Who’s ready for the KC Chiefs to win the Super Bowl again? I know I am. While this year’s Super Bowl Sunday will be short of large gatherings at bars and each others homes, we can still enjoy the game at home with GOOD food. I mean that’s my favorite part of watching the game, eating hot wings and pizza.
Order in the Wings
I’ve recently discovered a hidden gem in Atlanta, The Local. Yes, I know I’m late and everyone knows about this place, but I finally went and I gotta say those wings HIT. I mean they were NOT stingy on the cheese for the cheese fries, and those buffalo lemon pepper wings? To die for!
Not close to the city? Try Clay’s Sport’s Cafe (get the Buffalo Lemon Pepper wings, I’m serious), Taco Mac, or Cafe Bombay (their tandoori chicken wings are flamin’).
Can’t decide between Pizza and Wings? Order Both!
For you buffalo chicken lovers (aka ME), this one is for you! Firepit Pizza Tavern in Grant Park lets you build your own pizza or off the menu. I ordered the buffalo chicken pizza (buffalo chicken, mozzarella, and onions on a white sauce) and paired it with ranch- SO GOOD.
What’s even better? Firepit has a specialty Big Game package offered exclusively for Super Bowl Sunday. This package serve 4-6 people and includes 30 wings, 2 Cheese Pizzas, and 2 orders of Parmesan Bites all for just $70! Additional toppings are available, but you’ll have to call in for deets.
Try My Spicy Loaded Nachos Recipe
1/2 cup pickled jalapeño, depends on how spicy you like your salsa
1 bag corn tortilla chips
1 can black or pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 jar of spicy salsa (seriously, an extra spicy store bought jar salsa will do)
1 8oz tub sour cream, for topping
1 cup chopped cilantro, for topping
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
2 cups of shredded chicken
Turn oven on broil. Place aluminum foil on a large baking tray. Spread tortilla chips on the tray (as much that can fit on the tray). Evenly layer over beans, chicken, salsa, cheese, and jalapeños. Broil for 3-5 minutes, until cheese is melted and chips are slightly brown (not burned). Turn off oven and serve in a platter. Top with dollops of sour cream and fresh cilantro.
You can use Mild Cheddar, Colby Jack, Monterrey, or Quesadilla cheese as a substitute. Just season the cheese with 1/2 tsp of paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, pepper, and oregano. If you do not have pickled jalapeño, you can use fresh jalapeño. If there are vegetarians being served, then do not add the chicken. The chicken could be any left over chicken or a rotisserie chicken. If you are trying to eat a healthier version of this appetizer, then use less cheese and substitute tortilla chips with gluten free chips or even sweet potato chips.
I hope you all found this post super helpful for your Super Bowl Sunday!
Until next time,

S.N, GO CHIEFS!
