Super Bowl Appetizers {normal dips not included}

I figured I would get with the game and include several of my favorite appetizers for those interested in DIFFERENT options for game day.


Like it or not, food plays a huge part in a party especially when sports are involved.  We have an invitation to go to one of the grad student's home where we will be able to enjoy the game on a 52' plasma. Despite the fact that there will not be a favorite team playing at least we will be able to watch it in HD!


Pace Picante Phyllo Party Cups

One of the appetizers I decided to take was a winning recipe from last year. I have made this recipe several times already and it can be made vegan or non-vegan. I entered it for the PACE Picante Sauce contest on Foodbuzz and won a nice wad of cash for it. Does it mean the appetizer is a winner? Of course!

 It is chips and dip in cupcake form where the chip layer is the phyllo that bakes to a crispiness, and it is filled with a layer of refried beans, cream cheese mixed with Pace Picante, and topped with cheese. I add chicken before the cheese because Ryan requests it but it is delicious without chicken too!

Another favorite of mine are these cute mini empanadas made with whole wheat white flour and filled with 2 different types of filling. You can make your own filling, so be creative! It comes with a Pace Picante guacamole for dipping.


Wild Mushroom Pâté with Crudités
From An Opera Singer in the Kitchen


How about some delicious and healthy dips? I know some of you want to have them available or pretend to have something healthy out there, but these do go a long way. They are tasty and flavorful. The Wild Mushroom Pâté with Crudités is super easy to make and can be made with any type of mushrooms not just wild mushrooms. It can be serves with crackers and veggies too!


Parsley Cashew Cheeze Spread

How about a Cheeze Ball? This not a traditional cheese ball with nuts covered the mold but the cheese ball IS made from nuts. The beauty of cashews soaked for hours can create an amazing and delicious cheeze ball that will have people guessing.


Hickory Cheese Stuffed Prunes with Crumbled Tempeh Bacon

How about some other hot bites? I shared these stuffed prunes filled with Wayfare's hickory Smoked Cheeze and crumbled tempeh bacon that prepared for New Year's. These are different but definitely great if you like sweet and salty combinations.

Jumbo Jalapeño Poppers
My last one would be the newest appetizer creation. My Jumbo Jalapeño Poppers are sure to keep you on your feet. There is nothing like having a bit of spice to get those endorphins going!

Whether you try any of these or not, party food is fun to create. Make a different something to impress your friends and family, especially if you can fool them into believing it is all vegan goodness!

Have a great Super Bowl Sunday!
