Let me guess – the ultimate game day is coming up and it’s your turn to host the Super Bowl party this year. Despite the fact that you gather for the game (*cough* commercials *cough*) and hang out with your friends, really we all know the most important part of Super Bowl Sunday is the food. And maybe, just maybe, you want to upgrade from chips, dip, and pizza this year and are on the hunt for some unique Super Bowl recipe ideas.
Well you’re in luck, my friend, because I have a bunch for you. These recipes are so good that your friends will think you brought the ultimate game to the Super Bowl party — no matter who does or doesn’t get a touchdown this year.
Have vegan friends coming? No problem. Paleo friends? Also not an issue. People who are adamant about spending this day eating junk food? Trust me, this list has it all. From chicken wings to peanut dipping sauce, mini taco bites, and spicy grapefruit margaritas, you’re about to serve up the ultimate game day menu.
So get out that pen and paper and start making that very long Super Bowl grocery list — because it’s game time!
For an easy way to please all sorts of dieting types, set up a taco bar like this one from The Kitchn!
