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