Super Recipes for your Game Day Bash
Submitted by Mila Carney
To your favorite jar of salsa, drain and add:
2 cans black eyed peas
2 stalks of celery diced
1 medium red onion diced
1 can of corn, drained
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon garlic powder OR
2 cloves of fresh garlic minced
You can vary the recipe to your personal taste by adding more or less of anything. But it's my favorite go-to guilt-free party must-have. Make it ahead of time. It gets better with time.
You can eat this with your favorite scoopable chip, you can spoon it on a hot dog, or pile it on a slider. Or if your name is Jeremy Tracey, just get a spoon! Mmmm!

Crock-Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
1/2 cup ranch
1 lb chicken (or rotisserie chicken from the deli)
Cook your chicken (bake or boil), shred it (after cooked or if rotisserie), and dump that plus everything else in the crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours, mixing occasionally. Time depends on your crock pot. Serve with tortilla chips

Italian Won-Ton Cup Things
Start with your favorite brand of ground Italian sausage, and cook it thoroughly. Grease a muffin tin and line each cup with a won-ton wrap (usually found in the produce section, I don't know why). Mix the sausage with your favorite shredded cheese (at least a cup), freshly minced garlic (2 cloves), and I also add about half of a small onion (caramelized)--but the onion is not part of the original recipe. Coat it all with ranch dressing. Spoon the mix into the won-tons, and sprinkle with more cheese. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until the won-tons are golden brown and the cheese is thoroughly melted.

Shredded BBQ Chicken
My favorite super bowl recipe is simple. Shredded BBQ chicken done in the Crock-Pot.
6-7 chicken breasts frozen in Crock-Pot cover with one bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce and set on low for about 3-4 hours.
Shred chicken and serve on rolls or even a salad.
