Super Bowl Sunday Means Super Eating

February 5th, 2010 · 13 Comments

With the Saints, “Who Dat!” and Colts in the Super Bowl this Sunday, many folks are getting their last minute super eating menus in order, so I thought it would be appropriate to share with you my Super Saints Super Bowl Super Eating Menu.

Geaux Saints!

In New Orleans, details indicate that grocery stores are seeing an invasion of shoppers who are putting together their Super Bowl parties, as David Blake tells from WWL Radio AM 870 in his report Super Bowl means super eating.

Chicken Enchiladas

And this time it will be made with a homemade enchilada sauce inspired by Estela Schnelle of the Weekly Bite.com.

And for your interactive viewing pleasure, a short video showing how I prepare my enchiladas. The original recipe is linked from the title above.

Her recipe can be found on NPR.com

So, you may be wondering what a Cajun like me is doing with all of this southwest and Mexican inspired food while rooting for the Saints in the Super Bowl?

Tradition, and luck!

Every Sunday for the past five months we have prepared and eaten either my taco dip and/or salsa and chips while watching the Saints on TV. So, in keeping with our sports rituals and superstitions, we are preparing the same food for Super Bowl Sunday. And wearing our same Saints apparel, jerseys, etc…

…oh…and a little Cajun Spice Blend will be thrown in from my special spice bag for each recipe, adding a little laginappe and Voodoo Gris-gris magic!

What are you making for a Super Bowl Sunday Super Eating Menu?
