Martin's Ultimate Game Plan - Featured Products

The #1 most watched sporting event in the U.S. is less than four weeks away! The 56th annual professional football championship game will take place on Sunday, February 13th.

Do you have everything you need to host a game-winning party? If not—be sure to GEAR up!


QUICK & EASY Game Day Recipes for the WIN

Cheesy Southwest Corn Bacon Dip

Every Game Day party needs an assortment of snackable goodies—from appetizers and chips with dip to sandwiches, sliders, and subs! The trick to prepping this great spread of food is to choose smart recipes that let your kitchen do the cooking so you can spend more time watching the game (and laughing at the commercials)!

Pro Tip: Try using convenient cooking appliances like an Air Fryer or Multi-Cooker!

What is an Air Fryer?

An air fryer is a type of miniature convection oven that heats food quickly by circulating hot air via fan to create delicious (and healthier) fried foods. Want to snack on some French fries or mozzarella sticks during the halftime show? Sure! Looking to prepare homemade chips to serve with your favorite dip? No problem! Just use an air fryer to make your favorite crispy snacks and toasty creations in as little as 10 minutes!

What is a Multi-Cooker?

As the name implies, a multi-cooker is a multifunctional appliance that lets you sauté, steam, slow-cook, pressure-cook, roast, and more to prepare a variety of delicious foods! Make use of one to enjoy your favorite buffalo chicken sandwiches, make shredded pork carnitas, or whip up your ultimate Game Day dip recipe in no time!

Both of these nifty devices can assist you in preparing your favorite foods for the Big Game!


Featured Recipe: Southwest Corn & Chicken Dip (Two Ways)

Southwest Corn & Chicken Dip Hoagie

To illustrate the benefits of the two appliances mentioned above, this week’s featured recipe showcases both devices in unique ways. Check it out!

Step 1:

Prepare Air Fryer Chili-Lime Bread Chips

Did you know you can transform Martin’s bread and rolls into crunchy pita chip-like crackers using an air fryer? To make this flavor variation, we flattened a Martin’s Hoagie Roll, brushed it which a chili-lime seasoned butter, sliced into strips and air fried at 390° for 5 minutes until golden-brown and toasty!

Step 2:

Use the sauté function of a multi-cooker to cook up some bacon until crispy.

Step 3:

Add chicken breast and cook until seared. Mix in onion, corn, and jalapeño; sauté until fragrant, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic.

Step 4:

Add spices, tomatoes, green chilies, and cream cheese. Secure lid and set to pressure cooker setting. Cook on high for 15 minutes.

Step 5:

Release steam. Add in cheddar cheese and cooked bacon. Sauté until dip is hot and bubbly.

Step 6: Serve one of two ways:

1) As a sub on Martin’s Hoagie Rolls,

Southwest Corn & Chicken Dip Hoagie

2) as a dip alongside your Air Fryer Bread Chips from Step 1.
