Hosting a Superbowl party is a great way to bring people together, but the responsibility of putting together a menu for game day can be challenging. First, the food must be easy to eat while camped out in front of the TV. A few weeks ago, High Desert Blogging posted a list of recipes to help with your menu selection, but we have found a few more that are worth sharing.
First, we have corn and black bean salsa from SimplyHealthyEats.com. We like this recipe because it’s similar to a salad. Light and refreshing, it tastes good when eaten with a fork, but it’s a substantial and chunky salsa that’s sure to please all the men in your life.
If you’re looking for something different, give the recipe for Creamy Tacos from KitchenHospitality.com a try. The final product is similar to queso dip, but with the addition of meat,beans, and corn, it makes for a hearty filling for a tortilla. We rolled ours up burrito style. The best part is that it can all be made in a crockpot. Our next selections are some stuffed jalapenos that we found over at PattyCakesPantry.com. The first one is stuffed with cream cheese and bacon and topped with crushed tortilla chips. The second is stuffed with Tuna Salad and topped with cheese before being baked in the oven. Did you know that chili is one of the most frequently served menu items at Superbowl parties? No list of menu ideas would be complete without including a few chili recipes, too.
A good thing about chili is that it can be made a couple days in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Then, pull it out and reheat it in your slow cooker on game day. The flavors tend to intensify and blend together when chili is made ahead. This means that the leftovers have more flavor than the fresh chili.
The opposite of vegan is this recipe for a paleo friendly chili from meatified. The recipe uses 5 pounds of meat, so it will keep your carnivores happy.
If you want to impress your friends with your trend setting tastes in sustainable food, check out this recipe for Yak Chili. (The recipe can also be made with chunks of beef or with venison.)
Another option is the Texas Sheath cake. I can’t believe I went my entire life without ever hearing about this delicious chocolate cake.
If you’re looking for more figure friendly and healthy dessert options, there is always the option of a fruit platter served with creamy coconut fruit dip, or Baked Maple Cinnamon Tortilla Chips served with Sweet White Bean Dip. I know that last one sounds really weird, but it was delicious. It goes well with sliced apples, too.
