Pace Superbowl Salsa Recipes and Giveaway Pack for Superbowl Sunday

Written by Diana - February 4, 2010 98 Comments

This Contest has been closed.

Pace did a giveaway last year for the Superbowl, and is doing it again.  We love Pace, don’t we.  Actually, we do love Pace, my husband is a salsafied salsa fiend. He eats a quart of salsa a week because he loves the fresh tomato taste.  Salsa is one of the healthiest dips/sauces around because it has lots of fresh vegetables and not a lot of fat and sugar.  You can top eggs, sandwiches, chips, burgers, beef, chicken, spaghetti.  It’s such a versatile topping, though you can just go at it with a spoon.

In preparation for Super Bowl XLIV (taking place this Sunday, Feb. 7 in Miami), here are four of Pace Kitchens’ favorite recipes for Super Bowl Sunday, to help make your party more festive and more memorable. Note:  Giveaway at the bottom of the page.

  2. Also in the comments, tell us who you think will win (guesses after half time will be tossed out).
  3. US residents only
  4. One entry per household
  5. Contest closes at halftime on Sunday, February 7th, 2010

Extra entries:

    I’m taking the first comment to give you my favorite Pace recipe

    Pace® Cheesy Chicken Bean Skillet

    From: Campbell’s Kitchen
    Prep: 5 minutes
    Cook: 10 minutes
    Serves: 4

    Ingredients:
    2 cups cubed, cooked chicken or turkey
    1 cup Pace® Mexican Four Cheese Salsa con Queso
    1 can (about 15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
    1 cup coarsely crumbled blue corn tortilla chips
    Directions:

    Heat the chicken, queso and beans in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot and bubbling.

    Top the chicken mixture with the tortilla chips just before serving.

    Tip: You can omit the crumbled tortilla chips and serve the chicken mixture as a quesadilla filling or a warm dip.

    I don’t know who will win – I know it’s not the Steelers, though.

    Nikki on February 5, 2010 at 9:57 am

    I would definitely make the spinach dip. Yummmm!

    And I think Indiaapolis will win.

    Pace® Cheesy Chicken Bean Skillet

    Carol on February 5, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    The Salsa Verde Meatballs appeal to me. I had my first “verde” (green) salsa in New Mexico, and I love it.

    I think the Saints will win!

    deb c on February 5, 2010 at 5:51 pm

    The salsa verde meatballs sound really good. I’d like to make them.

    Happi Shopr on February 5, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    Sweet & Spicy Barbecued Brisket sounds delish

    Deborah R on February 5, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    I’d make the Sweet & Spicy Barbecued Brisket – I love any kind of shredded BBQ beef or pork sammie!

    I also love Pace Salsa right out of the jar, in place of ketchup, on most anything, but expecially eggs.

    Deborah R on February 5, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    I wasn’t sure if you wanted this in a seperate comment – I probably should have chosen to err on the side of caution and add it my first comment. Sorry if I made the wrong choice!

    I’m rooting for the Saints to win the superbowl.

    Kimberly Bischoff on February 5, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    I would so make the Warm Spinach Dip with a Kick & I have to go with the Saints – only because my son bought me a flag in farmville and so I guess I am a temporary fan – lol

    DeeAnn S on February 5, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Love spinach dip and this is a great variation. I’ll be making the Warm Spinach Dip with a Kick! GOOOOOOO SAINTS!

    cathiem on February 5, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    I like the warm spinach dip.You could put it in the slow-cooker to keep it warm. I want the Saints to win but believe Peyton Manning is just too good to lose.

    Carol G on February 5, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    I would most likely make the Barbecues Brisket–easy, tasty and filling!

    Carol G on February 5, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Since I do not follow football, this is definitely a stab in the dark, but I will pick the Saints.

    susan varney on February 5, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    Susan C on February 7, 2010 at 4:25 am

    I like that Sweet & Spicy Barbeque Brisket. I might have to make that next week. How can you go wrong with a good BBQ??

    Who will win?? I’m going to say Colts, although I’ll be rooting for the Saints. (I am Catholic – got to root for saints.) I’m more interested in the commercials.
