It's kick-off time for the Superbowl -- which is THE big
day for snacks and finger foods. If you're planning a party,
the menu needs to be your "Most Valuable Player" on Game Day:
the only thing that separates an avid fan from a rabid one is good
One surefire option? Fiesta's party trays*: buffalo
wings, sandwiches, fruit, veggies... All the snack foods that
you'll want for your guests with minimal work on your part:
you place the order, you pick up the food, you join the party!
Even better, our party trays are designed to be crowd-pleasers,
from the first zesty bite from a heaping tray of buffalo wings to
the last crunch from an abundant vegetable tray.
Be sure to keep tabs on the Playoff
schedule in time to order your party trays!
Taking the Do-It-Yourself route? We've got that preference
covered, too. In fact, here are a few tips & ideas to
take a standard Superbowl menu up to a "wow"-inducing level,
without busting your budget or your jeans:
-Nachos, l'il smokies and chips with seven-layer bean dip
are always fabulous, but consider providing tasty alternatives that
are calorie conscious and/or low sodium. Popcorn is a
wonderfully versatile choice. Instead of butter & salt,
go for zesty flavor combinations: a salt-free herb blend and
a dash of lemon juice; chile powder and lime juice; cayenne pepper
and brown sugar.
-For chicken wings andcrudités(the raw veggies usually
served: celery, carrots, etc.), try different dipping
condiments in addition to the traditional barbecue sauce and ranch
dressing: citrusy,mojo-style marinades/dressings; a teaspoon
of curry powder mixed in a cup of plain yogurt; diced tomatoes with
a pinch of basil & oregano added to low-fat sour cream.
-Keep plenty of seltzer on hand. The no-calorie
beverage has moved off the sidelines, joining the mainstay diet
sodas and light beers. A perk about seltzer is that its
"fizziness" picks up almost any fruit juice -- and also dilutes the
carb content of a fruity beverage without dulling the taste.
With a little planning and preparation, your Superbowl party
will be even more buzz-worthy than the Halftime Show and
multi-million dollar ads. Enjoy!
