Winning Snacks for a Super Bowl Crowd

For the vast majority of Americans, Super Bowl Sunday is a national holiday. Big gatherings, team jerseys, and food. Lots and lots of food. In fact, according to Wikipedia, roughly 28 million pounds of chips are consumed just on this day. Add to that 1.25 billion chicken wings and 8 million pounds of guacamole! 

Perhaps you're looking for some great ideas to add to the menu. Read on! 

Artichoke Dip

  • 2 cans of non-marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1 can of diced green chilis
  • 1 c. shredded parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients in a small baking dish and bake for 20 minutes at 400°. Serve with tortilla chips.

 

Dill Pickle & Ham Pinwheels

  • ½ lb. thinly-sliced ham
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 4 large whole dill pickles

Pat pickles dry with a paper towel. Cover each pickle with 1 oz. of the cream cheese & wrap with ¼ of the ham. Repeat with the remaining pickles & refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Slice into 1" pieces & enjoy!

 

Tequila-Spiked Salsa

  • 2 c. chopped, seeded tomato
  • 1 c. chopped onion
  • 1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 c. peeled, chopped avocado
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp. tequila (optional!)
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine all ingredients & toss gently. Serve with tortilla chips.

 

Buffalo Chicken Dip

  • 10 oz. chicken breasts, boiled & shredded
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 c. ranch dressing
  • 3/4 c. (or more based on taste/preferences)
  • pepper sauce (e.g. Frank's Red Hot®)
  • 1-1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Place shredded chicken & hot sauce in skillet & heat over medium heat until heated through. Stir in cream cheese & ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended & warm. Mix in shredded cheese & stir until melted. Transfer to the crockpot to keep warm & serve with tortilla chips.

 

Oreo Popcorn

  • 20 Oreo cookies
  • 2 bags of microwave popcorn, popped
  • 2 c. white chocolate chips

Place Oreos in a large Ziploc bag and smash. Heat white chocolate chips in microwave on high for 30-second intervals up to 2-3 minutes, stirring until melted. Mix popcorn & melted chocolate in a large bowl until well-combined. Slowly add the cookies & mix. Turn out on waxed paper until cool. Break into pieces & enjoy.
