Sassy Saucy WRAP It Up Buffet Bar

This recipe is designed for that perfect Super Bowl Football Party. All the prep can be done ahead of time and then just set it out and let your guests assemble their very own wrap. These are small size but when they are full, they will fill you up for sure. Lay out all the following ingredients on big cutting board or platter. Give your guests place to assemble.


  • 10-12 " flour tortillas or wraps (for gluten free, use rice flour tortillas found in any store's gluten free section or large iceberg lettuce leaves)
  • whipped cheesy spread (see recipe)
  • rotisserie chicken (sliced in chunks)
  • pastrami slices
  • salami slices
  • dill pickles
  • sliced black olives
  • lettuce
  • bacon chutney (see recipe)
  • avocado
  • sliced tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes
  • spicy mustard dip (see recipe)

  1. Make cheesy spread, bacon chutney and mustard dip ahead of time and store in fridge.
  2. Can cut up all other ingredients and store in fridge.
  3. Can heat tortillas if you prefer but not required.
  4. Put everything out in a buffet layout for people to make their own wraps.

This recipe is mostly prep. Your guests will create the wrap themselves.

Suggest your guests start by slathering the cheesy spread on half the tortilla. Place chicken on the half without the cheese, then add toppings laying things like salami or pastrami slices on the cheesy side. Start by rolling the chicken side because the cheese spread helps "glue" the wrap together and keep the contents from falling out.

    Taco Bar
  1. Wrap corn or flour tortillas in foil and place on the grill to heat.

Sticky Sweet Polynesian Pork Skewers

Sticky Sweet Polynesian Pork Skewers

Interesting twist on the traditional grilled skewers.


    Marinade
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce or gluten free tamari
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or minced very fine (using a microplane is best)
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3/4 cup of Sauce Goddess Sticky Sweet Sauce (you can use Sweet & Spicy or Sweet Red Devil if you want)
    Skewers
  • 2 lbs pork loin or tenderloin, cut into 2” cubes
  • 1 red pepper cut into 2” pieces
  • 1 sweet onion cut into 2 “ pieces
  • 8 skewers

    Marinade
  1. In a bowl with a lid, mix the first 5 ingredients. Stir to combine. Taste for seasoning. If you like more salt, add more soy. If you like more tart flavors, add more vinegar. This is the time to adjust, before we place raw meat into the bowl.
  2. Pour off ½ cup of he liquid into a bowl for basting while grilling. That way this liquid won’t have any raw meat juices.
  3. Place the pork and veggies into container. Tighten the lid and shake to combine. Place in the fridge to marinade for 30-60 minutes.
    Skewers
  1. Preheat grill on medium heat.
  2. Place items on skewers alternating veggies and meat. Discard marinating liquid.
  3. Place skewers on the grill.
  4. Baste (with reserve marinade) and turn over as they brown. 3 to 4 times per skewer gets a nice even coat of sauce and browning.
  5. When the meat is done to 160 or fairly firm to the touch, remove from the grill.
  6. Serve with rice if desired.
