Yes, we Latinos love fútbol and football. One thing we won’t settle for though are basic, salty American snacks. Here are the kind of snacks you want to have at your Superbowl party. You know, snacks with sazón.
If you were a kid (we’re banking on the fact that you were) you know that one of your proudest moments was “inventing” a new snack you were pretty sure no one had ever tried before. Whether it was mayonnaise nachos, PB&J tacos, or pizza burritos con ketchup, you tried it all. Recently a TikTok user by the name of @belspies shared her own childhood creation when she showed her “Three M&Ms Ball” recipe on TikTok.
Tons of people on TikTok responded with their own special recipes on TikTok but we wanted to hear from you. So we asked you guys what treats you invented as kids.
“Man for real. This made me realize all the stuff we had to come up with because we were hungry, while my son over here can’t repeat the same thing for dinner as he had for lunch. Then again he has the privilege of his mother being home while mine worked, but still.” –avelar227
Tortilla snacks were where it was really at.
“I used to cut up tortillas in little triangles and sprinkle salt and lemon on them to snack on after school.” – salviscientist
Chocolate chips were where it was at.
“I would add chocolate chips to my cheesy nachos.”- mapauhan
Turns out we were all using ketchup for odd purposes.
“Pizza” = slice of bread, bologna, cheese ketchup & mayo, place in toaster oven until cheese melts.”- berenice02
“Ritz w/ ketchup, cream cheese tortilla rolls, fry a tortilla then add sugar and cinnamon to make my own buñelos, and Pillsberry dough biscuit to make doughnuts. My kid will never know the real struggle.” – pattybear59
“omg sliced cheese with ketchup 😅😅 I was 5 and I thought I made a masterpiece.” – musical_mary21
They’re crunchy, they’re spicy, they make your mouth water just thinking about them. They’re the best thing that has ever existed in the history of the world. That might sound dramatic, but you know we’re not wrong.
This gift guide is for the friend in your life who’s always got Hot Cheetos stained fingers, but that could also be you. So you can either be selfish and get all the good stuff for yourself or be selfless and gift your BFF the best Hot Cheetos inspired holiday presents.
