Everyone loves the Super Bowl, right? Yeah, but for different reasons. Football fans love the Super Bowl because to them it’s the singular most important sporting event of the year. Bettors love the Super Bowl because Super Bowl betting odds are fun to try their luck at.
Even casual sports fans and people who don’t really watch sports enjoy the Super Bowl because it’s a fun social event. The biggest draw at nearly every social event is the food, and this is especially true of Super Bowl parties. Super Bowl parties are famous for their snacks, so I’ve decided to make a list of the top five best Super Bowl snacks of all time.
Nachos are a classic Super Bowl snack. They are pretty simple to make, they are not time-consuming, and there are a lot of different variations and different versions of them.
There is no one set nachos recipe; you can basically put whatever you want on nachos, depending on what you’re going for. Almost every Super Bowl party will have some version of nachos, and that’s what makes it a classic.
Seven-layer dip is another dish that is not difficult to make, and that is why it is perfect for Super Bowl parties. It is also very versatile and very simple. There are even specific Super Bowl seven-layer dip recipes.
All you have to do is get your basic ingredients, like refried beans, sour cream, salsa, cheese, and guacamole, and layer them all up in a dish. It is delicious, it keeps for a long time, it is good cold, and how can you not love it? Eat it with some good old tortilla chips, and you are more than happy.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
Buffalo chicken dip is another dish you will find at every single Super Bowl party. This one provides a great contrast to the other dishes because it, unlike a lot of other snacks, is served warm, usually in a baking dish fresh out of the oven or in a crockpot or something.
Even though this dip sounds like it would be a little more involved than the other dishes on this list, it really is not. All you have to do is throw some shredded chicken, hot sauce, cream cheese, ranch dressing, and blue cheese crumbles in a baking dish, stir it all up, and stick it in the oven until it is warm enough.
Pigs in a Blanket
Pigs in a blanket are certainly a snack that requires a little bit more work than the rest of these snacks, but the little bit of extra effort is definitely more than worth it. What is not to like about little hot dogs wrapped up in flaky croissants?
They are good warm and cold, there is a variety of sauces you can make to go with them, they are fun and bite-sized, and it is way too easy to eat way too much of them. Plus, if you are lazy (like me) you can always buy frozen pigs in a blanket and just stick them in the oven.
Chips and Dip
The term chips and dip is a little bit vague, but I think it is safe to say that every single Super Bowl party, and even every single football party, will certainly have chips and dip, guaranteed.
Whether it be chips and salsa, chips and guacamole, or potato chips and onion dip, there are a bunch of different kinds of chip and dip combinations to have at your Super Bowl party. You could even have all of them! These are definitely the easiest snacks to make, too. All you have to do is go buy chips and a dip of your choice. That’s it!
