Big Game Snack Stadium

This is one of the most infamous created dreamed up by the folks at Holy  Taco. The snack stadium is truly majestic, both a culinary concoction and an architectural triumph. It contains everything from guacamole to Vienna sausages, and the “stands” of this stadium are, of course, constructed out of Twinkies and over a pound of bacon. If you’re entertaining a rowdy crowd, this is sure to be a show-stopper.

Chicken Fried Bacon

If you’ve ever wished that bacon could some how be even crispier than it usually is, maybe even breaded and fried (you know you’ve dreamed of it) then chicken fried bacon is the recipe for you. The crunchy breading makes the bacon even more substantial, all while subtly complimenting bacon’s perfect sweet saltiness. Setting out a plate of the crispy bacon is sure to make you the MVP of your Superbowl party.

Bacon Guacamole

For responsible chefs hoping to set out a green-yet-delicious alternative to everything fatty and deep-fried, guacamole is an old stand by. Smooth and sometimes a bit spicy, this beloved dip has been a loyal companion for corn chips for years. Bacon guacamole, on the other hands, is a way to elevate this old standby to truly otherworldly deliciousness.
