It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Super Bowl! Fields goals, touchdowns, interceptions and more! Who are we kidding, we’re cheering for the food. Cue the replay (rewind)…Chilli, beer, jalapeño poppers and more!

The Super Bowl is the next big eating event post holiday landing smack-dab in the middle of the winter months. But what makes the Super Bowl the best eating event all year? The fact that you get to eat all the food and there’s no gift or shopping trip required (except for the grocery store and beer store, duh!)

This year’s Super Bowl snack is inspired by the rich, cheesy and perfect two bite jalapeño popper. Served deconstructed on a crostini, we turned this fan favourite into an elegant, decadent and optional knife and fork dish into a perfect for all the personalities at your Super Bowl party, no matter their motive.

Bon appetit xo
