super bowl sunday!

I’ve got to be quite honest here, I’m not a huge fan of Football. Yes, last year when the Packers were playing I did enjoy the game (when I was paying attention anyways). The marketer in me more so enjoys the commercials ;). I am definitely hoping that they’re better than last year – they were so disappointing!

Jury’s still out on whether I’ll tune in on Sunday, but either way I think I’ll be making some snacks to eat throughout the day! I put these recipes together as a Christmas/NYE treat as a guest post on another blog, but never got around to reposting them here! I thought they were quite fitting with the Super Bowl, or really any snack-filled day!

Gluten Free Taco Dip

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 1T, or roughly half a packet of gluten free taco seasoning (look to avoid “wheat flour” as an ingredient)
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • Shredded cheese
  • Salsa of your choice
  1. Beat together the softened cream cheese, plain greek yogurt and the taco seasoning until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Layer on a serving plate and top with lettuce, cheese, salsa and any other ingredients you like such as olives or jalapenos – yum!
  3. Serve with gluten free tortilla chips (a majority of tortilla chips are made with 100% corn – naturally gluten free!).

Gluten Free BBQ Meatballs

  • 1 pound lean ground chicken
  • Gluten free BBQ sauce (Saz’s is delicious)
  1. Cut chicken into roughly 24 pieces (I did 6 rows of 4 cut in the container to make it simple).
  2. Roll into little balls and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
  4. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer into a pot on the stove and add in as much bbq sauce as you’d like.
  5. Warm up the sauce with the meatballs and serve warm! These would keep nice and warm in a crock pot or a small fondue dish.

  1. you know, i’m not the hugest football fan either. i try to get pumped, but i have a hard time paying attention. and they stop every two seconds!! i’ll prob watch this year b/c the giants are playing (when in rome…) but i’ll be wayyy more into the food 🙂

    • I know, it’s hard to force myself to actually watch it for enjoyment haha. Hopefully the commercials will at least be good? But yeah, it’s probably a good idea for you to watch it – you wouldn’t want to be shunned or anything ;).
