Super Loaded Potato Wraps and my real thoughts on this year's Super Bowl

Super Bowl Sunday will soon be upon us and to be perfectly honest, I'm feeling bitter. As you all know, the Super Bowl this year will be held in Indianapolis, just a couple of hours from where I grew up and even now only a few hours in the opposite direction from where I now live.

I was born in the Hoosier state and thus became a Colts fan over the years. Thankfully we've enjoyed year after year of romping success in the regular season as well as a Super Bowl victory in 2006. This year, however, was a rampant failure. Seriously...2 and 14!?! How can a team go from 14 and 2 to 2 and 14?!  I don't get it. And sure, Peyton Manning was out the whole season but there should be enough talent on that whole team to come out with more than 2 wins.

And to make matters worse, the Patriots are once again in the Super Bowl for the billionth time. As any Colts fan can understand, there is a deep disdain for the Patriots in Indiana. They always seem to steal our thunder and now they may do it on our own turf.

*Sigh*

In my opinion, there are three good things that can come from this Super Bowl Sunday...a Giants win, funny commercials and really great food. I came across a recipe from Kroger and adapted it to make it even more delicious. As a result, I created these Super Loaded Potato Wraps. These are great as a main dish or as an appetizer. I hope you enjoy them as much as I will enjoy a Patriots loss!

Go Colts...errr...I mean...Go Giants!




Super Loaded Potato Wraps
1- 28 oz. package potatoes o'brien
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1- 16 oz. container low fat sour cream
8 strips turkey bacon, cooked and torn to small pieces
2 green onions, chopped
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
12-15 small flour tortillas
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Cook potatoes according to package directions. Stir together potatoes, cheese, 1 cup sour cream, bacon, green onions, salt and pepper.

Spoon potato mixture into the center of each tortilla and roll up like a burrito. Lay wrap, seam side down onto a baking sheet then brush with melted butter. Allow space between each wrap so that the whole tortilla will crisp. You may need to use two separate baking sheets to fit them all.

Bake for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown.

Allow to cool for a few minutes then cut diagonally in half. Serve with the rest of the sour cream. Makes 12-15 whole tortillas. Enjoy!

  1. Yummy! These look fantastic. As a fellow Hooiser, I feel your pain about the Pats. But I have to admit, it's not b/c I'm a Colts fan. GO STEELERS!!! Lol. But I agree, the fact that Manning was out, does not excuse the losing season. One player doesn't make a team, and when you let another team get 62 points on you, there are some other HUGE issues! Thanks for sharing at Church Supper. Love seeing new faces. Have a blessed week and please come back again! ~EMM
