Buffalo Chicken Blue Cheese Nachos


We’re getting into the Superbowl countdown!

We’re down to 4 teams, people, and though Superbowl Sunday is the big game day, this upcoming weekend promises two huge games from 4 incredible teams and 3 awesome quarterbacks (I’ll leave it up to you to guess which QB I don’t include).

These intense playoff games deserve game day food just as much as the big game does.

Thinking about game day favorites, I kept coming to nachos and buffalo chicken wings.

Why not bring the two together???

So, I bring you super easy, super delicious buffalo chicken blue cheese nachos.

What says game day food more than buffalo and blue cheese?

Really easy recipe, that keeps you out of the kitchen and on the couch with your friends cheering on your team.

You will need:

  • Pita bread (these are hefty nachos and tortilla chips just aren’t going to hold up)
  • a rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • your favorite buffalo sauce
  • blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup milk

Get started by preheating the oven to 350.

Cut your pita bread rounds into quarters and lay them out on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake for about 10 minutes.


Place them in a 9×13 baking dish when they’re crispy and warm.


Meanwhile, take your shredded chicken and your buffalo sauce and mix them in a bowl.


Pile the buffalo chicken high on top of your pita nachos.


Now, in a small saucepan, pour in the milk and as much crumbled blue cheese as you like (reserving some to top this off with).

Heat over low heat, stirring, until the blue cheese melts.


Take this beautiful blue cheese sauce


And pour it over your nachos. Pop in the 350 oven for 10 minutes, just to warm everything up.


Sprinkle with some more blue cheese. Because, you know, why not?


Your favorite bar food has just been taken to a whole new level.

Jalapeno Poppers



The holidays can be hectic. So many people to see, so many presents to wrap, so many places to go.

But once the holidays are over, there comes that wonderful time when it’s too cold to go out and, besides, why go out when the game’s on?

When it’s football Sunday, you need something cheesy, warm and a little spicy to munch on while your team charges to the end zone.

Jalapeno poppers are a bar food favorite. The breaded and fried crust, the spicy pepper, the cool and creamy cream cheese. It’s the layers and the different notes that make poppers so craveable. Plus, they accompany a beer nicely.

Frying is messy. And it’s not the healthiest preparation. So, we’re going to simplify and healthify these poppers by baking them.

For this dish you will need:

  • Jalapenos, halved and seeded
  • 8 oz package of cream cheese at room temp.
  • A cup of mexican cheese

Start by preheating the oven to 350 and covering a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

Half and seed your jalapenos. 


In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and the cheese.


Take your mixture


And, with a tablespoon, fill each jalapeno half


Until they are all filled and lined up on your cookie sheet.


Bake for about 20 minutes.


And there you have a somewhat healthier version of your favorite bar snack for your game day.
