Once a year, we gather around the big screen, stuff our faces with delicious dips and wings and watch two teams duel: it’s the Super Bowl. If you’re having friends over for beers and munchies, here are 10 dishes to add to your menu.
Warm Cheese and Tomato Dip
It’s not a Super Bowl party without a delicious dip. This cheesy, warm and spicy dip will be gone in no time.
Pork Shoulder with Maple Barbecue Sauce
This is one you might want to prepare the night before because it will take a few hours. Grab some fresh buns and allow guests to assemble their own sandwiches.
Meatball Kebabs with Avocado Tzatziki
These meatballs are the perfect finger food for Super Bowl Sunday. The refreshing avocado tzatziki adds a hint of tang to the spicy meatballs, which can double as a healthy dip for fresh veggies.
Three Potato Salad with Bacon
Looking for a decadent side to go with those meatballs? This creamy potato salad with a touch of bacon will be a hit.
Grilled Peach BBQ Chicken Wings
These chicken wings are cooked on low and slow for crispy skin and moist, tender chicken every time. Throw them on before guests arrive for a quick and easy dish.
Mexican Saucy Beef Short Ribs
Heat up the slow cooker and throw this delicious meal together:
1. Pour a 2-cup (500 mL) jar of salsa into slow cooker. Add chipotle sauce, cumin powder, coriander powder, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper to taste.
2. Toss in minced garlic. Cut 3 lb (1.5 kg) beef short ribs into chunks and stir into sauce.
3. Cook on high for 6 hours. Serve with rice and chopped cilantro.
Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers
Don’t fret if you’ve got a vegetarian coming to your football bash. These stuffed peppers will thrill veggies and non-veggies alike.
Spicy Black Bean Dip
This vegetarian-friendly dip is spicy and filling. Add some tortilla chips next to the bowl and watch it disappear.
It doesn’t get much better than this combination: crispy, salty bacon and slightly smoky guacamole.
