game day menu

Superbowl Sunday!!! What a fun and exciting afternoon, and with a such a good excuse to have a big party and lots of fun how could someone involve themselves in this joyous occasion. Nothing like noshing down on buffalo wings, hoagies, pizza, chips… now I’m getting hungry.

Stressing about food? Not a problem – here are some fun and easy foods that will be at my party this year!

Chili is a no-brainer. And so easy to serve to a crowd! Make a huge batch and keep it in the crockpot on low. Add toppings like sour cream, shredded cheese, bacon crumbles and chopped green onions and you’re good to go! Everyone can make their own bowl when they get hungry and you can enjoy the game instead of slaving in front of the stove!

Guacamole – if you’ve never made it yourself, give it a try! You’ll be amazed at how easy it is! Its a great compliment to the chili!

This Jalapeno Popper Dip is gluten-free and you can make it in advance too! Just pop it in the oven when you’re ready to party.

Don’t forget — Superbowl parties often involve finger foods, people sharing dishes like salsa and dips and food sitting at room temperature for long period of time. FoodSafety.gov highlights four simple steps to food safety: Clean, Separate, Cook, Chill. These basic actions include cleaning the food well, keeping potential contaminates separated, cooking meats thoroughly and chilling uneaten portions. You don’t want your guests to miss the end of the game because they’re sick, right?
