Super Bowl XLIV – Snack Ideas

The 2010 Super Bowl will be on February 7th.  Am I excited about it?  Not so much, but I am excited for the snacks and the commercials!  Super Bowl Sunday = fun snacks!  I have a handful that I love to make, including Buffalo Chicken Dip, Fruit Skewers with Dip, Shrimp Cocktail & Nachos.  After writing my Organicville review the other day, Lisa contacted me with some recipes for Lentil Chile & Salsa Dip.  I can’t wait to share these with you!  The Lentil Chile would be good over the nachos in place of the chili I normally use.   The following recipes both use Organicville Salsa.  Here are some quick facts about the salsa:
