Superbowl Food (Ultimate Recipe Swap)

Ultimate Recipe Swap

My favorite SuperBowl supper is basically the same as my favorite New Year’s Eve Dinnerfull of snacks and finger foods and sparkly beverages.

Since at least two of my family members will have their eyes glued to the TV with some yells and screams thrown in for good measure, I like to make our Game Day Food easy and delicious. I prefer paper plates and lots of snacks, as few dishes as possible, and good eats.

Two years ago, my friend Erin introduced me to hummus pack and potato chips. Yes, potato chips. It. is. a. winner. I love that combination. I also through in some fresh veggies to assuage any guilt I might be feeling over the potato chips.

So you can guess what I’m picking up this weekend.

While I love the somewhat froofy food, most of the FishTeam prefers simpler fare. So, hummus is probably as froofy as it gets.

Here’s what I’m including in our SuperBowl menu this weekend, besides the hummus, of course:

Chips and Salsa

A Cheese Plate

Homemade Onion Dip

Super Easy Veggie Tray

  1. We love hummus too. Our favorite dipping accessory is Stacy’s pita chips. I buy several huge bags whenever I’m at Costco. I usually make my own hummus from canned garbanzos or garbanzo flour, but I want to start making hummus from dried garbanzo beans via the pressure cooker.

  2. Love the cheese and fruit tray idea. Thanks for hosting Jessica!

  3. I hope mine counts as superbowl food! I know some friends of mine who are making it for THEIR superbowl party! Thanks!

  4. LOL, well, since you mentioned hummus, I had to link up to my made-from-scratch recipe. (Though I will confess that while my husband and I prefer homemade, the kids like the Sabra brand better.)

    And although it’s not my own recipe, I will just add that *the best* salsa recipe I’ve ever made is the Pioneer Woman’s. It takes me all of 5 seconds in the food processor and it’s so, so good!

  5. I may be going to my first superbowl party ever this weekend. Normally not a fan, but friends of ours are having a party.

  6. This is perfect timing. I need to plan our Super Bowl menu. We live in PA so we’ll be glued to the TV cheering on the Steelers even though this is a Cowboy household. Oh well…maybe next year.

    Thanks for the link-up.

  7. We love finger food here! We are having a veggie tray, mini subs, chips and dip, etc

  8. Oh how I love Superbowl food!

  9. I love that the Super Bowl gives me another excuse to cook fun appetizers for folks! These are great ideas; thanks.

  10. your salsa looks amazing. i never developed a taste for jarred salsa, but i love fresh. when i make fresh salsa i’m the only one who eats it, so i stopped making it. hubby has developed a taste for pace and pace only on soft tacos. now, if i use my fresh salsa in enchiladas, or as a dip for chips or some other non-taco application he loves it. one day, i’m hoping he’ll let go of the need to have store bought salsa on his soft tacos. one. fine. day.

    i finally got to indexing all my recipes (boring…) and decided to make a healthy superbowl recipe roundup to share with the fishfamily today. enjoy and stay warm!

  11. You have a really good game day going, I brought one of my favorite game day recipes, Slow Cooker Green Chili Pulled Pork Burritos. Thank you for hosting and stay warm!

  12. We aren’t super bowling it up around here but Valentine’s weekend we are hosting an appetizer supper, so I can’t wait to look at some of these links.

    I linked to my Korean Chicken recipe which makes amazing wings.

  13. Lettuce Wraps are perfect any day of the year!

  14. I added amazing Olive Cheese Bread! So good!

  15. We love this recipe for buffalo chicken dip. So yummy! We’ve been contemplating trying it with ranch instead of bleu cheese (we have a friend who can’t stand bleu cheese). Substituting ranch dressing for the bleu cheese dressing is a no-brainer, but we can’t think of what to substitute for the bleu cheese crumbles. Maybe cheddar crumbles. We’ll see!

    Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Chicken Dip

    1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
    ½ C Frank’s Redhot sauce
    ½ C bleu cheese dressing
    ½ C bleu cheese crumbles
    2 cans (9.75 oz) chunk chicken breast, drained (or 2 C cubed cooked chicken)

    Mix ingredients in deep baking dish or pie plate.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min or until hot. Serve with tortilla chips.

  16. Planning on 40-50 people at our house. Making sloppy joes, buffalo chicken dip and brownies. Everyone plans to bring stuff. After doing nachos for the last game, I decided to go smaller since all the snacks everyone else brought barely got touched after they filled their plate with nachos. Trying to keep it simple for less time, less money, and less fuss!

  17. meals in a snap says:

    just posted my recipe for (meatless!) “sausage” dip…it’s a crowd pleasing, super simple dip that is hearty enough for the canrivorous guys, but even vegetarians can partake in the yumminess! enjoy!
