Woo Hoo! Time to pig out on munchies this Sunday. Do you have a recipe to share? I'll post a few of mine in this thread.;)

6 LAYER TACO DIP

in a 9"x13x2" pan (or whatever you have handy):

Layer 1: 2 lbs browned ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning (I use the Taco Bell stuff)
Layer 2: 2 cups sour cream (I season this with one package of taco seasoning too)
Layer 3: 1 jar mild or hot salsa (Habanero if you like!)
Layer 4: chopped green onions
Layer 5: chopped tomatoes
Layer 6: shredded cheddar or taco cheese

Serve with Deli taco chips. Chill the seasoned ground beef before you add the sour cream.

You can also top with chopped cilantro, sliced black olives and sliced jalapeno's. I use "South of the Bordedr chips" only - I love those chips... everyone that has ever tried this loves it!

A layer of refried beans is good too!

Refried beans are just a big paste of goo. They won't know what they are. You can mix them in with the hamburger too.

Them wings look pretty good too! I'm coming over - what time does the party start! :burp:

The party starts when you get here!

Cocktail Wieners

1 jar Currant Jelly
Equal amount of chili sauce
1 pound of Smokey Links

Melt the jelly and blend in chili sauce.....heat thoroughly. Add the Smokey Links and stir them around coating each one with the sauce. Simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with wooden toothpicks.

I keep these warm in a crockpot on low, or the "keep warm" setting. The low setting on todays crockpots are a little hotter then the older ones, so watch em!

On special occasions like the superbowl, it gives me an excuse to hang out in the kitchen and do what I love to do. BTW, I go about 230, but I'm 6'3".

I will look for some healthy stuff to post. :)

Maybe its just me, but when I am sitting down in front of a big TV watching something that can cause yelling, screaming and flailing around of the arms, then I don't want food that is really messy.

We tend to eat things like bruchetta with various toppings like marinated sun dried tomatoes, onions and mushrooms. Or artichoke dip on crusty pieces of crisped bread. Plain boiled shrimp is another good one. All those things can be eaten by hand with minimal mess.

As for your bacon wrapped weenies, try this one.
Wrap a small piece of bacon around a large scallop, hold it together with a toothpick & broil it until the bacon is almost done. Douse it with some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ suace and broil until the bacon is completely done (you have to flip it). Do not overcook because the scallops cook quick.

This same reciepe can be altered to swap out the scallop and replace it with a water chestnut for a chruchy texture or even replace it with a raw shrimp.
