Super Creative Super Bowl Food with Hatfield Quality Meats

Guys – Get excited! At the end of this post there is an AWESOME giveaway contest courtesy of Hatfield Quality Meats! Make sure to read all the way through! 
As most of you know, I live in New England…. Boston to be specific. As most of you also know, this means we still have a lot invested in the one remaining game of the season. It’s kind of a  big game…in case you hadn’t heard.

But if truth be told, the real draw of the Big Game for me is the food!!! I’m guessing none of you are surprised by that.  This isn’t a time to get lazy with your recipes. Ordering takeout wings and pizza, sure, there is a time for that. But THIS is the time to pull out those crazy recipes and have fun with your food! So when Hatfield Quality Meats challenged me to make a fun, SIMPLE, family friendly Big Game recipe, I knew I had to accept the challenge.

I loved looking through Hatfield Quality Meats’ line of products to pick something out that would spark my cooking creativity, and the Texas Smokehouse Style Loin Filet did it! I loved the idea of using a smoky seasoned pork roast, and mixing it with the tangy zest of a Cuban Ropa Vieja, and then putting it together with the Mexican flavor of a tostada. 
So slow cooker Smokey Cuban Pork Tostadas were born!The best part is this is recipe, is that it is made in the crockpot, so it is fast and easy! You can also prep it ahead of your party, and set up a “make-your-own” bar, so people can customize theirs however they want! Ryan took the simple strategy of the Ropa Vieja and melted cheese on tortilla chips. My tostada was loaded with black bean puree, pork, guacamole and jalapenos. They were both amazing!

  1. Not the most traditional of Half-Time snacks, but a nice alternative I like to serve is a platter of fruit, like Floridian Strawberries with either a Greek yogurt dip or Nutella (allergy restrictive), you don’t be surprised how clean the plate is as fans like an alternative to nachos and chili.

  2. Wow,
    Looks yummy! I am tempted to make Renee’s version, loaded with black bean paste, jalapeños and guac. Then add Ryan’s cheese suggestion. Oh my, the calories!! But really, when I do cook it needs to be easy and I believe Renee’s recipe will fit the bill.

  3. This looks delicious! We love Mexican food…and anything that can be made with a crockpot, even better!

    I’ve been craving a sandwich my husband makes. He calls it a “Slamin’ BLT”- bacon, lettuce, tomato with a fried egg! Eggs should never be left only to breakfast. Perhaps I can convince him to make that for Super Bowl Sunday…

  4. I usually like to make Nachos. So I am thinking of taking this recipe for the meat base of my nachos. I think they will be fabulous.

  5. This dish looks amazing! What a fantastic add on item for Super Bowl Sunday. Thank you for posting this as I was looking for something to make this weekend. Love your food posts! More please….


      • It is! We first tried this at a local restaurant, but so easy to make at home. We bake Jewel yams and stuff them with either carne asada or pork tenderloin (done in the slow cooker), black beans, cheese, avocado, sour cream and salsa….yum…I can’t wait! (also really healthy if you go easy on the cheese & sour cream)

  6. We are going to do all finger foods.. wings, mozz sticks, cheese and crackers, meatballs and more!

  7.’s tough. I saw a really awesome recipe for pizza stuffed peppers. And, I think it goes without saying there will be chips, dips and guacamole. I’m guessing we’ll also do some smoked sausages. 🙂

  8. Actually use Hatfield in the slow cooker regularly. So easy to make fulfilling meals. Pulled pork nachos are definitely a favorite.

  10. The kids and I made pizza for the big game, my wife had to work…Or as she said “got to work!” She’s not a big football fan. She made it home in time to see the end and have a milkshake!

  11. We had 3 varieties of chicken wings (Honey bbq, General Tso’s and Buffalo) with celery, carrots and green onions along with ranch or blue cheese dressing .

  12. I live in New England, too, so I was quite happy with the outcome of the “Big Game.” That day, though, I was home alone, so I didn’t go crazy with finger foods. My big snack was yogurt with honey and granola.

  13. I am making wonderful Lobster Egg Rolls for the Big Game this year: Wrap is a crisp egg, cold water and salt, mix in all-purpose flour. Inside: Egg, shredded cabbage & carrots, salt, sugar, soy sauce and sesame oil, scallions mayo, pepper, touch of garlic salt. Serve with Kikkoman suace and Hot Chinese mustard.
