Soft and chewy on the inside, and salty with a delightful crust on the outside, these mini pretzel poppers are downright irresistible. Play around with gourmet mustard, too: try harissa or curry powder for an extra kick.
Classic cheesy bread gets a major makeover in this admittedly indulgent pepperoni pizza loaf made with fluffy, slightly sweet King’s Hawaiian Bread. It’s a Super Bowl appetizer fit for a king—or quarterback.
Baked instead of fried, these spicy-sweet chicken wings are marinated in a mixture of gochujang (a spicy Korean red pepper paste) and pomegranate molasses, and then flavored with ginger, honey, plum vinegar, sesame seeds, and cashews. Basically they’re like nothing you’ve ever tasted before—salty, tart, sweet, spicy, and ridiculously delicious.
The beauty of these barbeque pork sliders is how incredibly easy they are to make. All they require is pork tenderloin (or whatever cut you prefer), a can of soda or beer, and barbecue sauce. If you want to get fancy, top them with homemade coleslaw, pickles, or whatever you like. But who needs to worry about that… you’ve got a game to watch.
With a name like Buffalo Chicken Beer Cheese Dip, you know this recipe isn’t healthy, but Super Bowl Sunday is one of those times when it's okay to indulge. Made with five types of cheese, hot sauce, and IPA beer, this dip is the way to a man’s heart.
This slow-cooker recipe takes less than five minutes to put together, but it’s remarkably rewarding after it cooks for six to eight hours. Filled with chili-spiced brown rice, black beans, corn, and tender bites of shredded chicken, this is a great chili alternative for game-day eating. Just leave your cooker out on the counter and let your guests help themselves. Top with cheese, sour cream, green onions, or whatever you like!
Beer-candied bacon (or "sweet and salty little bites of heaven," as we like to call them) are magical: They disappear instantly. Make twice as much as you think a reasonable group could consume… because there’s nothing reasonable about these.
We love classic guacamole, but sometimes you’ve got to give people a little surprise. This avocado feta dip is thick, creamy, and flavorful. The feta cheese adds the perfect amount of saltiness, and the lime juice keeps it from turning brown. We can’t think of a more perfect partner for pita chips.
Many of our favorite south-of-the-border flavors are packed into these stuffed jalapeños, but the surprising addition of hummus sets them apart and makes them a healthy alternative to your standard-issue Super Bowl nachos.
