Southwestern Black Bean Bites

Super-Bowl-Week1As I mentioned yesterday, today kicks off Super Bowl Week here on Rainstorms and Love Notes! I only really have one rule when it comes to serving food at a Super Bowl Party: it has to be easy to grab and go. The focus of the day should be the game – the food should just be a delicious accent. Serving finger foods is a good way to ensure that people can enjoy tasty snacks without turning their attention away from the game.

These Southwestern Black Bean Bites are kind of like individual nachos, where no chip is lacking any topping. They’re also a great vegetarian option on a day where chicken wings tend to reign supreme.

      Thanks, Jordan! I’m glad you like the easy stuff! I’m all about spending time in the kitchen making stuff, but I get so mad when it doesn’t turn out like I’m hoping. For me, keeping it pretty simple usually means it turns out right πŸ™‚
