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

Super Bowl of Mexi DipSuper 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)
  4. Add the Cocoa Rice Krispies and carefully mix until all the cereal is coated with marshmallow
  5. With buttered hands, shape the mixture into small footballs. Set aside
  6. Put the white chocolate into a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Give it a good stir and, using a fork, drizzle the laces onto the footballs

A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.

He's respectful, loyal, and his hugs are the best ever(he's like a foot and 4 inches taller than me). the dilemma is, he'stwentyandI'mfifteenturningsixteensoon.... I'm not gonna even ask about dating him until i'm sixteen but I've called him in total anxiety attack crying my eyes out and he calmed me down and made me laugh, and I invited him to come see a choir performance so he spent the day with me... My mom ships us... but I'm a little worried because of the age difference  and experience difference and just, I don't want to miss the chance of being with him because of it. ​  any advice??? It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.
