Hormel Foods creates recipe for the big game. Arizona Chili Cheese Crisps

By Rocco Loosbrock

Recently I had a chance to chat with the folks of Hormel Foods, you know that huge meat company based in Minnesota and likely the best known company in the food industry. 


I asked them if they could prepare a special recipe for Sunday`s Super Bowl game.  They prepared a spicy tortilla dish inspired by the bold flavors of the Southwest called Arizona Chili Cheese Crisps.  They say that whether the guests are cheering for Arizona or Pittsburgh, everyone will be a fan of the cook.

4 CHI-CHI`S® 8" Soft Taco Flour Tortillas
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup CHI-CHI`S® Salsa, drained
1/4 cup CHI-CHI`S® Diced Green Chilies
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350F. In large skillet, over medium-high heat, heat 1 inch vegetable oil to 360F. Fry tortillas, one at a time, until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.* Place tortillas on large baking sheet. Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese, 2 tablespoons salsa, 1 tablespoon chilies and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. To eat, break into pieces. Makes 4 large appetizer servings. *Tortillas can be made ahead up to 8 hours. Cover loosely; let stand at room temperature.
