Popcorn with Cheddar Cheese and Buffalo Sauce
It will be a winner in those nervous moments. Make sure you prepare enough because the big game is always full of those plays that take our breath away.
2 (3-ounce) bags of microwavable buttered popcorn
1/3 cup buffalo sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup blue cheese, crumbled
3 green onions, thinly sliced
- Prepare popcorn according to package directions. Transfer to a large bowl.
- Mix buffalo sauce, paprika and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Drizzle buffalo sauce mixture over popcorn and toss until evenly coated.
- Add cheddar and blue cheese and mix to combine. Top with green onions and serve.
Cheesy Potato Nachos
Get creative with the appetizer table by preparing a different version of these potato nachos that will get everyone's attention. Make sure the cheddar cheese is completely melted.
1 1/2 pounds baby gold potatoes
1 tablespoon butter
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped cooked bacon
Sour cream, optional
Green onions, optional
- Place potatoes on a large plate and prick each potato in two places with a fork.
- Microwave potatoes on high for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
- Mash each potato with a fork and spread the butter over all of them. Sprinkle it with salt.
- Top the potatoes evenly with the grated cheese and bacon. Microwave on high for 1 minute until the cheese is melted. If cheese is not completely melted, microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.
- Top potatoes with sour cream and green onions if desired.
Pastelillitos de Guayaba
Your Latino touch will come through strong at the table with this easy-to-make version of guava pastelitos. Great for sweetening the mood as the players move through the game.
4 (14-ounce) packages frozen puff pastry dough
2 (14-ounce) blocks of guava paste
1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese
1 (8-ounce) package mascarpone cheese
1 egg with 1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup turbinado sugar for topping
- Remove the puff pastry dough from the freezer, let it thaw at room temperature.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut the guava block pastry into thin rectangular slices. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, use a spoon to combine the mascarpone cheese and cream cheese. Set aside.
- Beat the egg and water in a small bowl and set aside.
- On a lightly floured surface, place the puff pastry dough. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut the dough into 8 equal parts.
- Place 2 thin slices of guava paste and 1 1/2 tablespoons of cream cheese on 4 pieces of puff pastry. Dredge the edges of the filled dough in the egg mixture.
- Slit the remaining 4 pieces of dough. The slits will serve to release air while the dough bakes.
- Use the grooved dough to cover the filled dough. Trim any uneven areas or excess dough and seal the edges of the pastries with a fork. Dredge the tops of the empanadas in the egg mixture and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
- Repeat steps 6-10 for the remaining puff pastry sheets until all the pastries are done.
- Place the pastries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve when slightly cooled.
