Taco Bowl Party Bar

DSC_0571

So the Super Bowl……I am so excited! I mean really excited! But not for actually watching the game.  As usual I’m not really sure what teams are playing, but I am super excited since I love the food at Super Bowl parties. I am always the guy at the party eating the food while everyone is watching the game.

This is a great meal for your Super Bowl Party. When I think of a party with food I always think about Mexican food. It is just so fun and full of flavor!

This recipe combines some of my old favorites, guacamole and pico de gallo and some new ones. I decided that this meal would be best served in an edible taco bowl because it allows you to eat on the go, as you are watching the game. I really love the Tequila Lime marinade because it tenderizes the meat while packing in a bunch of flavor.

I want to thank Grand and Essex for sponsoring all the meat for this blog post. Grand and Essex is located in Bergenfield, New Jersey which is an amazing kosher supermarket.  I actually did my first cooking demo there over a year ago and it was such a successful event.   I was and will always be so grateful that they took a chance and let me have my first cooking demo there.   

Grand and Essex has the best meat. I love their bakery especially their apricot linzer tarts and Chinese drop cookies.  I could eat those things all week but they are usually gone before Havdalah!  Also, they have hands down the best skirt steak in all of Bergen County. I usually find skirt steak to be way too salty but not their’s. They actually salt their own meat and it isn’t overly salty at all.
