Superbowl Sunday Menu

Since my husband is a complete Steeler fan, our job this year for the neighborhood, is to throw the Superbowl Shindig!  I don't want it to be difficult for anybody to make lots of stuff since it is on a Sunday night and all of the kids have school the next day but......we have to celebrate!  So I'm planning on keeping it simple.

Mini Meatball Sandwiches
Stuffed Mushrooms
Baked Taquitos with Salsa 
Chips
Buffalo Chicken Dip--Recipe from comment section on allrecipes.com
Great dip for football season! I used Texas Pete Buffalo Style Chicken Wing Sauce, 1/3 less-fat cream cheese (aka Neufchatel), and 1 lb. of fresh chicken that was boiled for 20 minutes (or until done) and then shredded. However, to avoid the strange "orange sherbert" color of the dip, I layered the ingredients in a 8"x11" baking dish as follows: Mix together the softened cream cheese and ranch dressing and spread evenly in the bottom of the dish. Then mix together the shredded chicken and wing sauce (about 2/3 bottle)and layer on top of the cream cheese mixture. Sprinkle just a small amount of shredded cheese (I used Colby/Jack) over the top. Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes or until dip is heated through and cheese is melted. I just think people tend to shy away from the dip when it's all mixed together because of the strange color. It's more recognizable (retains a brighter red color) when it's layered and gets gobbled up faster!

If anyone wants to bring something, that's okay but if not.....we'll have plenty.
