Are you ready for some football food?
Today, I’m sharing with you some of my favorite all-time party foods, plus a brand new recipe. It’s a little amuse bouche, as the French would say. A bite-sized hors d’oeuvre that isn’t what it seems.But it will amuse your tastebuds just the same.
Today’s recipe comes courtesy of my foodie friend, Stephen, who sent me a text a few weeks ago about this amazingly easy but delicious recipe. Well, before I knew it, he was sending me photos too, and telling me I had to feature it on the blog.
With Super Bowl Sunday just around the corner, this seemed like the perfect time to share the recipe, also known as Stephen’s Garlic in a Basket.
Well, now I’ve ruined the surprise. Oh, wait, I guess the photo did that!
Here’s all you’ll need:
- head of garlic, separated and peeled
- olive oil
- Tostitos Scoops tortilla chips
- Pepper Jack cheese
Step 1: Toss garlic in olive oil and season with salt. Roast at 350 degrees until the garlic cloves are nice and brown and really soft. Garlic turns sweet when you roast it.
Step 2: Arrange Tostitos Scoops chips in a baking dish. Put a garlic clove in each chip.
Step 3: Add a small amount of your favorite salsa. Top with shredded cheese.
Step 4: Broil until cheese is melted. Serve.

How about some homemade guacamole to pair with those tortilla chips? Be sure to buy extra avocados so you can freeze guacamole for your next party.
Speaking of tortilla chips, they also go well with dip. But not just any dip — hot mustard greens and artichoke dip.
