Superbowl XLVI -a game where we all got together to cheer
against the Patriots for the Giants.
I dream of the day when an NFL team plays in a stadium named after its vegan sponsor, but until then we can create, and eat, the Chicago Soydairy Field: a “stadium” made with Dandies rice crispy treats, “fans” of tortilla chips, a “field” of Teese Nacho Sauce, salsa, & guacamole (and black bean dip if your field is large enough), and pretzel rod “goal posts.”
- 1 bag of Dandies marshmallows*
- 3 tablespoons margarine*
- 6 cups brown rice cereal*
- 1-2 containers of Teese Nacho sauce (heated when served)
- guacamole (I mashed 2 avocados with a minced garlic clove and stirred in finely chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt and chopped tomato)
- salsa (I just used salsa from a jar, but made it fancy by putting cilantro on top)
- Black bean dip
- Two colors of Tortilla chips
- pretzel rods
*If you are going all out and have enough people to eat two batches of rice crispy treats, double this.
You will also need:
- a huge platter or table space (I used a cookie sheet and only had room for 3 dips, but I had to carry it)
- 3-4 rectangular dishes or a dish with dividers (I used mini bread loaf pans)
For the rice crispies, I just used the basic Kellogg’s Rice Krispy Treat recipe: melt margarine, melt in marshmallows (stirring the whole time), remove from heat, stir in cereal, spread in a 9×13 pan covered in cooking spray, cool and slice.
And the rest is pretty self-explanatory. Build a wall with your rice crispy treats, put the 3-4 dishes in the middle and surround with chips. To make the goal posts, break off pretzel rods to your desired size and use 3 toothpicks (per goal post) to hold pretzels together.
