My little tumblr universe is 90% about sports (mostly football), 9% about cars and fashion, and 1% random stuff. I like a lot of teams and players, but I'm partial to the Redskins who I let break my heart every year. Oh yeah, I can be completely silly too.

Tailgating and Football Sunday Recipes - can use hot sauce if no Sriracha sauce

(via Sriracha-Glazed Chicken Recipe | Cooking | How To | Martha Stewart Recipes)

Recipes for Football Sundays - Chili Cheese Nachos

  • 14 oz bag tortilla chips
  • 8 oz pkg Sargento shredded cheese
  • jar jalapeno peppers
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • can diced black olives
  • chili (homemade or canned)
  • diced tomatoes
  • sour cream
  • salsa

There are no rules when it comes to topping nachos; just go for what you like. These are some of my favorites for a perfect snack for football Sundays.

Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet or pizza pan with aluminum foil. Spread about half of a 14-ounce bag of tortilla chips around the pan evenly. Sprinkle half of the cheese evenly over the chips (I like the 4 cheese Mexican variety of Sargento). Repeat with remaining chips and cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with 4 cups warm chili. Add your favorite toppings — mine are: canned sliced black olives, chopped green onions and tomatoes, jar of deli-sliced jalapeno peppers. Serve sour cream and salsa on the side or atop your nachos.

Never to early to start tailgating says Chesapeake Bay area native Chris Schlesinger. Here’s his recipe for some spicy shrimp you can throw on the grill on gameday.

Baltimore-style Old Bay Grilled Shrimp
1 stick of butter
12 large shrimp, with tails on
2 Tablespoons of Old Bay
2 lemon quarters
Tabasco sauce or favorite hot sauce to taste
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
 
Heat grill to medium-high. Put butter in medium-sized metal bowl and melt on grill. Place shrimp on three or four skewers and rest on a plate. Pour about one quarter of melted butter over shrimp, coating both sides. Set butter aside, keeping warm. Sprinkle shrimp generously on both sides with Old Bay. Grill shrimp until well seared, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, flipping just once. Grill lemon quarters on both fleshy sides until well marked. Add Tabasco to the reserved melted butter and stir. Remove shrimp from skewers and place into bowl of butter and Tabasco. Squeeze juiced from grilled lemons. Add a dash more Old Bay. Sprinkle with parsley and toss. Serves 2 to 4.

Tomorrow during the Super Bowl, Americans will eat an estimated 1.25 billion chicken wings. Pull up a chair, unbutton your pants, and leave the ranch dressing at home, because Joe Ray brought back some wing wisdom from Buffalo, N.Y., birthplace of the spicy snack. 

We met on Main Street at Frank and Teressa’s Anchor Bar, which is, slightly debatably, where wings were invented. The gist of the most common folk history is that the bartender’s drunken friends came in late one night in 1964 looking for something to ward off a pending hangover. All Teressa had in the fridge were some wings, hot sauce and butter.

“Truth is, nobody wants to admit how simple making wings is,” said [chef Andy] Denne, while ordering a few. “There’s no secret. You deep fry ’em ’til they’re cooked, then toss ’em in hot sauce and butter.”
