Super Bowl Snacks

In preparation for the big event this weekend, here are three of our favorite crowd-loving party snacks:

And, because I simply cannot leave you hanging with drool exiting your lips, here are the recipes for said snacks!

And, keep reading for the delectable yet healthy Fruit Salsa + Sweet Chips recipe....

Ingredients for Fruit Salsa:
(Fruit, any fruit, will do for this recipe, so use what you have and you won't go wrong!)
2 large apples
1/2 pear
2 kiwis
12 oz strawberries
2 Tbsp peach apricot preserves (or any kind of fruit preserves or jam)
A splash of orange juice (if you need added moisture, but I didn't this time around)

Ingredients for Sweet Chips:
8 small flour tortillas
4 Tbsp butter, melted
Cinnamon & Sugar to sprinkle

1. To prepare the sweet chips, preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil.

2. Slice flour tortillas into small chip-sized wedges using a pizza cutter or sharp knife.

3. Lay the wedges out on foil-lined baking sheet, and brush surface of tortillas with melted butter.

(yes, that's a paintbrush...don't judge)

4. Sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar.  Give it a generous dusting, or two.

5. Bake chips for about 15-18 minutes in preheated oven.  They'll come out golden and crispy like below.

6. To prepare the fruit salsa, cut up your fruit into equal size pieces.  And, toss them by the handful into a food processor or blender.  Your final consistency should be that of regular salsa, just a bit chunky but not too watery  (I used a blender and was careful to use the pulse function so as to not turn it into a fruit smoothie...)

7. Pour salsa out into a bowl, then add your 2 Tbsp of fruit preserves and splash of orange juice, if needed.

It's ready to serve, or you can put it in the fridge overnight.  Delicious, either way!

Now, grab your snacks, pop a squat, and enjoy the game.  (Go Ravens...only because we used to live in Baltimore and Baltimore sure does love their hometown team!)
