I would love to say that I’m woman who doesn’t love the Super Bowl but then I’d be lying. I will be honest and say that I really don’t care who is playing, is that bad that I just admitted that? I have 5 boys and so not watching the game in this house isn’t possible. I was talking to my husband the other night and he asked me who was playing this year and I was proud to say that I knew the Denver Broncos were playing but then he asked me who the other team was, I am sad to say my 8-year-old was yelling the answer to me in the background. Yes I know now it is the Carolina Panthers.

I watch the Super Bowl for 3 reasons – the food, the commercials and the Half Time Show – in that order. A girl has to have her priorities. It seems that there are some commercials that never disappoint. I love the Budweiser Clydesdale horses, the Doritos commercials and I always love seeing the Diet Coke Bears. The Snickers commercials are good and I really enjoy the Pistachios ones.

Like I said though FOOD does come first for me so with that being said I wanted to share with you some of my own personal, yummy appetizers that can make any Super Bowl party great and they don’t require a lot of prep.


Guacamole Dip

I had a friend and her husband over for New Years and this easy delicious guacamole dip is what she brought to share. It is my new favorite and am embarrassed to say that I make it several times a week for myself. It is so simple and if you are an avocado lover like me then this will be your new favorite. Also, the McCormick mix can be picked up at Winco for .48 cents. Awesome!

Sausage and Cheese Dip

This one is a no brainer, if you like the crock pot then this is the snack for you. And who doesn’t love Velveeta cheese. The one thing to keep in mind is it makes a lot so if you don’t have a big group coming, half the recipe.


Hot Chicken Wing Dip

This one is great and has the perfect amount of zing to it. Simple ingredients and hardly anytime. It’s one you can make ahead and throw in the oven right before the party starts. If I ever have leftovers they heat up great.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

I know what you are thinking, “Water Chestnuts, oh gross!” No, these are seriously delicious and anything wrapped in bacon has to be, right? Give it a chance you might surprise yourself. The sauce on it is amazing and gives it an incredible flavor.

White Chocolate Popcorn

This one is obviously for the kids (who am I kidding, it’s more for the adults). It’s really yummy and if you’ve never had it, then today’s the day. It’s simple, 3 ingredients and my 9-year-old daughter makes it all the time. When we have parties this is our go-to snack since it makes so much and is the perfect sweet treat.

Be sure to share what your favorite Super Bowl treat is and let us know how you are spending game day. We love hearing from you.
