Chef Antonia LoFaso’s Super Bowl Recipes

Triple Touchdown Smash Burger with Queso Dip

Makes: Six 3-ounce patties (2 sliders)

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes


2 small brioche buns

Six 3-ounce meat patties (recipe below)

Meat Patty

5 ounces ground short rib

5 ounces ground brisket

9 ounces ground chuck

2 tablespoons ground cumin

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Queso Dip

1 medium yellow onion (brunoise)

2 pasilla chili (roasted, peeled and brunoise)

1 jalapeno (roasted, peeled and brunoise)

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup flour

2 cups milk

1 cup Velveeta cheese

Bouquet garni (onion, clove, bay leaf)


Toast the buns either on a grill or in the oven.

For the patties: Combine all ingredients together. Weigh out to 3-ounce balls. Place balls onto a flat top and press until ball is a thin patty about 1/4-inch thick. Season with salt and pepper. Flip patty and season with salt and pepper.

Cook until medium well or well done.

For the queso dip: Gently heat the milk with bouquet garni (milk should not boil).

In a separate pan, saute onion and chilies together in the 1/2 cup of butter until soft.

Add flour and constantly stir until the flour is golden brown and the consistency is that of wet sand.

Add the milk 1/4 cup at a time, whisking constantly. Keep adding milk until the consistency is slightly looser than nacho cheese.

Whisk in the Velveeta cheese to make the sauce a little tighter.

Assembly: Place the bottom bun on a plate and put 3 meat patties on top. Top with the top bun. Pour queso dip in a small bowl and serve with the hamburgers and dip with every bite.

1 bouquet garni (fresh parsley, rosemary, thyme, tarragon)

Smashed Beans

1 onion, diced (medium)

2 cups dried black beans

2 arbol chilis

1 sprig epazote

2 tablespoons grapeseed oil


Salt to taste

Pickled Chilis

1 gallon white vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons black peppercorn

4 habanero

1 bay leaf

1 medium size cinnamon stick

1 sprig thyme

1/3 cup jalapeno (sliced thinly)

2/3 cup mixed baby bell peppers (sliced thinly)


To make the nacho cheese:
Melt butter; do not get any color. Add flour and cook while stirring. Add milk and herbs tied together. Bring to a simmer and cook flour for about 5 minutes on medium flame, always mixing. Add cheese and cook until melted. Remove bouquet.

To make the pickled chilis: In a large 8-quart pot, combine white vinegar, sugar, salt, peppercorn, habanero, bay leaf, cinnamon stick and thyme.

Boil for 5 minutes until the liquid becomes brown.

While liquid is boiling, place sliced jalapeno and baby bell peppers in a nonreactive container.

Strain the liquid onto jalapeno and baby bell peppers.

Allow to sit in the liquid at least for 1 hour (the longer the better).

To make the smashed beans: Heat arbol chiles and epazote in a pot with the oil (bloom). After 30 seconds, add in the onion and sweat until translucent.

Add black beans and toast for 3 minutes while constantly stirring. Cover with water and cook until beans are soft.

Remove the beans from the liquid. Smash with with fork or potato masher.


Place 7 tostadas on the bottom of a large platter.

Top with 1 1/2 cups nacho cheese, and half of the following ingredients: smashed beans, skirt steak, chorizo, crema, salsa, avocado, corn, red onion, pickled chilis.

Top with the remaining 6 tostadas.

Repeat step 2, layering on more toppings.

Finish with cilantro leaves and cotija cheese.

Chef Joe Isidori’s Super Bowl Recipes

Shake It Off Fried Pickles With Ranch Dressing


Vegetable oil for frying

1 cup all-purpose flour (125 grams)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup buttermilk (118 milliliters)

1 large egg

3 kosher dill pickles cut into slices just shy of 1/4-in thick and lightly patted dry


Fill a heavy-bottomed saucepan 2-3 inches deep with oil for frying. Fix a frying thermometer to the edge (make sure it is in the oil but not touching the bottom of the pan) and set your heat to medium. Oil will need to reach 375 F (190 C) before you can begin frying, but this will take 10 minutes or so.

Meanwhile, prepare the breading mixture by whisking together flour, salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper and garlic powder. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk and egg.

Once oil has reached 375 F (190 C), prepare pickles for frying in batches of 3-4 slices.

Coat slices in flour mixture, gently shake off excess, dredge in buttermilk/egg mixture, then coat with flour mixture again.

Transfer (carefully!) to oil and fry 3-4 pickle slices at a time for 90 seconds on each side or until golden brown.

Use a slotted spoon or strainer to remove from oil and transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Make sure oil returns to 375 F (190C) before frying your next batch of pickles.
