Having a Superbowl Party?

I bet some of you out there are having a Superbowl party...or at least are watching it at home with your family.  If you are, I've got a couple of great recipes for you.


  • 2 pkgs. "JIFFY" Corn Muffin Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can (12 oz.) cream style corn
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375°, grease muffin pans or use paper liners.
Mix all ingredients together. Pour into prepared muffin pans, filling about 1/2 full. Bake 22-28 minutes. Let cool before removing from pan.
I will be making these muffins to go along with a big pot of chili.  These are the best corn muffins I've ever had!

My favorite Salsa;  This recipe came from my good friend Eva who is from Mexico.


  1. 1
    Place the whole tomatoes in a saucepan with the peppers; cover with water and bring to a boil.

  2. 2
    Simmer gently until the tomatoes are fairly soft but not falling apart - about 5 minutes.

  3. 3
    Drain, but reserve 1/3 cup of the cooking liquid.

  4. 4
    Mix the bouillon into the 1/3 cup reserved cooking liquid and pour into the jar of a blender.

  5. 5
    Add garlic; blend until the garlic is finely dispersed throughout the liquid.

  6. 6
    Add the tomatoes and peppers to the blender jar, and blend for a few seconds. Do not over blend. It should have a rough texture.

  7. 7
    Heat the olive oil in the bottom of a sauce pan.

  8. 8
    Add the chopped onion and saute a couple of minutes.

  9. 9
    Add the sauce from the blender.

  10. 10
    Cook on high heat, stirring from time to time scraping the bottom of the pan until the sauce is reduced - about 6 - 8 minutes.
