1 pound small red or white potatoes

2-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided

1-1/2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced

2 tablespoons extravaGONZO Roasted Garlic Culinary Oil

1 pound thick-cut bacon

8 ounces sour cream

1-3 teaspoons hot sauce

pepper to taste


Arrange rack in the middle of oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Wash and dry potatoes. Chop into 1-inch pieces, keeping chunks roughly the same size. Put potatoes in medium pot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Season water with 2 teaspoons salt. Once water begins to boil, cook until just fork tender, 3-4 minutes. Potatoes should not be fully cooked.

Drain and place in a large bowl. Add rosemary, Roasted Garlic Oil, remaining salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated. Cut strips of bacon into thirds. Wrap each potato piece in bacon, securing with a toothpick. Place on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Space about 1-inch apart. Bake 15 minutes, then flip all pieces. Bake another 15-20 minutes, until bacon is cooked through. Mix the sour cream and hot sauce in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve potato bites with dip.

3 pounds Chicken Wings

1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped

1 Jalapeño pepper, seeds removed

3 cloves garlic, peeled

Zest and juice from 1 lime

1/4 bunch cilantro

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons extravaGONZO Jalapeno Lime Culinary Oil

Instructions: Put 3 pounds of wings in a giant ziploc bag. Coarsely chop 1/2 onion, de-seed jalapeno pepper, 3 cloves garlic, zest and juice of lime, and break 1/2 bunch of cilantro into smaller pieces. Combine salt, pepper, soy sauce and Jalapeno Lime Oil in a blender. Toss in onion, jalapeno, garlic, lime zest and juice, and cilantro. Blend until pureed. Pour over chicken, close bag, and squish around so each piece is coated with the marinade. Marinate 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line baking sheet with foil. Remove wings from bag and place on wire rack. If you don’t have a wire rack, put the wings right on the foil. They won’t be as crispy as if prepared on a rack, but they will still be delicious. Bake 30 minutes. Flip over. Use any extra marinade to baste the wings once turned over. Bake for another 30 minutes and serve warm.

​Happy Super Bowl!
