Must Try Super Bowl Party Apps

This is one of my favorite times of the year! Any excuse to sit around, watch football and nosh on delicious, and probably bad for me, apps is OK in my book! With the big game quickly approaching, I searched high and low for my favorite super bowl appetizers. I found quite a few from my favorite bloggers, who are always there to help a girl out!

One of my favorite super bowl party appetizer recipes is the Shrimp and Chorizo Skewer, and it couldn’t be simpler! It is a quick one to put together also, and I’ve included options to make it even easier! The recipe is below, just after all of the other drool-worthy must try apps!

And now for the Shrimp and Chorizo Skewer recipe! This will be a hit at your next party!

Shrimp and Chorizo Skewers

INGREDIENTS
1 2 lb. bag frozen raw shrimp, shell on, easy peel- 26/30 size
1 onion, peeled and halved
1 clove of garlic, chopped in half
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons of shrimp and crab boil (optional)
1 package chorizo sausage, mine was 7 oz.
1 package 3.75 in. toothpicks
foil tin

DIRECTIONS
1. If you’re making these for “now,” preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Following the steps for my Homemade Shrimp Cocktail: Add the onion, garlic, bay leaf, shrimp and crab boil to a large pot of water, about 4 quarts, and bring to a boil.
2. Once the water is at a rolling boil, add in the shrimp and cook for about 4 minutes, until the shrimp turn pink and start to float to the top. Strain the shrimp and place into a bowl to cool.
3. Set the shrimp aside for an hour or so, to speed this up, you can cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.
4. Once the shrimp have cooled, begin to peel them, this is where the peel-and-eat factor comes into play, the process will be so much easier if you pick up this type of shrimp. For this recipe, be sure to remove the tails as well, to make the appetizer easier to eat in one bite!
5. Slice the chorizo sausage into semi-thin rounds, I got about 34 out of my 7 oz. package. You want them to have a nice bite to them.
6. Add one shrimp and one chorizo round to a skewer, place in the foil tin.
7. If you’re making these for “later,” you can refrigerate the skewers until you’re ready to go in a sealed container. When you are ready to eat, bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until the sausage looks crispy and everything is warm.

*Snap Tip:
If you’re short on time, you can use store bought shrimp to cut out steps 1-4. Look for either fresh cooked shrimp at your seafood counter or frozen cooked shrimp to defrost. “Homemade” shrimp is so delicious though, once you make it this way, everyone will ask for you to make it again! If you have some extra time, try it out!
