Snacking On Your Super Bowl Leftovers

By Swetha Rajagopal

Now that the Super Bowl is over and the Patriots have won, which might have been disappointing to certain people (like me), you might have to eat your way out of sadness. Many of you will probably have leftovers from the Superbowl, and there are some snacks you can keep and even transform into new and nifty recipes.

Chicken Wings

Definitely keep these! You can always reheat and devour them, or you could strip off the meat and add a little zing to your enchiladas or tacos.

Salsa and Guacamole

You can add a bold flavor to soups by adding salsa. If you’ve got some guacamole, thin and flatten it (just like the Patriots’ football) with chicken or vegetable broth. If soup isn’t working for you, you can always just repurpose it as a good ol’ chip dip.

 

Chili

Sure, you can always just reheat chili and gobble it up, but, with just a few tweaks, you can transform it into a completely different meal. Now, what could you possibly transform chili into? The answer you’re looking for is Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie. First, cook the chili until it becomes thick. Then, spoon it into a baking dish, smoothing out the top. Add a thick layer of mashed potatoes and stick it into an oven that’s 375 degrees F until heated through and just golden in spots.

Potato Chips

If you don’t want to keep munching on these, crumble them up and substitute them for breadcrumbs for recipes such as onion rings, breaded chicken, and much more.

Mozzarella Sticks

They do not reheat that well, and if they did heat well, they’ll probably fall apart if you try to pick them up. However, they make a great sandwich layer!

Ribs

If you want a little creative remix, then it’s time to create delicious hand-pies. Strip the meat off the ribs, then stuff spoonfuls of it into puff pastry or pie dough, and bake it until the hand-pie is golden brown. Mmmm, yummy!

 

Pizza

Now, you can turn pizza into a great breakfast! Transform pizza into a frittata or a breakfast casserole by following the recipe links shown below.
