Superbowl snacking ideas

I'm looking for some good recipes that can be thrown together (or taken out of a box and microwaved if you prefer) for a large group of people during the Superbowl.

Obviously chips and bean dip or nachos and plenty of crackers... maybe some flautas or other mexican handables... perhaps buffalo wings, pizza rolls.

Any other great ideas of things that are easy on a budget? Healthy sides are good too, to cancel out the pizza and what not.

These are great, just like restaurant hot wings, and really easy to make in the microwave. Add a little blue cheese or ranch dressing for a dip and you're done.

We do a chili cook off deal. Guys create their best chili and the rest do taste testing and vote for the best chili. Usually get some exotic and creative stuff going on.

You can't go wrong with raw veggies and some dip. Also, corn chips and a good salsa is always a hit.

Rotel nacho dip... 1 can Rotel chopped tomatoes and diced green chiles with melted velveeta and chips is good.

Cocktail weiners-- 'lil smokies with hot/spicy mustards

HOT Family style sub sand-- Get two fresh loaves soft Italian Bread
layer:
Cream cheese (optional)
meats
cheeses
bacon (cooked)
tomatoes
onion
anything else you want
sprinkle some oil

Wrap in aluminum foil and bake until cheese is melted/bread toasty. Slice and serve.
It's yummy.. and presents well for a large group.

My favorite dip is a layer of cream cheese covered with salsa that I then cover with grated cheese and broil to a golden deliciousness. Serve with corn chips.

For something sweet, I serve those miniature round brownies that come in bags with whipped cream as a dip.

I love to get a can of chili and microwave it in a bowl with some cheese. Mix that around, reheat, and it'll be gone before kickoff.

Seconded.



That, with Velveeta and some good tortilla chips, is awfully tasty.

That, and maybe a batch of Chex Mix, is all I need for football watchin'.

I got my new Gold Medal FunPop popcorn maker in so popcorn will be a main snack.

Also, I like getting those frozen jalapeno poppers (In Dallas we can get the TGI Fridays brand I think) and I actually throw them on the grill. They get a nice crunch on the outside while the inside gets soft and yummy. You can do the same with cheese sticks, but you really have to watch the cheese sticks as if they break or crack on the grill, all the cheese will leak out. The poppers are easy. Once you get some nice grill marks on all side, they are read!

My wife make a great bean dip. Basically canned re fried bean with cream cheese, and chipotle Tabasco sauce. Great thing about it, is you just make it and serve it in a crock pot, so easy stays fresh all day. However highly recommend only doing on a crock post that the inside of bowl comes out. After cooking all the day it can be tough to clean up. But with a removable bowl, fill it up with soapy water over night then put in the dishwasher and is fine.

Just have a local sub shop cater it. Not Subway, a real place with the good stuff. A nice sub, chips, potato salad, and cookie platter will make any football game better.

Definitely not quick or easy, but I'm smoking a turkey for my Super Bowl party.

Well, I certainly didn't want to been the first.

Of course, at my age a veggie selection is a must. For every slice of pizza, you eat one piece of celery. For every plate of nachos, you eat a carrot and (oh no) a piece of broccoli. Naturally, if there are tomatoes in the nachos you can scratch the broccoli.

Each beer must be followed by half a glass of water and something with whole wheat in it.

You can read all about it in my upcoming book... The Anti-Pizza: Staying fit while eating fat.

mini pigs in a blanket with cocktail weines and phillisbury dough. That's what I plan on making for the UFC fight the night before, and carmel brownies.

Crab dip. I was introduced to crab dip at a SuperBowl party almost 10 years ago. I've had it every year since. Extra cheesy.

Add some crumbled sausage to this, and it's even better!

I make something similar, but use a braised lamb shank
