More About My Super Bowl Recipes

So that you don’t show up empty handed for your Super Bowl Sunday party, I have put together a recipe guide with snacks perfect for watching the Super Bowl or for participating in any other game day. While these aren’t the healthiest recipes, “healthy” gets tossed aside for this sacred Sunday.


  • chicken wings
  • sliders
  • chili
  • dips (be sure to serve with plenty of potato chips or tortilla chips for dipping)
  • anything with buffalo sauce (like standard wings, cauliflower or dip)
  • things topped with cheese (nachos or just straight queso)
  • fried anything (like egg rolls)
  • lots of sour cream and bacon! (potato skins and more!)

Oh well, I guess you can count the celery and the carrots that go with the wings as “healthy”. Whether a tailgate or watch party these super bowl snacks recipes are sure to be a hit.
