What is your favorite food to watch the Super Bowl with?

I’m a big fan of wings. I also like to make pizza before some big games.

In terms of snacks, I have a couple of recipes.

Mozzarella sticks are very easy to make. All you have to do is get string cheese and add breakcrumbs. Use egg to make the crumbs stick, and bake until the cheese starts melting. It’s simple and good.

I also like making my own potato chips if I have the time. Those are more time intensive. You have to slice up the potato. Then soak it in salt water for around a half hour to an hour. Then you can add some spice to it like BBQ for taste. Then fry it with oil. Once they become gold and crispy, put them on a paper towel to drain.

I like jalapeno poppers too. I found a good recipe on this website.

Remember to wear some disposable gloves when working with jalapeno peppers-- and don’t touch your face!

If you don’t have any plastic gloves, I have slipped my hands into baggies to protect them from the oils that can really burn and sting for hours.

In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, and pepper jack cheese.

In a pot of barely simmering water, blanch the pepper halves for 2 minutes, drain and dry thoroughly.

Spoon mixture into the jalapeno pepper halves.

Put the milk and flour into two separate small bowls.

Dip the stuffed jalapenos first into the milk then into the flour, making sure they are well coated with each.

Allow the coated jalapenos to dry for about 10 minutes.

Dip the jalapenos in milk again and roll them through the breadcrumbs.

Allow them to dry, then repeat to ensure the entire surface of the jalapeno is coated.

In a medium skillet, heat the oil to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C).

Deep fry the coated jalapenos 2 to 3 minutes each, until golden brown.

Remove and let drain on a paper towel.
