March Madness is upon us, and for some of us that means lots of basketball and brackets. That's all well and good, but as far as I'm concerned, the best part is the March Madness snacks that coincide. Hello, how else would anyone get through an entire sporting event?

I'm not going to pretend I'm totally up on my college basketball, but it is one of the few sports I can actively tolerate and even follow (sort of). I grew up in Los Angeles when the Lakers were in their prime, so some affinity for the sport was practically required. Even if you aren't a die-hard fan, the quick pace, competition, and hometown pride that permeate the madness can suck anyone in. Whether you're watching the games from home or throwing a marathon viewing party, these 20 recipes are just what you need to amp up the experience. I'm still not totally sure how brackets work, but I do know about snacks. We're going for the win, and you're halfway there with a slam dunk menu. No more puns, I promise.
