Put together a great Super Bowl Party Menu with these easy Super Bowl party recipes. Super Bowl parties are not complete without the food and goodies!
Cheese Stuffed, Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 3 tbsp dry ranch salad dressing mix
- 30 large jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded
- 2 packages cooked bacon
- bacon crumbles, half package
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice off the top 1/4 of the peppers lengthwise. Remove the seeds and light colored vein.
Stir together the cream cheese, cheese, mayo, ranch dressing mix, and bacon crumbles. Fill each jalapeno half slightly overflowing with the cheese mix, wrap with a bacon strip, and secure with a toothpick.
Arrange the wrapped jalapeno halves onto a foil lined pan. Bake about 20 minutes.
- To reduce "heat" make sure you cut out all the vein that the seeds grow on.
- You can also soak the peppers in iced water for 10 minutes before filling to take some of the heat out of the peppers.
- These are just as good with fat free mayo and reduced fat cream cheese.
- I always wear gloves when cutting the jalapenos, otherwise my hands burn for hours. And for goodness sake, don't touch your eyes or face at all :)
Buffalo Chicken Dip (BCD!)

Crockpot Chili with cheese and corn chips

- 1 pound bacon, cut into small pieces
- 2 can of black beans, drained
- 2 can of kidney beans, drained

- 2 cubes beef bouillon
- 1/2 cup beer
- 1 package chili powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin

- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- Fritos, shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream for serving
Brown beef and bacon. Drain off grease.
Saute onions, garlic and peppers in little olive oil.
Mix the meat, onion and pepper, and all of the other ingredients in a large crock pot set on low, or a large stock pot on medium low heat. Cover and simmer for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.The longer it cooks the better it will taste. I make mine the day before, let it cool, and then reheat. Yum!
To serve, line the bottom of a bowl with fritos, pour chili over it, and top with cheese and sour cream.
