But can you take another year of snacking on corn chips and cheesy, processed dip? At the National Onion Association, we say, come on over to our team. We know onions!
We’ve been cooking up some good creations that would be great anytime, really. But since Super Bowl weekend is here, why not get into some fun recipes and please your crowd for the big game? Whether you’re rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs, or Philadelphia Eagles, hungry bellies will be aplenty.
Onions pair with everything, and they make a great Super Bowl Food spread better
When we think of food, onions come first. Our farmers have onions to sell, and they just go with everything on the table — raw, cooked, sauteed, sliced or diced. Onions are natural disease fighters because they contain quercetin, which functions as antioxidants in high levels as there are in onions. And did you know that one onion contains 11% of your daily fiber needs and 20% of your daily Vitamin C needs?
