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


  • 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


  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!

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

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
