PRE-GAME BITES

Erin’s actually made these and said that they were absolutely delicious, albeit time consuming.

BLT Dip

I’m selfishly including this recipe, because it’s my “go to” dish when I’m in charge of making something for a crowd. Better yet, I’m sharing the recipe from a blog I started that no one (but my family) read in 2011.

I even forgot the BACON last time I made it, and everyone still said it was amazing. Enjoy ramblings from a SUPER young me… but seriously, give the recipe a try. My favorite part about this is the versatility of swapping out seasonings that YOU have in house to make it as tasty as you need for your taste buds.

Spoiler alert: The healthiest ingredient in there is tomato or green onion. Next healthiest? Cream cheese…

Fun fact: this is apparently a “party salad” from the 1940s… Want to bring something that balances out the gluttony? Talk about a crowd pleaser. Whole Foods, clean and even vegan-friendly.

This recipe even includes all kinds of “what if I don’t like x, y, z” options to make this palatable for anyone.

THE MAIN EVENT

The Best Healthy Turkey Chili

I’ve never learned the history of why chili is SUCH a popular football and/ or party dish, but it is. I’d assume it’s because you can make (roughly) a gazillion servings and it can be made in a crockpot or Instant Pot so that we can prep the dish and move on.

Ambitious Kitchen doesn’t mess around with ingredients, so you can be sure that this will be the healthiest, yet tastiest, version of turkey chili out there.

Small bites are never a bad idea, especially when there are a dozen other options to much on. Impress your guests, or whoever has invited you over, with these sliders.

Again, another perfect option to please a crowd is with pizza! Keep it delicious, traditional, and maybe even a bit healthier than other options, with this delicious pesto pizza.

Bomb Ass Buffalo Chicken Dip

(submitted by Jessie Ray to Kendell at Bad Yogi)

Before we just toss this recipe at you, if you’ve never had Buffalo Chicken Dip, walk AND DON’T RUN to the store to have your taste buds explode with pleasure.

How to make it:

  • Poach the chicken (normally 2-3 breasts but depends on how much you want to make) bring water or broth to a boil, put the chicken in and let simmer for about 5-10 mins depending on breast size, turn off heat and cover pot and let it stand for about 15 mins
  • Shred the chicken in a bowl with two forks
  • Add franks red hot buffalo sauce (amount varies on how saucy you want it)
  • Lil butter
  • Lil cream cheese (the kind that comes wrapped in aluminum in cube form, NOT just cream cheese spread you’d get for a bagel – there’s a difference!!)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Bake in a dish at 350° just to warm it back through (10-15 min)
  • Serve with warmed bread or tortilla chips

Note from our chef: “I don’t really use a recipe with measurements I kind of just eyeball everything and again, it all depends on how much you want to make, how saucy or cheesy you want it, etc.”

 

Man, the beauty of cooking! Enjoy the tasty festivities this weekends, Super Bowl fans.
