This post is sponsored by my fave place to grocery shop, H-E-B. All the thoughts are my own and I truly loved discovering new, “home grown” products at my local H-E-B.
The past few weeks I have shared many recipes and cocktails that would be perfect for your a Big Game watch party, while food is definitely the hub of any great party, one thing that can’t be overlooked is a good theme! We Houstonians couldn’t be prouder that the Big Game is in our fair city and what better theme than giving your guests a little Houston, Texas flavor on game day. With the help of H-E-B you can Houston Tex-ify your watch party with their distinctive Primo Pick items, a lot of which are born and raised deep in the heart of Texas!
Here are just a few of the Primo Picks I snagged during a recent trip to H-E-B to help me get my Houston themed big game watch party together.
To create individual “Quarterback Snacks” for game day watchers to enjoy, fill individual brown paper bags with H-E-B Texas Heat Trail Mix. Perfect for your guests to munch on once they have found the comfiest spot to watch the game.
Show Houston some love with “H-Town Heat” spicy chicken buffalo dip! Made with H-E-B local chicken breast and Flyin’ Saucy Hot Wing Sauce, this cheesy, spicy delicious dip pairs perfectly with Texan Original Tortilla Chips (full recipe can be found in the free printable download).
Need something sweet to satisfy your big game watchin’ guests? Check out my recipe (also found in the free printable download) for Texas Sheet Cake “Blitz Bites”! These are the perfect bite-sized treats that game day guests can grab and go, no cutlery required. Made with Primo Pick Guittard unsweetened cocoa powder, these decadent little cakes are Texas as it gets!
And then there’s the drinks! H-E-B has a great selection of beer brewed right here in Houston! The Elysian “Space Dust” IPA is perfect to give your guests a taste of Space City. My husband is a huge IPA fan, and he loved that one! Showcase these sips with the “Draft Picks” sign either glued to a skewer and stuck in an ice bucket with your beers or folded like a tent next to your drink area (printable found in free download).
What’s a football party without a great cocktail? I am not typically a drinker of savory cocktails, but I sure have fun dressing them up and playing with ingredients. Elevate your Bloody Mary with The Jank spicy barbecue sauce and these super cute Hale Mary flags. Check out my Chipotle Bacon Bloody Mary recipe that will for sure be a touchdown on the day of the Big Game.
In the spirit of Texas, do it BIG for the Big Game this year! Download these free printables to add a special touch to your Big Game party. Deets on where to get this sweet shirt here!
