Hello, all! I know many of you are planning to throw a watch party this Sunday. Here are a few of my absolute favorite Super Bowl finger food recipes!

Copycat El Acapulco Queso

My grandpa has had this family recipe for years, and it has constantly received complement after complement. It is a tangy yet creamy version of the ever loved Mexican restaurant queso. Like El Acapulco’s queso, this recipe is a yellow cheese dip. You and all your guests will love it!

For this recipe, you will need:
– 4 Tbs flour
– 1 stick of butter
– 1 + c. milk
– 1 can Rotel
– 24 slices of American cheese
– 1 tsp cumin seed
– 1 tsp ground cumin
– 1 tsp chili powder

You will start by making a roux. This is incredibly easy. Melt the butter over medium-high heat, and add the flour. Cook the butter and flour mixture for a minute – your flour should begin to look golden brown. This roux will make your queso creamy. If you were to skip this step, you would have a soup, rather than a dip.

Add 1 cup milk and Rotel to your roux. You will mix this all together, to blend in the roux with the liquids. At this time, you will add the cumin seed, ground cumin, and chili powder.

Once it is all mixed, You will add the cheese, one slice at a time, constantly stirring. Once everything is mixed together, continue stirring until the dip is the consistency you prefer. You will add more milk during this time. You just add as much milk as you prefer. I like my cheese dip to be really creamy, so I usually add around 2-3 cups of milk.

Serve immediately with tortilla chips or Doritos!

Homemade Tortilla Chips

This recipe comes from Live Healthy, and it is incredibly easy, tasty, and fresh. These chips will go wonderfully with any dip or guacamole!

For this recipe, you will need:
– flour tortillas
– olive oil
– onion powder
– garlic powder
– dried parsley
– dried basil
– salt and pepper

You will start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. You will then cut your tortillas into fours. Lightly cover the tortillas with olive oil, and sprinkle your tortillas with onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, basil, salt, and pepper. You want to add seasoning before baking your chips.

After your tortillas have been seasoned, bake your tortillas until they are crispy and golden brown. This will be about 10-15 minutes.

The chips are easily adapted to your preference, too. If you prefer spicy chips, you can top your tortillas with chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. You can also make dessert chips with sugar and cinnamon.

Copycat BWW Spicy Garlic Wings

I love making this recipe for every event! The only thing you actually have to make is the Spicy Garlic sauce, which can be preserved in the freezer for months.

For this recipe, you will need:
– fried boneless chicken wings
– 1/2 c. Red’s Cayenne hot sauce
– 3/4 tsp garlic powder
– 1/2 tsp sugar
– 1/4 tsp black pepper
– 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
– 1 tsp water

Begin by combining all ingredients in a saucepan on low heat. Simmer for 20 minutes, and apply to fully cooked wings. Serve with Ranch Dressing or Blue Cheese Dressing.

Ham and Cheese Sliders

Carrie from Eating on a Dime really out did herself with this one. This is such a crowd pleaser, and though it isn’t great for a diet, it tastes so good! You can make a bunch of these little sliders at a time, making it perfect for a crowd.

For this recipe, you will need:
– 12 King’s Hawaiian Rolls
– 3/4 c. melted butter
– 1 Tbs Dijon Mustard
– 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
– 1 tsp brown sugar
– 1 tsp Poppy Seeds
– 2 tbs dried minced onions
– thin sliced deli ham
– thin sliced Swiss cheese

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and combine butter, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, poppy seeds, and minced onions. Set aside.

Slice your Hawaiian rolls to make a sandwich. You will do this in one piece, instead of breaking the rolls into individuals. This saves a ton of time.

Place the bottom of your Hawaiian roll “sandwich” inside the bottom of a baking dish. You will then layer the thinly sliced ham and cheese atop the rolls. Place the top of your “sandwich” on the cheese, and top with your butter mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown. Cut along the original roll lines and serve.

    They look great. I would be tempted to add a spot of pineapple to the Hawaiian rolls for the cheese sliders, for an extra Hawaiian touch.

    1. That sound delicious! I will have to try that.
