7 Super Bowl Taco Recipes
1. Beef and Chorizo Parrillada Tacos
Made with fresh, tender Angus beef skirt steak, and marinated in beer and spices. The vegetables add sweet, fresh flavors and the chorizo adds a little pungent spice to the mix. Enjoy!
2. Tacos al Pastor
Tacos al pastor are a blend of pork, spices, chiles, vinegar, pineapple, onion, cilantro, lime and hot salsa on a smaller than normal corn tortilla. The “taquerías” in Mexico cook the meat on a vertical spit called a trompo, or literally, a spinning top. But with my recipe, you can make these delicious tacos at home.
3. Barbacoa Tacos
If there’s such a thing as Mexican soul food, for me, beef barbacoa is it. This recipe shows you how to make it in the pressure cooker or the slow cooker.
4. Chicken and Pork Tinga
This particular recipe includes shredded chicken and pork mix with a tangy blend of citrus, tomatoes, chile, and spice.
5. Pork Loin in Black Sauce tacos
Succulent pork loin pieces cooked to perfection in a black sauce made with chile negro (black pepper, a kind of smoky dry pepper, not black peppercorns), tomatillos, vinegar and spices.
6. Chorizo With Roasted Onion and Corn
These chorizo tacos with grilled onions and corn are like an explosion in the mouth. Serve with a creamy, avocado salsa and make your family beg for more.
7. Shrimp in Beer Sauce Tacos
Beer, shrimp, tomatoes, garlic, herbs and spices. Need I say more?
Of course, you can’t serve tacos without salsa, so here are a few ideas:

Super Bowl 2020 recipes 7 healthier dip recipes for game day — or any day
Whether you're planning a party or getting into the whole snack boards for dinner thing, you've got to have some dip. Sure, you could just open a container of store-bought sour cream and onion dip and call it a day, but when you're ready to up your dip game, try one of these seven fresh dip ideas from chefs and food bloggers, including Giada De Laurentiis, Molly Yeh, Martha Stewart and chef Ariel Fox of New York's Dos Caminos.
Their recipes, including an Italian spin on hummus, creamy yogurt queso and bean salads that do double duty as dips, are not only more creative than standard dip — they're healthier too!
Yogurt Queso with Cilantro Cream
"Imagine sitting around a bonfire but instead of a fire in the middle it’s a hot tub of queso — that would be the life," says blogger and TV host Molly Yeh. "Now imagine that the queso is just slightly healthier, almost enough so that you could maybe actually eat a whole hot tub of it by yourself and you don’t actually need to share it with your friends. That’s yogurt queso!" Yeh's yogurt queso creation is featured in her yogurt-themed book, "Short Stack Editions Volume 32: Yogurt", and on her blog, My Name is Yeh. In this recipe, yogurt is used in both the warm queso dip and the cool cilantro cream that's dolloped on top of the queso, offering a nice flavor, temperature and texture contrast — you could also serve the queso or the cilantro cream on their own. "This is really a queso-inspired yogurty cheesy dip, but it's tasty and a little tangy from the yogurt and I love eating it with the extremely thick and salty and sometimes even chewy potato chips," Yeh adds.
