#Realtalk, when’s the last time you went to a SuperBowl party that had a homemade dish… I mean a true HOMEMADE dish?! Well, unless you’re friends with a chef then I’m going to go out on a limb and say nearly 50% of your menu is probably coming your local market’s deli or freezer section.
Don’t worry, I’m not knocking you! My favorite lady (aka my grandma) is known for her classic “Cole Slaw” which just so happens to be that secret family recipe from KFC!!!
Why not throw a teaser out there this year and really knock the socks off your friends? I mean come on, since you’re going to the store anyways, it’s not like you have to go out of your way! Plus, you can double or triple this recipe and make it all at once, leaving you more time to enjoy the company of your friends. Rather than spending your time throwing frozen apps in the oven, this homemade enchilada meal with spicy enchilada sauce and a tri color refried black bean dip will pair perfectly with homemade guacamole and the spicy cilantro dressing that tops your chopped salad.
Trust me, you’ll be the talk of the town when your friends leave feeling guilt free and happy as can be! Come Monday morning when they hit the scale, I promise they’ll be screaming your praises for the delicious yet nutritious homemade meal you made them.
Here’s to a happy SuperBowl filled with friends, family & food! Enjoy!
