For some, it doesn’t matter what teams are playing in the big game, and who cares about the half-time performance. Instead, it’s all about the party and the food and drinks. If you’re looking to turn your Super Bowl party into a touchdown-worthy fiesta with a Tex-Mex extravaganza that’ll have your taste buds doing the endzone dance, add La Tortilla and 505 Southwestern salsas to your shopping list.
Kick things off with nachos so loaded that they might need their own playbook – cheesy, spicy, and guac-tactic. Keep the offense strong with the flame-roasted Green Chile corn dip that’s a real MVP, bringing the heat with each bite. Take your game plan up a notch with Philly Cheessteak Quesadillas that’ll tackle those hunger pangs like a defensive line going after Patrick Mahomes. And don’t forget the salsa lineup – from mild Hatch Valley Green Chile to watch out for the ‘kick’ in the pineapple mango salsa, it’s a flavor party in every jar. With Tex-Mex in play, your Super Bowl party is a guaranteed win – no instant replay needed!

Hatch Green Chile Cheese Ball with Homemade Tortilla Chips
16 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz grated/shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onion, divided
1/2 cup Hatch Valley Flame Roasted Green Chile
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 slice mozzarella or white cheddar cheese
6-8 La Tortilla Factory Flour Tortillas
Spray avocado or olive oil
In a medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese, cheddar, Hatch Valley Flame Roasted Green Chile, garlic powder, salt, and around 2-3 TBSP chopped green onion and mix well.
Scoop out the cream cheese mixture and place it on a sheet of parchment paper or a cutting board and flatten the top of the ball, pinching and shaping it into a football. NOTE: If the cheese mixture is too soft to shape, transfer to the fridge for 15-30 minutes.
While your cheese ball chills, chop the bacon into pieces and cook until crispy. Transfer to a bowl and combine with panko and the remaining green onion.
Remove cheeseball from fridge and once shaped into a football, press panko mixture firmly into the cheeseball to coat. Finally cut a slice of mozzarella into one long slice for the center of the football and smaller slices for the laces.
For the Tortilla Chips:
Cut small taco-sized tortillas into 4 triangles. Spray both sides and add to your air fryer in single layers.
Cook at 350 for 4 minutes and flip cooking an additional 3 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with salt. Repeat until all tortillas are crisp. Finally serve with the cheeseball for a perfect pairing.

Philly Cheesesteak Quesadillas
1 pack La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Tortillas
1 red bell pepper
1 10 oz pack thinly-sliced ribeye steak
1-2 cups shredded provolone cheese (or low-fat mozzarella cheese for a healthier twist!)
1 cup sour cream
¼ cup hot sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning
Salt + pepper to taste
Start by prepping your veggies. Dice onion and bell pepper into bite sized pieces. In a pan add 1-2 TB avocado oil.
Over medium heat, add in onions and peppers with all-purpose seasoning and garlic powder. Cook about 6-8 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Add an additional 1-2 TB oil to the same pan and add in the sliced ribeye. Season with salt and pepper and begin to break the meat into smaller pieces. (You can use two forks to separate the thin layers.) Cook for about 5-7 minutes until the meat is browned.
Remove meat and set aside. Wipe any remaining ingredients from the pan and heat another TB of oil over medium heat. While oil heats up, assemble the quesadilla.
Add a sprinkle of cheese to the bottom tortilla, then meat, onions and peppers, and more cheese. Place in the pan and then top with another tortilla. Press down with a spatula and cook about 2-3 min per side until golden brown.
Remove and repeat as many times as you like to make your quesadillas. Serve with a side of spicy sour cream. To make: combine 1 cup sour cream and ¼ cup hot sauce, depending on how flavorful you like it, and mix well. Garnish with cilantro if desired and serve.
