Super Bowl Food

Every Super Bowl, I get a little teary-eyed because it signals the end of the football season. But, as I bid farewell to the game of football for 8 months, I celebrate with great food. Usually, my family orders pizza and relaxes in the comfort of our own home. This year, we continued relaxing at home, but we tried 3 new recipes: Soft Pretzels by Alton Brown, a take on the Spinach Queso from J. Alexander’s, and Andes Creme de Menthe Marbled Brownies (the recipe on the back of the Andes Mints Baking Chips bag).

I followed the recipe exactly for the soft pretzels and the brownies.

I changed a few items for the spinach queso. Instead of Velveeta, I used pepper jack and monterey jack cheeses. I also used chopped spinach instead of creamed spinach. The store was out of jalepeno peppers, so I used 1 can of diced green chiles. I didn’t add the tomato, but I will add it the next time. I also added some milk to smooth out the consistency.

Concensus:

The soft pretzels were YUMMY! Definitely making them again.

The spinach queso was very good. It was a little thick, and it needed something (maybe tomatoes). I’m glad I used regular cheese and chopped spinach. I’ll make this again too, but with a few changes.

The brownies were also delicious. The baking chips melted on top and created a chocolate shell of deliciousness!

Overall, we were very satisfied with the snacks of choice!
