Football Food

I don't know which I like best - watching football or making (and eating) football-watching food. Luckily, I don't have to choose. I get to do both! (We even rigged up a projection screen and watched the Saints beat the 49ers big time in a big fashion.)

Here are two new recipes I tried that were both keepers. The Crawfish Dip was the hands-down favorite though!

Crawfish Dip

2 lbs. crawfish tails, drained
3 8 oz. blocks cream cheese, softened
1 bunch green onions
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Tony Chachere's to taste (about 1 1/2 tsp.)
Tabasco to taste

Saute green onions in butter over medium heat. Once the onions are soft (about 4 min.) add the cream cheese. After cream cheese is melted, add crawfish and spices. Serve with Frito's Scoops.

Warm Feta Spread

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add one diced red bell pepper and two sliced garlic cloves. Cook until soft, 2 to 3 min. Break 1 lb feta into a serving bowl. Top with the warm pepper mixture. Serve with sliced cucumbers and pita chips.
(I am using what was left of this spread and toasting it on a baguette to eat with supper tonight.)
