Party Food Recipes for Super Bowl 2013

Super Bowl XLVII is just a week away! Honestly, I don’t really follow sports, but there are two things that I love about the Super Bowl: the bar food and the best 2 hours of commercials on TV. Living in Manhattan makes it difficult to throw big house parties so last year I ended up in at Boss Tweeds down in LES.

It was great, we were able to order Popeye’s Chicken and pizzas and had it delivered to the bar. However, as I mentioned, I don’t really follow sports, so while I got to pig out on some of my favorite foods, I couldn’t really pay attention to the commercials since it was just so loud.  So this year, I wanted to celebrate at home and of course cook up a storm! Good thing I found a friend with an apartment big enough to host.

Party Food Recipes for the Super Bowl

So, if you’re in the same boat as me, you’re probably trying to figure out what to prepare next week when the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens go head to head against each other. Here’s some things that come to mind for me… 

The BEST Guacamole

Baked Buffalo Wings

Easy Spinach Dip

Smoked Salmon Mousse

If you want some easy no-fuss things to prep ahead, I’d say go for the Easy Spinach Dip. It only takes 7 ingredients to make and you can make it the day before, it can go with chips, bread or veggies. It’s definitely a party favorite.

Another thing I love to make for parties, although it doesn’t seem particularly “manly” or Super Bowl appropriate is this Smoked Salmon Mousse. I love smoked salmon so it’s an easy spread to make, and I promise you that it’d get gobbled up even if it’s on the feminine side – maybe because it looks pink?

I’m also craving for a chili in this cold weather, so I might put together my chili-cookoff winning recipe overnight and bring it over to my friend’s apartment.

Are you planning to cook for the super bowl? What recipes are you preparing? And, I guess the more important question, who are you rooting for? I’m from the Bay Area, so it’s automatically the 49ers for me!
