Super Bowl Food Ideas?

I am no football fan, but I somehow got roped into hosting some friends on Super Bowl Sunday. Was not thinking about doing a full dinner - probably just some heavy apps. Does anyone have any ideas or recipes that they want to share? Thanks in advance!

  1. The Buffalo Chicken Dip that has been posted here and on other site is a big hit for Super Bowl parties and easier and less messy than Buffalo Wings. I do highly recommend Fritos Scoops to serve with it.

      2nd this rec. Everyone loves this dip. I actually recommend it with tostitos scoops instead, as well as celery and carrot sticks for dipping.

        ok, read the recipe for this dip.... Is it really that good??? I have to bring a dish to a Super Bowl party.

        PS, if it IS that good... plan on baking it on-site?

          It's really greasy and heavy, not everyone goes wild for it. Probably better for a younger crowd.

      2. Deep dish pizza
        Chicago-style hot dogs.


        Tenderloin sandwich

        1. By no means, new, innovative or gourmet, but the most popular finger food at my parties is always Pigs in a Blanket. They go in seconds!

            It's funny how classic PIA are, and how no matter when they come out; people just eat them up!

          2. Along with various other snacks, we have fondues on Super Bowl Sunday. Usually a couple of different cheese fondues and a chocolate one. So, so good and easy, too.
            This year I may add to the table the potato recipe Candy just posted.

            Love scrapple's idea to go with the food from the cities involved.

            Around here we're rooting for Da Bears! Maybe I should add some beefs and saahsauges to the menu. Would go well wit da beerss.

            1. I like finger type foods.

              BBQ Ribs with jerk rub
              Guacomole Dip & Chips
              Steak Wraps with chimichurri sauce
              Crab Legs
              Italian Beef or Sausage
              Buffalo wings
              meat and cheese tray

              Even though I am a lifetime chicago area resident I am rooting for the Colts
