Satisfy your snack hunger with recipes from Coca-Cola

As the big day approaches, is there more talk about the game or what will be served before, during and after the game?

Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest snack food days of the year, and food and drink are definitely the topics of conversation as fans plan their parties.

I plan to make pulled beef with a can of Coke and enchilada sauce that we served for a Super Bowl gathering a couple years ago. We created our own recipe, but there are many, if not hundreds, of versions of this idea, all simple and delicious. Many go into the Crock-Pot. How easy is that?

The other Coke recipes ( will surprise and please the gang.

Add fresh salads, veggie and fruit trays. No doubt you’ll enjoy some of the 8 million pounds of guacamole and 15 tons of chips that will be served during the game.

Ginger Chicken Wings

From Coca-Cola Co.

2 slices ginger

12 chicken wings, middle section

2 teaspoons oil

1/2 cup dark soy sauce

1 12-ounce Coca-Cola

Heat oil to medium/hot; add ginger and wings, brown wings on both sides. When all wings are browned, remove ginger, add soy sauce and Coke. Bring to a boil, immediately turn to medium/low and simmer about 30 minutes or until meat falls off bone easily. Taste; add more soy sauce if needed; cook to thicken sauce. Cover wings with sauce/serve.

Coca-Cola Roast

A Heritage Recipe. We like for pulled meat.

1 beef roast

2 cans cream of mushroom soup

1 can Coke

1 package dry onion soup mix

Place roast in pan, mix all other ingredients; pour over roast. Cover tightly with foil, bake at 325 degrees 3–4 hours.

Dixie’s note: We use cream of chicken soup; place everything after browning roast in the Crock-Pot on low, 8–9 hours. When tender, remove meat; in bowl, pull meat apart with forks. Gradually add sauce to meat until it reaches texture for sandwiches. Serve with buns, tortilla shells, pita bread and shredded cheese, sliced onions or sour cream.

Diet Cherry Coke Lentils

From Coca-Cola Co.

2 cups diced ham

1 medium onion, finely chopped

12 ounce Diet Cherry Coke

Wash and sort lentils. Cover with water. Bring to boil then reduce to a simmer. Add ham and onion. Simmer for 40–50 minutes. Add Diet Cherry Coke. This will produce a lot of foam. Simmer 10–15 minutes or until lentils are done.

Grecian Green Beans

From Coca-Cola Co.

Makes 1 quart, Serve chilled or as hot vegetable with steak, hamburger or meat loaf. Or make ahead, refrigerate. This tangy dish does double duty as a hot vegetable/cold salad/relish.
