wings and drummies today in the crockpot. After a 6-8 hour cook time I'll pop them into the fridge and finish them off under the broiler tomorrow. Quick and easy!

Here is a Bleu Cheese Dressing to dip your wings in... (already posted previously but I want to keep a copy with the wings to make it easy for you!)


1/2 c mayonnaise
1 c sour cream
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T rice wine vinegar (or regular if you please)
1 T lemon juice
1/2 c bleu cheese crumbled

salt and fresh cracked black pepper

Mix and chill.

Are you serving a homemade onion blossom, or onion rings or onion petals? Dip them in this.... no, really. Make it and serve it... do not pass go do not collect $100.

Onion Blossom Sauce

1/2 c mayonnaise
2 t ketchup
2 T kraft horseradish sauce
heavy dash of paprika, salt, dried oregano, black pepper and cayenne pepper
