I have no list of Superbowl snacks to share. No compilation of dips and chips and fried stuff with cheese.
Truth be told, as much as I LOVE college football, I’ve never been as interested in the NFL. It’s just not as much fun as college ball!
That being said, we do usually watch the Superbowl.
And you definitely need good food during the game.
My family got here last night to spend the weekend visiting. But since they’ll be heading back Sunday afternoon, we won’t get to watch the game with them.
So a good Friday night dinner was necessary!
Thanks to Foodbuzz and the Tastemaker program, I received some Pace Picante salsa to use to make a dish good enough to serve during the big game.
Everyone loved it!
And the best part is that it’s pretty healthy – so if you have this for your main meal on Superbowl Sunday, you’ll still have some room for your favorite game time snacks and treats.
Pace Yourself Enchilada Casserole
- 3 scallions, sliced
- 1.5 cups red lentils
- 2 cups kale, chopped
- 2 cups broth
- 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- 1/2 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp smoked (or regular) paprika
- 28 oz. green enchilada sauce
- 1 jar (8 oz) Pace Picante sauce
- 16 corn tortillas
- 1 cup queso fresco
In large skillet, saute scallions until tender and add lentils and broth.
Bring to a boil and let cook 10 minutes.
Chop kale into bite size pieces.
Add kale, 1 cup of enchilada sauce, spices, and Pace Picante to the lentil mixture.
Let lentil mixture cook 10-15 minutes more until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the lentils and kale are tender.
Preheat oven to 375 and cut tortillas into 4ths.
Pour 1/2 cup of Enchilada Sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish and top with a third of the tortillas.
Put 1/2 of lentil mixture on top of tortillas and repeat (tortillas, lentils).
Once the last of the lentil mixture is layered, top with the last third of the tortillas and pour on 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce.
Top with cheese and bake 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and edges are bubbling.
Cut into 8 pieces and serve.
We actually had ours with a fried egg on TOP – and it. was. incredible. But I ate it too fast to get a picture with the egg ; )
Whatever you’re making for the big game, enjoy it!
I know I’ll be enjoying these leftovers.
