Chili Cheese Potato Poppers



The Super Bowl is fast approaching, and everyone is throwing down some awesome bites and food in celebration of this epic sporting event. 

In fact, the food may be one of the biggest reasons to even watch....

Okay, maybe not for some.

I'm okay with throwing it out there though, I'm here for the food!

Yes ma'am.



I love all the dips, wings, apps and everything. I could seriously overload.

Recently I made these babies, which are a riff on the old standard potato skins.  Not to imply I am against cheese, bacon and sour cream on a potato skin, nah uh. 

But....

Chili cheese? These babies rock!


Big bonus, they're so much easier than the traditional ones. You can thrown these babies down anytime, don't just make them for a football game!

They heat up in a flash! And they're size makes them a one hand, pop it in your mouth, BOOM!
Hehe, hence....Poppers!


Ready?
