With the Super Bowl XLVII underway at the Mercedes Benz Superdome, as fans root for their favorite teams, food once again can bring both sides together.  Chips, buffalo wings, salsa and dip have become staple Super Bowl foods.  This Super Bowl, add some global touches to your Super Bowl favorites.  Celebrate the Baltimore Ravens, with Suya, a dish inspired by the Nigerian culture of linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo.  Suya, similar to a kabob, is a spicy meat dish served on a skewer.  It can be a main dish served with vegetables and rice or eaten as finger food.  Check out a link to a recipe for Suya in the Nigerian section of Destinations Page in GrubPassport.   To make a healthier version, substitute the meat with tofu or seitan.

The NFL is increasingly global with a few notable foreign-born players including Super Bowl XL MVP and Steelers great Hines Ward, who was born in South Korea and Oakland raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski of Poland.  Football fans from all over the world can enjoy the  “Harbowl” nourishing  their own local dishes while seeing  which Harbaugh brother will go home happy or if Ray Lewis will win the Super Bowl MVP on his last game before retirement.

It also seems right to enjoy Beyonce at the Pepsi  Super Bowl XLVII halftime show and all the $4 million dollar clever commercials munching on some Chilean empanadas , Brazilian Churrasco or  with some Bolivian Saltenas.  At the very least surprise your Super  Bowl party with some chicken wings laced with hot and spicy Jamaican jerk sauce.

As the host city of the Super Bowl, New Orleans is known for its bold flavors and French influence.   So why not try a French classic Crepe, filled with ranch dressing, baked chicken strips, lettuce, sliced avocados, and salsa.  Add a sweet treat to Game Day with a slice of American pie.

So regardless of the outcome, GrubPassport.com  can make your Super Bowl experience even more memorable this year.
