Superbowl Recipe: Frito Pie & Paloma
Superbowl Sunday is upon us, but this Sunday’s gameday means more than just football rivalry and clever commercials. Americans spend more than $50 million on food for the big game.
The solution? Fox Bro’s Bar-B-Q Frito Pie and Victory Sandwich Bar’s Paloma to wash it down. Chili is a cost-friendly recipe and easy to feed a crowd, and by eating out of Frito’s bags, there’s no clean-up required. Assuming you have the staples on-hand, here’s a breakdown of what you’ll need at the store.
- 1 pound brisket
- 2 onions
- 3 jalepenos
- 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
- 1 can tomato paste (you won’t use it all)
- 1 can chipoltes in adobe sauce (you won’t use it all)
- 1 small bag of corn flour (in the ethnic food aisle)
- 16 6 ounce bags of Fritos (buy a multipack)
- 16 bottles of grapefruit soda (we used Izze)
- 1 bottle reposada tequila
- 20 fresh limes
Settle in to watch the game while holding your Frito Pie in one hand and a bottle of spiked soda in the other. Below are the recipes.
