The Finger Foods

You’re going to need some finger foods for when guests arrive and to bring out sporadically throughout the game. These foods need to be quick to make, easy to eat, and delicious enough to momentarily distract your guests from the action on TV. We guarantee that every recipe here will do just that!

The Chilies

A steaming bowl of spicy chili is the perfect thing to bring out for the halftime show. Luckily, you can make chili well in advance and just reheat it before serving. A big pot of chili is also perfect for bringing to someone else’s Super Bowl potluck party!

The Main Event

Well, the game’s finished, your team one, and the halftime show rocked… but you’re not done yet! If you want your guests to hang out after the game, you’d better have something good cooking for a late supper. The main event should be something hearty, spectacular, and made in such a way that you don’t miss the entire game because you’re in the kitchen, cooking the whole time. These recipes can be made ahead of time and heated up after the game’s over or can be left cooking in the smoker or crockpot without much fuss while it’s still on.
