Super Bowl Sunday; while it's in a few days, you might not have started to prepare for it; which is fine, since I've got your back.... I promise that I've got your back. If you're celebrating the big game at the Hard Rock Stadium; cool. If you're not celebrating the big game at the Hard Rock Stadium, that's also cool, because I have a list of recipes for you of Super Bowl snacks that'll be offered at the stadium; so it's like you get to bring the stadium to you. Should also mention this beforehand, but all of the recipes below are from Centerplate and aren't my own; I'm just here to share them.

Texas Toast Garlic Bread Pepperoni Pizza

Liz Abere

For this pepperoni pizza, the recipe states that 16 servings of it could be made; and honestly, this is probably my favorite snack out of all of the Super Bowl snacks that are mentioned in this article.

Ingredients include:

Pizza sauce

Shredded mozzarella cheese


Two boxes of Marzetti, New York Texas toast garlic bread

Red Pepper Flakes

To make the pizza:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.

Spread pizza sauce on the garlic toast and top it with mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.

Bake for about four to five minutes and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.

Poblano Feta Dip

Liz Abere

Ingredients include (for three cups):

6 poblano chiles

One teaspoon of cumin seeds

Two cups of fresh leaves

Two cups of fresh mint leaves

Two cups of crumbled feta

Grated zest and juice of lemon

Four peeled garlic cloves

Two tablespoons of sherry vinegar

Coarse kosher salt

⅓ cup of water

To make the dip:

Char the chiles over the open flame of a gas grill.

Turn with tongs until skins are charred/blistered, which takes one to two minutes on each side.

While hot, seal inside a large plastic bag to steam for 10 min (not too long or they’ll start to turn brown).

Remove the charred skin, rubbing off gently with the back of a knife. Cut open one side of each chile and discard the stems, seeds and ribs.

Toast cumin seeds in a small, dry pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until fragrant, which takes one minute. Remove from heat.

Put poblano chiles, cumin, cilantro, mint, feta, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, vinegar, and salt in a blender and purée on medium-high speed, adding water a tablespoon at a time, until smooth. Use just enough water to blend the mixture to the consistency of hummus.

Serve with your favorite potato chips or toasted baguette.
