This Sunday brings the long anticipated Super Bowl 50. Whether you're having a party at home, headed to the nearest sports bar, or cheering on your favorite team at a friend's house, you'll want to be appetizer ready. If you're not a Carolina or Bronco fan, you can still relish the food and the entertaining commercials. We've got the top 6 best appetizer ideas that will carry your friends and family into overtime.
What's better than a mini cheeseburger? These sliders are so ridiculously tasty that they're likely to take your attention away from the game. You can find the mini burger buns at any bakery or grocery store and you may have the rest of the ingredients in your fridge already. Try this easy and simple recipe from Kevin & Amanda and you'll certainly be the MVP of the party.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
This appetizer is a game-time staple. A fun and addictive alternative to classic chicken wings is a buffalo chicken dip in a bread bowl. Simply combine shredded rotisserie chicken, cheddar and cream cheese, buffalo sauce, and ranch dressing and pour the mixture into a bread bowl. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until warm and bubbly, about 20 minutes. You may want to use fresh veggies or a sliced baguette for dipping. Your guests will be begging you for this recipe.
Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos
When in doubt, add bacon. Everyone knows that bacon makes everything taste better, and this theory holds true with these delicious cream cheese stuffed jalapenos. This recipe is easy to make and is sure to fire up any party. Mix cream cheese, pepper jack cheese and garlic in a bowl. Halve, clean and deseed the jalapenos and fill them with the cream cheese mixture. If you're not into jalapenos, consider using a southern favorite – okra. Wrap each half with a slice of bacon (depending on the size of your jalapenos, you may only need half a slice of bacon). Bake them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes. This appetizer is a win-win.
Football Shaped Deviled Eggs
For those craving something a bit different, you can opt for a spicy-sweet deviled egg. These are the perfect finger-food that can be made into little football shapes. Hard boil a dozen eggs and peel them once cooled. Cut them in half and remove the yolks. Mash the yolks with mayonnaise, chutney and red pepper until well blended and spoon the mixture back into middle of eggs. To turn these delicious treats into little footballs, cut fresh chives and place carefully on eggs to resemble football strings. Your friends and family are sure to fall in love with your themed creation!
Slow Cooker Beef Nachos
Slow cooker beef nachos are a delicious twist on your everyday beloved appetizer. You can make these with Carolina style barbecue or with a more Mexican influence. This appy is perfect for perpetually hungry fans. Serve these nachos with avocado and sour cream and you'll still enjoy the game even if it's NACHO team's year.
Loaded Sweet Potato Skins
You have to try this game-time favorite snack that's easy to make and hard to resist. Picture cheesy, bacon loaded goodness with a healthy twist. These sweet potato skins are filled with fiber, vitamin A and other nutrients and the orange color is sure to show your support if you're a Denver Broncos fan. Either way, there's nothing better than pigskins and potato skins.
