Great Party Food for a Super Bowl or Other Fun Shindig

Brats with Sauteed Peppers and Onions

If you’re a football fan, or a foodball fan as the case may be, you may be gearing up for a party next week when the Ravens and 49s go head to head. The FishHouse is rooting for the California team. But, we, sadly, don’t own a jersey to feature this year.

For those of you not in the know, I find it fascinating that the coaches of the opposing teams are brothers! That should make for some interesting family get-togethers in the coming months.

Not into football? That’s okay. This is fun party food for any shindig you might be planning. Check out the line-up of tasty snacks, drinks, and desserts you can serve to a crowd.

All of them are kid-friendly, not too spicy, easy to make ahead, and mostly whole foods.

    We always make chili for parties. I brown up a pound of ground beef, add some chili powder and 32 oz or so of our favorite salsa and a couple of drained cans of beans. But I think this year we are going to try your Chihuahua Chili from The Book!
