I just read that the Super Bowl is the second highest food holiday, next to Thanksgiving! I am actually just making appetizers this year and catering the rest from Boston Market.  I have no time to shop/create this year. When I do have time, this is what I have done in the past that is always a big hit.

Appetizers should just be minimal and finger food. Think chips, dips, cheese/ crackers, etc.

crock pot

Main: make a chili bar, it is easy and you relax while your guests help themselves. You just make one big crock pot of chili, Chili recipe.doc, and set-up the fixin’s for the chili bowls, chili dogs and nacho’s. That way you have one big item with three different offerings.  I do these:

  • hot/mild chili peppers
  • sour cream
  • guacamole
  • shredded cheese
  • melted cheese (mini-crock pot)
  • hot dog
  • hot dog buns
  • onions, chopped
  • bacon
  • tortilla chips
  • condiments: ketchup/mustard/hot sauce/salsa
  • dessert brownies/cookies

Then you must have a fun game to get people involved, even though I really just watch for the commercials! The game we are doing this year is based on the first bets ala Las Vegas.  Some examples are:

  • Who wins the coin toss
  • 1st field goal
  • 1st dropped pass
  • 1st fumble
  • 1st touch down
  • 1st defensive score



Since the game is between the Forty-Niner’s and the Raven’s it is only fair that we highlight two colleges in those areas.
