Hello Friends! Happy mid-January. It’s already the 15th and I am still feeling the Christmas hangover. Not from drinking or eating, mind you, but just the hectic pace and endless to do lists. I’ll admit that it is nice to get back to “normal” and have more time to read books, do jigsaw puzzles, and blog! Last year I shared a Super Bowl Party Foods compilation with you and I’ve added more party foods that will be great for your Super Bowl party, so I’ve compiled a new list for you for 2017.
The Broncos are already out this year, so I’m rooting for the Cowboys. My sister and brother are both huge Cowboys fans and I like Romo and the rest of the team. I figure if my team can’t win this year, I’ll root for the Cowboys. I know you can’t win them all, but it sure would be fun to have at least been in the playoffs this year. At least Manning got a Super Bowl win in his final game of his incredible career.
Wait…..this is a food blog, not a football blog. Sorry about that. I get a little passionate when it comes to football. Us Coloradans take our football very seriously! Fortunately for you all, I also take my food very seriously and the Super Bowl is not only about football, but great food! This list of Super Bowl Party Foods has links to various recipes on the blog that are easy to prepare, will please any crowd and are great for parties. They are also delicious, I promise you that!
Let’s start with dips. Super Bowl parties are always loaded with dips. Not only in the crowd, but the kind you eat with chips as well. See what I did there?
This dip is one of my absolute favorites. It’s got some heat from the jalapeño and is super creamy from the mayonnaise and cheese and it’s served warm. It’s also loaded with artichokes and artichokes are loved by all. It’s great for dipping veggies or whole grain tortilla chips.
This is my favorite guacamole recipe. It’s got lime juice and little bits of red onion, tomatoes and just a touch of mayo for extra creaminess. Make extra. You’ll need it!
My deviled eggs have lots of texture from the crunchy applewood smoked bacon and green onions and a special secret ingredient that make them unlike your average deviled eggs. The Super Bowl is not the only time to make these eggs, but no Super Bowl party is complete without them.
Talk about easy! Everyone likes Chex Mix and homemade is a billion times better than the bagged mix from the grocery store. The beauty of my crockpot Chex Mix is that it’s no fuss and a cinch to clean up. Oh yes, and it tastes fantastic!
Just a warning on this one – don’t bring it to a party unless you are prepared to bring it to every party with those same guests in the future, because it’s a crowd favorite and you will be asked to bring it time and time again. It’s THAT good!
I think everything you need to know about this amazing macaroni and cheese is in the recipe name. Enough said.
I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Super Bowl where chili wasn’t served and this recipe is a winner. It cooks primarily in the crock pot and it’s good by itself, in Frito pie, on a hot dog or even on a burger.
I hope that whatever you do for the Super Bowl, that you are safe and have a great time laughing with friends and enjoying good food. Although I’m always sad when football season ends, we are just that much closer to Spring and warmer weather. Although I love all seasons, I tend to favor the warmer ones. That’s the California girl still living in me.
