Kidzworld Kitchen: Super Bowl Snack Time

Jan 27, 2014

Come February 2nd, people all across the continent will be huddled around their TVs watching every tense moment and edge-of-your-seat play of the XLVIII Super Bowl! And no matter who they are rooting for, all those face-painted pig-skin fans are going to have one thing in common – they’re going to be hungry! Here are few snack ideas to keep up the energy level for cheering, high fiving and chest bumping.

Super Bowl of Mexi Dip

Kidzworld Kitchen: Super Bowl Snack TimeSuper Bowl of Mexi Dip

Ingredients:

  • 1 (540ml) can refried beans
  • 1-1/2 cups of low fat sour cream
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 (341ml) can niblet corn
  • 2 medium avocadoes
  • Juice of 1 lime  
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cumin (Hint! It’s pronounced Q-Min)
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sliced black olives
  • ½ cup finely sliced green onion

Instructions:

  1. Combine the tomatoes, cilantro, corn, salt and pepper and half of the juice of a fresh lime and mix thoroughly with a slotted spoon. Set aside
  2. Pit your avocados (Hint! The best way to cut an avocado is to slowly insert a small knife in the top of one end and when it touches the pit in the middle slide your knife all around the whole fruit lengthwise till you are left with two halves. Use the knife to cut tic tac toe lines through the avocado and then use a spoon to scoop it out)
  3. In a bowl, add the avocados, the juice of half a lime, salt and pepper, and cumin. Mash it all together with a potato masher (or back of a fork). Set aside
  4. Time to build! In the bottom of an 11”x7” casserole dish evenly spread the refried beans with the back of a spoon
  5. Sprinkle ½ the cheese over top
  6. On top of the cheese, spread out the guacamole mixture
  7. Now you are ready to add the sour cream, spreading out with the back of a spoon
  8. Layer on the fresh tomato salsa, but be sure to use a slotted spoon so you don’t get the liquid
  9. Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese and green onions
  10. Serve with your favourite tortilla chips and enjoy!

  3. Stir in peanut butter (Hint! Feel free to leave out the peanut butter)

  5. With buttered hands, shape the mixture into small footballs. Set aside

Your style is simply whatever you want to wear! Just wear whatever feels comfortable, or whatever you think looks good, and it is your style (: It doesn't matter if it's not entirely individual and unique, as long as it's what you feel happy wearing.

I love both my parents equally, but I prefer to spend time with my dad. My father works abroad so I see him a lot less than my mother, but it means that when I see him it feels more special :3
