Plan Your Super Bowl Food Ideas

While game day is all about football, we can’t deny that food is just as important. And this selection of finger-lickin’ snacks, appetizers, and meals will help you bring your “A” game to the party. But first, here’s a quick guideline to plan out your Super Bowl menu and party essentials.

  • Select the best appetizers. Super Bowl is all about finger foods! So make sure you have a solid selection of appetizers laid out across your table for everyone to nibble on throughout the game. Have fun with different flavors, textures, and colors.
  • For a bigger party, plan communal meals. Aside from appetizers, a bigger crowd will most likely need a bit more oopmh to fill their stomachs. Think build-your-own tacos (or wraps with tortillas or lettuce leaves), and plates of colorful chicken kabobs or grilled shrimp skewers.
  • Organize all your servingware a day before. This will help you plan the layout of your food on the table. Also, don’t forget to make what you can ahead of time, such as slow cooker meat or easy dips like hummus. This will make your game day morning much less stressful.

  • Pico De Gallo: This classic chunky salsa is perfect for something a bit more refreshing.

Communal Meals For A Large Super Bowl Party

If you’ve got a large crowd, think communal meals where they can build, grab, and go! This can mean building your own tacos (with some of the above dips as condiments), or a homemade pizza where it’s easy to grab a slice.

  • Chicken Fajitas: All you need is 30 minutes to whip up a big batch, then serve with tortillas and condiments.Alternatively, you could also make shrimp fajitas!
  • Cauliflower Pizza: While this one takes a bit more work, the results are worth it for the best low-carb, gluten-free pizza.
  • Best Ever Chili: Good news — a big pot of beef chili always makes for an easy (yet delicious) way to feed a crowd. But you could always switch it up with my turkey chili or vegetarian chili!
  • Carne Asada + Carne Asada Tacos: Make sure to marinate your steak earlier in the day. This will give it time to soak up all those delicious Mexican flavors.
  • Carnitas + Carnitas Tacos: Thanks to your slow cooker, you’ll have super tender and juicy carnitas that’s perfect for tacos!
