Super Bowl of Chili: 5 Snacks To Try For The Big Game.

This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday and I am 100% certain I will be watching Law and Order: SVU reruns. Although, I enjoy watching football I didn’t watch one game all season so prevent myself from feeling fraudulent I will opt out.  Who knows that may change but I doubt it.  This doesn’t mean I cannot enjoy some goodies on Sunday. Snacks are one of our unalienable rights. Life, “Liberty and the Pursuit of Snacks Happiness.” – Thomas Jefferson.  While roaming around the mean streets of the internet I found these treats that you will find useful well after kickoff.

Nachos are always a crowd pleaser. Nobody could accuse this recipe from The Pioneer Woman of being skimpy on the toppings. Check it out here.

When I saw these Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers  I knew it would be the beginning of a long lasting love affair. Bacon wrapped anything is always a win. Bacon wrapped bacon is particularly my favorite. Worth The Mess brings it with this multi textured delight. Get the recipe *Note* Once 99% baked you can put it in your broiler on low for 1-2 minutes to give it a more grilled taste.

*Note* I would add cumin and maybe some green onions to the cream cheese just for a little bit extra.

WINGS! So many wings so little time buffalo, fried, jerk, baked, grilled. one million marinades to choose but I settled on something a little less traditional for Sunday, Korean Fried BBQ wings from the nice folk at The Kitchn.

Now you need something to wash down all these goodies. I don’t like beer but I love those Lime-A-Ritas from Bud Light. Not sure what it is supposed to be but it is tasty. So if you can’t get jiggy with beer but don’t want to be a square during the festivities, try this beer with a berry berry nice twist. Strawberry Beer Lemonade.

*Bonus*

Here are some cool designer helmets from various brands I found while around the city.
