Whether you are rooting for the Carolina Panthers or the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl this year, one thing everyone can agree on is that no game day party is complete without some delicious and easy Super Bowl recipes. The Super Bowl is one of those semi-awkward sporting events where, if your eyes aren't glued to the football game, you're literally just there for the food, beer, and the Doritos commercials. Personally, I fall in camp "snacks and commercials," so I always appreciate when my fellow partygoers come up some creative snacks to make. So, before you go buy a sad, pre-packaged jar of salsa or dry chicken fingers from your local grocery store, consider these out-of-the-box alternatives.
These Super Bowl snacks are not only easy to make, but everyone will sing your praises as party snack queen — and really, is there anything better? From beer bacon cheese dip to chorizo-stuffed mushrooms to avocado deviled eggs with pomegranate and bacon, there is something on this list for every kind of Super Bowl snacker.
