I don’t love football.
I love preparing football-watching food for John and I to enjoy while
we he watches the game.
Here’s a round-up of some Super Bowl snacks, meals, and desserts that are sure to please both Steelers and Packers fans alike next weekend.
Let’s kick things off with some snacks:
Creamy, a bit sweet, and perfect when served with crunchy pita chips or crisp crudite.
Crunchy, sweet, and a bit salty… these nuts are highly addictive!
Clearly a dessert dip, this is best served at room temperature with sliced apples, cinnamon & sugar pita chips, or a big spoon ;).
Next up, chili! Ubiquitous football-watching food, for sure.
This spicy chili has just enough meat in it to satisfy any carnivore, but a hefty dose of beans keeps it healthy.
Different, yes. Delicious? Absolutely! This white chicken chili takes a little bit of time to prepare, but the creamy end result is so worth it.
If you’re less than thrilled with the idea of a slow-cooking dish, how about some quick-to-make chili cheese fries?
I used leftover chili for these beauties, but you could use canned chili in a pinch.
Another classic Super Bowl offering is pizza. And calzones. Which are basically pizzas rolled up into their own crust.
Eggplant Parmesan. Pizza. What’s not to love?
One of John’s favorites. Barbecue chicken meets pizza in the Southwest.
One of my favorites! Who knew thinly sliced potatoes could be such a delicious pizza topping?
There are quite a few toppings on this pizza, so a couple of slices are all you will need to feel satisfied. That being said, I won’t judge if you go for a third ;).
If you’re a fan of wings, you will LOVE these!
This Italian-Mexican hybrid is one of my all-time favorite creations. And let’s be honest… avocados make everything better.
What’s a Super Bowl party without something sweet to accompany the fourth quarter?
A lightened version of what is rapidly becoming a classic. These cheesecake bars – which are packed with cookie bits – are absolutely delectable.
Like peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Only better. Thick, rich & mouthwatering.
Happy Super Bowl eating!
