While the most dedicated fans might disagree, watching the Super Bowl is about more than just watching the game. In the United States, whether you are an American football fan or not, the 4-hour long NFL championship is an occasion to get together with family and friends, crack open some beers, and snack on finger foods – all while the finale plays out on screen. Not to mention, watching the halftime show that features performances by famous musicians is a lot of fun! Today, many sports channels abroad also broadcast the Super Bowl live, allowing people from all over the world to watch and enjoy. Looking to throw your own Super Bowl party? Read on for ideas on popular appetizers to serve. 

An easy, customizable, and fun dish to have on the table is the oh-so-popular tray of nachos. Rather than just offering a bowl of chips, a classic nacho tray combines tortilla chips with as many toppings as your heart desires. This Loaded Nachos with Black Beans and Spicy Chickpeas recipe offers an array of colorful ingredients including black beans, chickpeas, jalapeños, and salsa. 

The snacks shouldn’t end there though. A warm bowl of freshly popped popcorn is an easy add-on, as are snacks such as pretzels and crackers. For those of age, a cold bottle of craft beer from the United States is a tasty way to quench your thirst. Our insider tip: grab a good citrus IPA if you’re looking for something light and refreshing. 

The ultimate finger foods come into play when the meat leaves the kitchen. A big-time crowd pleaser is Spicy Beef Back Ribs. The high-quality flavor of U.S. beef takes center stage, leaving you both satisfied and wanting more.  
Equally spicy, messy, and tasty are Buffalo Chicken Wings. A Super Bowl classic! Crispy pieces of chicken served with a generous dose of chili sauce will get you fired up to enjoy the game!

A Super Bowl party would not be complete without a variety of dips. From creamy guacamole to blue cheese dip – the options are endless! If you are struggling to choose just one, then the Game Day 7 Layer Dip may be the answer. This massive dip includes a layer of refried pinto beans followed by individual layers of guacamole, black beans, sour cream, salsa, and cheddar cheese. If that isn’t already enough, you can top it off with fresh leaves of cilantro and some olives. Let the game begin!
