Super Bowl XLVIII is almost upon us. If you’re not a Seahawks or Broncos fan, that means you’re spending your time focusing on one thing — Super Bowl food. I’m not a huge football fan, but I am a huge food fan (if you haven’t already guessed). That means this Sunday gives me yet another reason to create and consume mounds of delectable goodies.
I was attempting to finalize this weekend’s menu when I found myself scrolling through some of my own Cooking On Empty recipes. To my surprise, I have a lot a dishes that would be perfect for an easy, cheap, and delicious Super Bowl party. To make it easier, I’ve complied them all in one place.
Here are the top five Cooking On Empty dishes for the perfect Super Bowl party.

Everyone loves pizza and everyone loves quesadillas. These two truths inspired my most recent culinary creation – the quesadilla pizza!
My roommate had left over pizza toppings from a recent pizza making extravaganza (there’s not better way to explain it, so I’ll leave it at that). I had whole wheat tortillas left from my Distrito inspired fish tacos, so I decided to combine the two to make a quick, no purchase necessary dinner.
Here’s all you need.
Quesadilla Pizza Ingredients: (Serves 2)
- 4 whole wheat tortillas
- 1 can pizza sauce
- 1 cup of grated mozzarella cheese
For a basic pizza stop there. If you want to be adventurous add:
- 1/4 cup chopped broccoli
- 1/4 cup chopped red pepper
- 1/4 cup black olives
