The Boulevard Senior Living – Wentzville Cheer on the Teams While Enjoying Favorite Super Bowl Snacks

Category: Senior Living

Author: Erik Peterson, Culinary Director

It all started on January 15, 1967, when the Kansas City Chiefs from the American Football League played the Green Bay Packers from the National Football League. Until this point, the two leagues were separated and considered rivals. They competed for fans and players and didn’t care for each other much. In 1966, the decision was made to merge by 1970, and in 1967 the first Super Bowl was played. It wasn’t until after the game that Chiefs owner, Lamar Hunt, came up with the term “Super Bowl.”

With the invention of the wooden-sided station wagon in 1930 came along a rear folding tailgate. Fans drove the station wagon to college football games, using the tailgate as a picnic table of sorts, and tailgating was born. Once portable grills and coolers were invented in the 1950s, tailgating took on a whole new vibe. Cold beer and ribs replaced sandwiches and red wine. Then, in the 1970s, the car culture took hold and stadiums were relocated out of inner cities to the suburbs where there was ample parking, and the tailgating experience that we know today was cemented into our culture.

In honor of Super Bowl LVII, the culinary team here at The Boulevard Senior Living – Wentzville will be celebrating the big day with toasted ravioli, Buffalo chicken dip, chicken fingers, fries, and mozzarella sticks. As Culinary Director I’ve prepared a lot of different items, but my favorite Super Bowl snacks is Buffalo chicken dip. It was my grandparents’ favorite dip too!

Following is my Buffalo chicken dip recipe: 1 tablespoon unsalted butter; 2 teaspoons garlic (minced); 2 cups chicken (cooked, shredded); ½ cup Frank’s Original Red Hot Sauce; 8 ounces

cream cheese (block, softened); ½ cup sour cream; ½ cup white cheddar cheese (freshly shredded); ¼ cup American cheddar (freshly shredded); ¼ cup blue cheese (crumbled, optional to serve); 2 teaspoons green onions (sliced, or chives); add celery sticks, carrot sticks, tortilla chips, crusty bread pieces, or potato chips, for serving.
