Hoffapenos, Great Superbowl Snack
Photo-A-Day #1395

I have said it before but I love Average Betty. I have finally made one of her recipes. I made the hot and delicious Hoffapenos! They are so delicious. Bacon goodness, cream cheese and the hotness of Jalapenos!

Prepping Hoffapenos

I made sure I had some rubber gloves while working with the jalapenos. I have cream cheese, jalapenos and bacon. Everything is great with bacon.

Adding my touches

I added my own touches to the recipe including adding Velveeta cheese and Red Robin seasoning.

Spliting the Jalapenos.

I split all the jalapenos and and removed the seeds. If you leave some seeds the hoffapeno is harder. I left some of them in a few of the jalapenos.

Sliced Jalapenos.

I cut up 5 jalapenos to get them ready to stuff with cream cheese and Velveeta.

12 Hoffapenos ready and waiting for the oven.

But Hoffapenos weren’t the only things that we made for the Superbowl. I made some chicken wings. Now I don’t always remember what I put in those but here is some idea of what was in the marinade. One set just had a mixture of REd Robin seasoning and cajun seasonings. It was marinated in Olive Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar. I also threw a shot of Jose Curevo. The wings were in the marinade overnight and turned a few times. Then before I put the wings in the oven I put some brown sugar on them. The second set of wings had a ton of different spices, the vinegar, olive oil and cuervo plus Franks Red Hot Buffalo wind sauce.

Also Allison made some delicious Turkey Chili. It was so good and had tons of beans and tomatos. 3lbs of Turkey too. So awesome.

Eva was with us till a little before the halftime show. She finally got tired enough to go down for the night. She loved all the action, food and attenion from Memere.

I gotta go to bed?

I’m loving the commercials for the superbowl and cannot wait to see G.I. Joe and the Transformers. This summer is going to be so much fun for me. I’m a child of the 80’s and that child inside me never left those 80s. I hope everyone had a great Superbowl Sunday and spent much time with friends and family and had great fun and food.

If someone talked over the good ads you can see them all on Hulu.com.

    Michelle,
    They were delicious albeit overstuffed. I put way too much cream cheese and the Velveeta was unnecessary in the end. However the Red Robin seasoning is a must in my opinion. Also If I could figure out how to cut bacon down the middle I wouldn’t have completely wrapped the jalapeno but would have made it more subtle like Average Betty’s. All in all they were great though.

    Great job on the food, thank you. Sorry I blocked your view of that commercial.

    Not a problem Dad, I was a little too intensely excited about it. I can’t beleive that Mom wants to watch the 1st movie. I’ll bring it down and we can watch it all together. I actually think you guys will like it. We had a nice time with everyone.

  5. Drew, I missed all the ads on SuperBowl as the pub we where we were, muted the sound for door prize draws, pools, etc. Yes, even during the half time show :(

    I’ve watched some on YouTube but wanted to see the rest – so I clicked on your link to HULU – and… it’s not availabe in Canada :(

    Your bacon wrapped jalapenos looked wonderful – I might try them sometime!

    Heather, sorry about the hulu link but yeah it is not available outside the U.S. For me the Ads are the best part, most of the time they are funny, sometimes they are not but I do enjoy them most of all.

    ciara,
    I know exactly how tough it is but you are doing something about it. Good luck on the soda thing I know you can do it.

    Ben! How I love to hear the story and see the photos of my recipe in action! So glad you tried the poppers and I love, love that you did a little “food hacking” of your own.

    Wings, chili and Hoffapenos – sounds like a winner to me. And Eva is so adorable :)

    Cheers,
    Betty

    Hey Betty,
    I had a great time with those hoffapenos. They were so tasty and fun to make. I will certainly make them again. I won’t use the Velveeta again but Red Robin seasoning is the best. I will certainly be making some more of your recipes as they are fantastic.

  11. […] to wings and chili, he cooked up a batch of Hoffapenos! Ben added some of his own touches which he documents on his blog and as far as Betty is concerned… […]
