Top Superbowl Food Ideas (with recipes)!
Especially if you live in or are from or have ever been tailgating in Texas, you know what I talk about! It’s easy and even preferable to make the chili a day or several days in advance, so that all you’re responsible for on game day is getting drunk on Miller Highlife and heating up the chili. Lately I’ve been a real big fan of this chili with beans (don’t tell my dad!) but if you’re a true-blue no-beaner, use my dad’s Texas-style chili recipe. Use either recipe to make Frito pies by adding a table of toppings: cheese, onions, pickled jalapeños and Fritos. Another chili-related Superbowl recipe is the chili dog! (And if you abstain from the meats, try this vegan chili recipe and then thank your lucky stars that Fritos happen to be vegan, too. Phew!)

2. BUFFALO WINGS
I’ve got three fantastic options for you, my sweet, lovely sportsfans. Traditional fried chicken wings, boneless Buffalo wings (ahem, with a Doritos crust for real) and a new lighter and easier baked chicken wings recipe. Take your pick! Personally, I’d go with the baked wings. Much less mess, no leftover oil to dispose of, and you can easily cook, like, a thousand pounds of them at once (assuming you have an oven that big).

Jalapeño Ranch baby back ribs in your slow cooker require only about 2 seconds of prep time, leaving you many many more minutes to get your game day hair and face paint ready!

Oftentimes, old dudes will smoke a beef brisket over night in preparation for the football games and things, but hey did you know you can make a delicious and tender brisket in the oven? Well, it’s a fact, Jack. Check out my oven beef brisket with an incredible dry rub.

5. BUFFALO SHRIMP HOOTERS-STYLE. Dewds. Are you hearing me on this? I said “shrimp” and “Hooters” in the same sentence. IN THE SAME BREATH, even. I can’t understand why you’re not already eating these. Here, let me help:
6. SUPER NACHOS!!
These super nachos are extra super with a spicy avocado sauce to go on top. Make a giganto pile of nachos and watch your friends ooh and ahh over them for about half a second before they’re all ate up.

Every party needs a little sweet thing to snack on and I hear that chocolate chip cookies go great with beer. That might be a rumor but it’s one worth checking out, I think.

Homemade dips such as this OMG-homemade French onion dip. It’s the bomb dot com and you can make it today in about 10 minutes and it’ll be even better tomorrow or the day after that. I strongly suggest making a double batch. It’ll be gone fast. Serve it with crackers, potato chips or assorted vegetables cut into sticks.
And don’t forget everyone’s favorite dip (unless you hate it) GUACAMOLE! Peep this to see how to make guacamole that’s better than usual.
9. STUFFED MUSHROOMS
Even better, easy stuffed mushrooms. They are easy because you don’t have to cook anything first. You just jam some sausage in a mushroom and bake it. I heard that if you take a few minutes (5? 10?) to soak the mushroom caps in white wine before stuffing and baking, they won’t get wrinkled up in the oven. I haven’t tried it, but I appreciate things that include more alcohol.

10. CHEESE DIP
AKA . . . (imagine a drumroll here) QUESO!!!! Check out this classic hot, cheesy dip made with just four ingredients. Keep it warm and melty in a slow cooker on low or warm setting, and serve with many, many tortilla chips. To make it a little fancier or heartier, add cooked chorizo or beans.

Try these mini-chimichangas for an impressive (and vegetarian) Superbowl snack food. Flour tortillas rolled up around a beany-cheesy filling, then deep fried and served with cilantro cream sauce. People will be screaming your name.

Okey dokey! That’s all I got! Have a fun and safe Superbowl Party! Eat lots of snacks! Luv you!
