What’s your favorite Super Bowl recipe or snack?

This is just an excuse for me to talk about Popeyes.

The Super Bowl is less than a week away, and that means it’s about time to figure out your party plans. Maybe you’re hosting, maybe you’re headed to a friend’s place. And maybe you just want to sit at home and watch the game with your significant other (or by yourself) in the peace and comfort of your own home.

Whatever the case, food will be necessary. Whatever part of the country you’re in, food will be a necessity. If you’re on the west coast, maybe you do a late breakfast and then an early dinner with the game. Or, maybe you just choose to munch on snacks and eat dinner after the game. For those of us on the east coast, it’s right during dinner time, so food is a must.

Here at the SB Nation office in Washington, DC, we’ll be watching the game and doing plenty of work around it. I’ll be focused on the gambling aspects of the big game, and any 49ers-related angles. But what will we be eating you ask? (My guess is not many will actually ask) We’re figuring out what to order, but if it follows SB Nation tradition, it will be Popeyes. They mess up the order every year, but Popeyes remains a go-to meal for football watching. In fact, if they didn’t mess up the order, I’d assume something is up.

What’s your choice of food, be it a bigger meal or a snack? If you’ve got a recipe for something, whatever it might be, drop it in the comments. I’ll go ahead and get started by offering up a great salsa recipe we like to cook at home. This will serve a good sized crowd, but feel free to double it if you want to make a whole bunch of salsa.

14 oz can diced tomatoes
10 oz can rotel (or generic can of combined diced tomatoes and green chilies)
½ small onion
1 clove garlic, smashed
1 jalapeno
1 tsp honey
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp cumin
Handful of cilantro
Juice of 1 lime

Drain water from tomatoes/rotel. Put food in processor and pulse to combine, about 30 sec.
