O-reagano passed the ball, declined to flip the coin and let me have a go at this week's food entry. It's the Superbowl and I, a non-sports watcher am going to study the culinary depths of football fare and report the play-by-play. Medics are standing by.
On first glance in preparation--one has to know that this sports extravaganza can last beyond four hours. That is a lotta time in front of raw drama and would drive hunger into any being alive.
So I asked Cheese Boutique--do you have food to fuel the spirit of the rumbly crowd, I mean my stomach, to engage the spirit of the game?
Baby-Back Pork Ribs--a rack of it. Throw in oven with sauce. Gourmet Chili pre-made from Frontera-- add in house ground beef-- done. Gorge.
If you are looking for easy this is about as easy as it gets.
Heat set at 275° with a touchdown distance of 2 hours for completion--apply Frontera BBQ sauce liberally to not let them dry up and its done...I did also sprinkle garlic salt for a little spike to it while cooking.
Chili---I followed Frontera's instructions to a tee....heat ground beef for a few minutes or until all of it is browned in a deep saucepan...add bottle of chili...add one cup of water and stir on low heat to simmer. 20 minutes later--you're good to go.
Enjoy the game on Sunday, and if you need other suggestions for your Superbowl fix
