Super Bowl Smackdown IV: Chip shots

It was only inevitable that Joe and Bonnie would, at some point, turn to nachos for their annual Super Bowl Smackdown. Those corn-based snacks, after all, have frequented more Super Bowl parties than Dan Snyder. (Where's a rim shot when you need one?)

Anyway, both Food Editor Joe Yonan and Deputy Food Editor Bonnie Benwick relied on high-priced free agents to help build their nacho game plan for Smackdown IV. Joe dialed up no less an expert than Rick Bayless, the chef who lived in Mexico while writing his classic cookbook, "Authentic Mexican: Regional Cooking From the Heart of Mexico" (William Morrow, 1987). Bonnie countered with some counter-top quarterbacking from David Suarez, culinary director of Rosa Mexicano.

Bayless helped Joe create this delicious-sounding Tostadas With Chorizo, Tangy Guacamole and Fresh Cheese, while Suarez helped Bonnie build this equally tasty-sounding Potato Chip Nachos With Chipotle Beef.

Much like 2009's Smackdown, last year's SD IV had a decisive winner, based at least on online voting. But I won't reveal the tally here. Why? Because you can still vote on your favorite recipe over on the original story page.
