How Super Bowl Snacks Can Spread the Flu
Super Bowl Snacks
A funny story: my first phone conversation with Rich was two years ago, on Super Bowl Sunday. He called me during the game, and I assumed a guy who'd call a girl during the biggest football game of the year surely couldn't be too interested in the sport. We started dating, fell in love, and all was blissful — until the football season started in the fall. That's when Rich arrived at my place for a date, armed with a photocopy of the Jets game schedule, and suggested I stick it on my fridge. Turns out, my guy LOVES football.
But that's okay, see, because I love food. And when we settle in on Sundays for a day of football watching, I am always prepared with a menu of tasty treats we can snack on throughout the day. So I am looking forward to Super Bowl Sunday as much as he is!
If you're throwing a get-together yourself, you should check out my on how to throw a Superbowl Party (redbookmag.com/video) — there are some good ideas in there, culled not only from my own experience but from other REDBOOK staffers as well. And if you're looking for a few great recipes, look no further than our recipe finder. Rich has put in a special request for spicy chili on Sunday, and since he's way more into meat than he is into beans, I will probably whip up a batch of the Bowl of Redfeatured in the January '06 issue of REDBOOK. And for me, a more classic Fast Chicken Chili, though I might use ground turkey instead of chicken, just to shake things up.
I'll make some rice in my new rice cooker, put out some tortilla chips and some of my famous guacamole — see recipe below — and wait for the halftime show! Go Giants!

I love onions as much as the next girl -- but Rich doesn't. So when I'm making guacamole for the two of us, I amp up other flavors for a tasty dip.
1 avocado, mashed with fork or potato masher
juice from 1/2 lime
1 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
8 grape or cherry tomatoes, chopped
Mix all in a bowl, and add more salt as needed.
