Super Bowl Snacks to the XLIV

Between betting the spread, the over on the game, and the under on the age of The Who's random replacement bassist, you've got enough going on without having to think about what to serve at your Bowl bash. That's why we've recruited three Big D culinary honchos to share foolproof snack and booze recipes so simple yet satisfying, you'll become a real Folk hero.

Wild Boar Bacon Wrapped FigsFrom Tim Love, Lonesome Dove Western Bistro/The Love Shack DFW's favorite Top Chef judge's Southwestern gut-bullets are incredibly accommodating: you're free to sub in applewood smoked bacon for the boar, and dates for the figs, assuming you can find anyone who'd want to go out with a fig. Love loves to love you, baby, with this tasty recipe

Cowboy Chow Sloppy JoesFrom Jason Boso, Twisted Root Burger Co./Cowboy Chow The Deep Ellum burger king's fat-tastic Sloppy Joe formula includes directions on how to braise brisket in your beer of choice: Abita or Dixie for serious Saints fans, or, for Indy loyalists...well, you'll probably just have to steal some National Bohemian from Baltimore. Jim Nantz would cream his pants for these Joes! Learn to make them by clicking this.

Taco Mundo SangriaFrom Carolina Galvan-Rodriguez, Taco Mundo/Carolina's Mexican Cuisine Pour in ample amounts of light rum and delicious budget Burgundy and you're damn near completing the vino half of the notorious "La Bomba" sangria/margarita swirl -- a classic that's served you as faithfully as a well-trained Austin Collie. With this stuff, Queen Latifah's "America the Beautiful" will be even more beautiful; get the goods right here
