How many people do you have about to join in on the Super Bowl at your home? Chances are, you will be entertaining at least a few people! Do you have tested and true foods that you serve each time you are entertaining? My family has their favorite go to dishes that they love to see grace the snack table. With expectations of the food being as great as the game, I set out to comply to their most wanted tastes and requests. In my offerings I include dips, chips, crock pot meats, and anything I can make ahead, because I want to sit and watch the game too! Isn’t it funny how food is so much a part of the Super Bowl? Here is one of my favorite lavishly easy appetizers to prepare. The versatility on this particular recipe ranges from meat to meatless, so here’s how you can lavishly live food out loud during the Super Bowl.
Make sure you stock up on chips(corn tortillas) as well as crackers, because this dip will have everyone scooping, especially when served warm! If you have ever enjoyed wings while you have dined out, then this recipe is for you. Rather than eating a wing you will be spreading the great flavor on crackers, bread, toast, etc and you will love this flavor.
1 Package of 8 oz Cream Cheese (Any brand)(softened)
1 Cup of Shredded cheese (your choice)
Hot Sauce(1/4 C) more or less depending on how much heat you want.
1/2 C of Ranch or Blue Cheese depending on what taste your family likes
1 can of shredded chicken breast, drained and broken a part well.
Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes until the top is golden brown. Allow to set and serve warm or just out of the oven(do watch it will be scalding hot)
Simply mix the cream cheese to the shredded cheese to the chicken meat and then stir in the ranch or blue cheese.
This is what the dish looks like when completed.
Now if you are like me, you won’t want to eat meat, therefore my substitute in this is shrimp or crabmeat. Just drain one can of crabmeat and stir it in as you would have stirred in the chicken meat.
The Super Bowl can be super without a ton of work! A few lavish treats that don’t take lots of time to prepare are perfect choices and this one is a great way to cover vegetarians(by subbing in crab) and those that love meat(chicken). Lavishly add this to your food spread for the Super Bowl and live food out loud.
