Congratulations Seattle Seahawks on your 2014 Super Bowl Win!!!!
I must say I am happy that Seattle won, they really controlled the entire game, which was a lot easier to watch then sitting on the edge of your seat with the score going back and forward 🙂
So I was able to enjoy the commercial’s (which some fell short) and I do have my favorites 🙂
And talk about an AMAZING Halftime Show!! Bruno Mars is such an amazingly talented man, I have always enjoyed seeing him preform on “Award” shows 🙂
But before we get to all of that, I did a Super Bowl snacking spot for one of our local news channels, guacamole and Bean and Corn salsa along with Endive Taco Boats.
Here is the link if you would like to watch the spot 🙂
Bean and Corn Salsa recipes are a plenty as well as guacamole recipes but this is how I make mine 🙂

1 can black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 can corn with peppers, drained
1 can chunky tomatoes with green chilies (mild or Hot you choose), drained

You can place chicken in a bowl, Salsa in a bowl and guacamole in a bowl have a platter of Endive Leaves and let your guest make their own Taco Boats, chicken then salsa topped with a little guacamole.
These recipes were a big hit with everyone back at the station along with everyone at the office that got to have all the leftovers 🙂
These were my favorite commercials 🙂
1. Volkswagon (this one made me giggle)
2. Mcdonalds (this one was funny too)
They removed this one from youtube, but if you search around you’ll find it 🙂
3. Budweiser – A Soldier’s return (this one so touching and I had tears)

4. Another cute Budweiser – Puppy Adoption

Of course there were more that were good but these were my top picks!! 🙂
And here is one of the BEST SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOWS EVER!!! (not a fan of the RHCP, so I would have left them out and just kept more of Bruno!!!) Turn your speakers up!!! and get ready to Dance!!!
