Super Bowl Party Food
Below are some of our favorite Super Bowl foods! Everything can be made in advance!
FRENCH ONION DIP
You could buy pre-made dip or use a packet and mix it with sour cream. OR you could make this easy French onion dip. Go on, I dare you. But be warned, once you make this recipe, you will never serve it any other way.
WHITE BEAN CHICKEN CHILI
While I love a good old fashion tomato based chili, this healthy chicken and white bean chili is one of our favorite football Sunday meals. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream, some freshly shredded cheddar and avocado.
GLUTEN FREE SLOW COOKER CARNITAS
These are so easy and so good! And they are gluten free so everyone can enjoy them and you don’t have to worry about separate meals for anyone who might have gluten issues. Serve with rice, beans, chips, salsa and simple guacamole. (P.s. make sure the tortillas and chips are gluten free.)
SAUSAGE & TURKEY SLOW COOKER CHILI
This slow cooker chili has turkey and sausage combined with fresh veggies, roasted tomatoes, chiles and beans. Serve with Fritos Scoops, cornbread, chopped onions and shredded cheddar. Tip: Serve it Indiana style, which means over boiled macaroni.
ROLO CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Voted The Best Cookie Ever (by my son’s 8th grade class in 2019). But they seriously are! Browned butter and Rolo’s make these cookies standouts!
TIP: You have to make the dough the day before.
Tips for Hosting a Super Bowl Party
- Seating is Important
Have two sitting separate areas. One for those who watch the game and one for those who don’t. There is nothing more annoying than trying to watch the game with a bunch of people talking nonstop and not paying attention to the game.
Equally it sucks to be sushed nonstop if you are the talker who just came for the food, drinks and commercials.
- Keep the Decor Simple
I try and get things I can reuse year after year, and that are simple. A banner, a few foam fingers, and some small footballs are perfect. Green, white, and light brown to emulate the colors of the field, and they are all things you can reuse. Here are my six go to decor items for my Super Bowl gatherings.
TIP: Get balloons the morning of that are the colors of the two teams. Green, black, and white groupings and red, black, and white groupings this year.
