Football foods?

Sundays are big football days in our house. I would like some ideas for football foods. I used to make a big plate of nachos or a pot of chili with cheese and corn chips. Being that I am low carb now, I have avoided making any football foods for about three months now. Are there any ideas that aren't just veggies and dip? Because while that is good, it doesn't really fill us up.

What about jalapeno poppers...they are delicious.
You can still have chili, just lc it. For corn chips, make the cheese crisps (crackers)
A good soup from one of the many recipes posted.
If you want something sweet, there are plenty of LC recipes for cookies, candy, pies, cheesecakes, and a lot of them take very little time. HTH

How do you make buffalo chicken dip?? THat sounds amazing! How do you make jalapeno poppers? Cut jalapenos open and stuff with cheese? I'm starting to get excited now...I have made low carb chili before, omitted the beans. It was ok, but I was looking for something a little more munchy kind of stuff. I have made those cheese crackers before and eat them so quickly They are yummy.

Pepperoni Nachos are a great substitute for regular nachos.

ham and cheese roll ups are good football foods too as well as hot dogs and burgers...you can wrap the hot dogs in lc flatbreads or make cheese wraps

I use low carb pita bread for burgers or low carb tortillas

I know, but I avoid them. I don't understand how to convert "net carbs" so I just eat between 20-30 carbs daily, and use what the carb count says they are. I think Frankenfoods made me question net carbs too much.

Bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers are the most asked-for item I've ever made! EVERYONE loves them, even my stepmother who generally isn't a fan of really spicy stuff - she makes sure she gets her fair share of them!

Here is a thread all about them:

Try this Sticky too - tons of great ideas:

Another way to make poppers is I boil the jalpeno first then,
cut in half
then make the cheese with cream cheese and crumbled bacon mixed up . Spoon into the pepper shells,top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake at 350 for about 10 mins. This is just another way.

I also make appetizers like Nigels says Ham slices stuffed with cheese. Take it a little further and take your ham slices , cream cheese, avocado ( or red pepper slices or cucumber slices) then roll up and slice into slices. It makes them look pretty.

Taco soup, Chili, Cheddar poppers, hot wings, are all good.

Green bean bundles( take fresh green beans and pop in micro for a minute...remove, wrap in bacon and roast in pan in 350 oven until bacon is brown and crispy.)

We make our poppers just a little bit different. I like to add a piece of Sun dried tomato in oil to the cheese before wrapping.

The poppers sound good. My son is making some tonight but I will have to wait to try your due to not having any sun dried toms. Drats!

Football foods for us are usually finger foods. Shrimp cocktail, buffalo wings w/ blue cheese, assorted olives, and cream cheese stuffed celery...etc..

On Super Bowl Sunday, we'll have a huge group at our house so I'll be making a lot more food. Most, if not all of my food will be low to moderate carb even though some of our guests don't follow lc. I'll put out are usual finger food for the pre-game and at half-time I'll bring out a couple of full meal dishes... Linda Sue's Spinach Lasagna and Primal Chili from Marks Daily Apple (recipe below). I also came across a recipe for roasted chickpeas on Food Network that I thought sounded good so I'll be making that to as an all night munchie..

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas (5 Ingredient Fix)
2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
Kosher salt
Directions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Rinse and drain the chickpeas and dry by rolling them around in a kitchen towel. Combine the oil, paprika cumin, cayenne and salt in a large bowl. Add chickpeas and toss to coat evenly. Transfer the chickpeas to a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread them out in a single layer. Bake until golden and crispy, 25 to 35 minutes, shaking the tray to toss after 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and transfer the chickpeas to a serving bowl

WINTER CHILI FOR A CHILLY WINTER (Mark's Daily Apple)
Primal Chili Recipe:
Ingredients:

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 onions, diced
3 pasilla peppers, seeded and diced
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
3 pounds beef chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons ground coriander
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 cinnamon stick
2 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, crushed
1 dark beer, such as a porter or imperial stout
2-4 tablespoons canned chipotle chile, diced
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Grated queso fresco, for garnish
Cilantro leaves, for garnish
Lime wedges, for garnish

Method:
Heat a large heavy bottomed pot over medium heat; add 3 tablespoons olive oil, the onions, pasilla peppers, and red pepper. Cook until everything is soft and the onions are beginning to caramelize, about 10 minutes.

Pat the beef dry and season it with salt and pepper. Add it to the pot and cook, stirring frequently, until it has browned on all sides, about 10 minutes.

Add oregano, paprika, coriander, cumin, chili powder, garlic, cinnamon stick, tomatoes, beer and chipotle (add as little as one teaspoon to the whole can depending on how hot you’d like your chili).

Bring the pot to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the meat and shred it with a fork.

Return it to the pot, and cook for another 10 minutes, uncovered, to thicken. Right before you are ready to serve add the red wine vinegar to the pot and stir. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve with the queso fresco, cilantro, and lime for garnish.

Serves 6-8.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that the recipe isn’t strictly Primal. The beer and cheese in particular probably leap out at you. If you want to stay pure, nix those items, using plain water as needed instead of beer. But a bottle of good dark beer is worth the tiny sacrifice (especially if it means the perfect pot of chili), in my experience, and the cheese is in such small amounts.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the FB season!!!!

Michelle

Not the typical baked popper, but take pickled whole jalapenos, split in half lengthwise and pat dry then fill with pre-made pimento cheese or the philly chive and onion or garden veggie cream cheese.
Very quick and easy and no baking required
Oh wear plastic gloves for this. Just advice lol.

No... even that isn't always enough lol. Trust me
Adding: I found the pickled ones (maybe because of the liquid?) are even more difficult to get off your skin than fresh ones lol.

I just made the wing dip over the weekend and it was so good. I've made it before but it had been a while. Yummo. I shredded the chicken in my food processor first. Served it with celery.

Definitely chili.

Hoagie salad (dice up tomatoes, several deli meats and cheeses, onion if you like it, mayo, italian seasonings. Let it hang in the fridge for a while so the flavors meld together and then serve w/ iceberg lettuce (one of the few times I do iceberg). I'm going from memory here. There was a recipe posted here once before for this. Haven't made it in a while but yum for football season.

Crab dip
