Six Super Bowl Snacks

Six Super Bowl Snacks
Are you hosting a Super Bowl party this year? What game day snacks are you serving up? If you're still not sure, try one or all of these six quick and easy Super Bowl snacks.

Crackers and Dip

All you need is a few boxes of seasoned crackers and three ingredients to make your own dip. Try this quick and easy crowd pleaser on game day:

  • 2 cups Balsamic-flavored mayonnaise
  • 2 cups parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Seasoned crackers

Combine ingredients in a 1-qt baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with your favorite crackers.

Chips and French Onion Dip

You can't have too many dips as part of your Super Bowl snacks lineup. Try this recipe:

  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 package French onion dip mix
  • Potato chips, vegetables, pretzels, etc.

Combine the ingredients in a medium bowl. If desired, chill to let the flavors blend. Serve with potato chips, vegetables, pretzels and more of your favorite dippers.

Barbecue Chicken Nachos

You can't have Super Bowl snacks without a plate of cheesy nachos. Win over your friends and family with this simple recipe:

  • Plenty of tortilla chips
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

Layer the chips, cheese and chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees until the cheese melts, about 3 to 5 minutes. Top with barbecues sauce and green onions. Serve immediately.

Pigs in a Blanket

Meat is a very important part of any Super Bowl party. These are a special treat, and they're so easy to make:

  • 12 ounces fully cooked chicken or turkey sausage links
  • 8 ounces frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • Condiments (ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing)

Cut the sausages into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Cut the pastry into 1-inch by 3-inch strips. Wrap the pastry strips around the sausages. Bake on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with the condiments of your choice.

Chicken Cheese Quesadillas

Making a quesadilla that tastes as good as a restaurant's doesn't need to take hours or tremendous cooking skills. This recipe proves it:

  • 2 (10 ounce) cans chicken, shredded
  • 2 (4 ounce) cans green chilies
  • 8 10-inch tortillas
  • Plenty of cheddar cheese
  • Sprinkle of red pepper flakes
  • Salsa or sour cream

Combine the chicken and green chilies. Spread one-eighth of the mixture on one half of each tortilla. Top with cheddar cheese and sprinkle red pepper flakes, to taste. Grill in batches on a skillet over medium heat or a griddle set to 325 degrees until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Serve with salsa or sour cream.

Party Meatballs

These tangy Super Bowl snacks take very little effort to make. This is a slow cooker recipe, so get it cooking by late morning to be ready for game time.

  • 32 ounces frozen meatballs
  • 18 ounces grape jelly
  • 18 ounces barbeque sauce

Combine ingredients in a slow cooker until well blended. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. When the game starts, turn the slow cooker to "warm" and let guests serve themselves. With sidetracked friends and young children sending all sorts of things down the drain, you could end up needing a plumber this Super Bowl Sunday.
