  • Cooking Directions

    2 Days Before

    Crush enough Fritos, Cool Ranch Doritos, and Nacho Cheese Doritos to get 1 cup of each. To crush, put one type of chips in a ziplock bag, press out as much air as you can, and smash with your hands or the bottom of a pot until they're mostly small crumbs.

    Cook about 8-10 slices bacon until crispy and crumble it into 1/2 cup bits. The best, easiest way to do it is to spread the bacon out on a wire cooling rack set in a sheet pan. Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until crispy. You could also just buy bacon bits.

    Cook each type of rice — brown, white, and yellow (from a Goya box) — according to directions. Set aside 1 cup of each. Saute 1 cup frozen corn in a nonstick pan until water evaporates and it starts to brown. Hard-boil 3 or 4 eggs. Stash everything in small tupperware containers or ziplock bags and refrigerate.

    1 Day Before

    Finely chop enough of these veggies 'n things to yield the amounts indicated:

    hard-boiled eggs (1 cup)

    red cabbage (1 cup)

    iceberg lettuce (1 cup)

    bell pepper (1 cup)

    fresh tomatoes (1 cup)

    mango (1 cup)

    dill pickles (1/2 cup)

    pickled okra (1/2 cup)

    black olives (1/2 cup)

    pickled jalapeños (1/4 cup)

    fresh jalapeños (1/4 cup)

    red onion (1/4 cup)

    scallions (1/4 cup)

    cucumber (1/4 cup)

    Grate 1 cup each cheddar cheese and pepper jack cheese. Crumble 1 cup feta or cotija cheese. Sauté 1/2 lb. ground beef with, optionally, 1/2 packet taco seasoning (according to instructions). Cook 1/2 lb. ground turkey with the remaining 1/2 packet of seasoning. Sauté 1/2 lb. chorizo (about 2-3 sausages) until it's browned and fully cooked, then chop finely. Round up 1/2 lb. pulled pork (I bought it at a Cuban restaurant, you could also try a BBQ joint make your own) and finely chop. Bake 1 box Jiffy cornbread according to instructions. Once it cools, crumble enough for 1 cup. Stash everything in small tupperware containers or ziplock bags and refrigerate.

    On Game Day

    Collect 12-oz. jars or measure out 1.5 cups of these saucier ingredients:

    pico de gallo

    red salsa

    green salsa

    salsa con queso


    sour cream

    ketchup (just 1 cup)

    Thoroughly drain black beans and pinto beans (one 12-oz. can each). Chop 1 avocado and drizzle with lime juice to keep it from browning. Finely chop chicken nuggets and french fries (best option: buy a 10-piece nuggets and large fries from McDonald's) to yield 1 cup each. Heat up refried beans and beef chili (one 12-oz. can each) in small saucepans. Cook 1 package boxed mac n cheese (suggestion: Kraft original) according to instructions and set aside 1 cup (you can eat the rest!). Bake 1/2 bag frozen tater tots according to instructions (you can do this last minute, while you're assembling the rest of the dip).


    Start with brown rice in the bottom of the bowl and work your way up in the order listed below. Sprinkle each ingredient over the last and then use a spatula to smooth out into even layers. Remember that you want to make sure each layer reaches the edge of the bowl so you can see it from the outside. Squeeze the juice from half a lime and sprinkle a pinch or two of salt over the red onion when you get there. At then very end, top with about 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves and drizzle with your favorite hot sauce.
