Super Bowl Style! Alexander Wang "Brady Football Clutch" & Seven-Layer Dip


Image via

In anticipation of Super Bowl Sunday I thought, "Why not?" Isn't this clutch great? I bet it feels like butter. I may even make a seven-layer dip on Sunday--I found a recipe for a genius Tex Mex version in New York Magazine in which you prepare the dip from scratch. It was created by Chef Joaquin (former partner in Momofuku) Baca and its served in my neck of the woods at Brooklyn Star.

Seven-Layer Dip

Refried Black Beans:
1/4 cup olive oil or lard
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
3 1/2 cups cooked black beans, liquid reserved

1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup long grain rice
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, diced
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Ground Beef:
2 tbs. olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
1 clove garlic, diced
1/2 tbs. chili powder
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. cumin seed
1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 pounds grated cheddar

2 ripe avocados, halved and peeled
1/2 red onion, diced
1 1/2 tbs. cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp. salt

Sour Cream:
1 1/2 cups

3 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
3 serrano chiles, finely chopped
2 tbs. cilantro, chopped
1/4 tsp. salt
juice of 1 lime


To Refry the Beans: In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the oil or lard. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add beans, gradually, mashing until smooth; add reserved liquid as needed.

For the Rice: In a large saucepot over medium heat, warm the oil. Add rice and onion, and stir constantly until rice is toasted. Add garlic and cook for a minute, then add chicken stock and remaining ingredients. Bring to boil, then cover pot and simmer for 20 minutes.

For the Ground Beef: In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Add onion and cook until translucent. Add the beef and seasonings and cook, crumbling beef until the liquid is absorbed.

For the Guacamole: Mash avocados and combine with the remaining ingredients.

For the Salsa: Combine all the ingredients.

To Make the Dip: In a large glass dish or bowl, (1) spread the refried beans into the bottom. Layer with rice, and (2) ground beef, cheese, guacamole, and sour cream. (3) Spoon and spread on salsa, and serve with tortilla chips.
