If you are getting ready for a Super Bowl party, I’ve got some styling, kickin’ tapas ideas for you! Just click on the picture for the recipe…they are all pretty easy (with the exception of the tortillas, which require a bit of derring-do, but are well worth it). They are also portable! Have a great Game Day…I’ll be back with more ideas soon!

¡Ole! ¡Fantástico!

    Great tapas ideas, especially the mussels which have me drooling.

      Oh please, please, PLEASE try that mussel recipe…there is nothing as good. NOTHING. It is on my mom’s top five list, and she hates mussels!

    Superbowl reminds me of drinking too much Patron Tequila and smoking cigarettes outside in a garage – a friend took me to a big Superbowl party in Georgia many years ago. I think, to be honest, I’d much rather eat your tapas 😉

      Sounds like ou had an authentic Super Bowl experience, especially if you smoked during the game and went inside to watch the commercials

    What time should I arrive? It will be quite the trip, driving from Ottawa. But I have 3 – 4 days! These look wonderful and oh, so sophisticated. I shun making appetizers because I don’t have the patience. But I love eating ’em!

      Do try them! We gridiron atheists (I only believe in proper football = soccer) need something to do while everyone else is glued to the flat screen….

        Ah.. woman after my own heart!! and I want to say they will be Glued Flat to the Screen!! The least we can do is feed them! c
