Top Rated Super Bowl Recipes
Guac, salsa, queso, sure, these dips rock, but my Mom makes a damn tasty clam dip that's a little less mainstream. "It's usually for company, or in the fall," she explained. "I make it almost always around the holidays. It's great for New Year's because it counts in the Feast of the Seven Fishes. It's a party food."She's been making this clam dip for 20 years, and she said it's something, "people always, always like. It's a Super Bowl food." Twenty years of people enjoying something is a pretty good track record. To me, this is one of those perfect examples of tradition versus technique. Reviewing the recipe, I'd say, given classical training, I'd hold back the clams 'til the garlic and onions were translucent. But, know what? As my Pop says, "I've never heard anyone complain about that."He's right. This dip is great on thin crackers that don't take up room in your stomach, so you can eat more clam dip. We like Waterthins' Fine Wafer Crackers or 34° Crispbread. So, where did the recipe come from? It's one of those legacy recipes Mom said probably came from something she read, but until now has just been written on an index card in a plastic red box in the kitchen. Now you can use it too. Thanks, Mom.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Dips.

12 great salads to round out your Super Bowl 50 buffet: Best of Recipe Box
We’re closing in on the Super Bowl the big showdown between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. For a lot of people, the game calls for a party filled with plenty of great snacks. But with all those hot wings, nachos and bowls of chili, you may want to offer some lighter fare to round out your party buffet. These 12 salads lighten things up a little, while staying in the spirit of the Super Bowl.
Sundried Tomato and Pesto Potato Salad
No Super Bowl buffet is complete without at least one potato salad. Instead of one made with heaps of mayonnaise and mustard, opt for this Italian-themed version. Chopped sun-dried tomatoes give the salad a nice pop of color. If you're put off by the high cost of pine nuts, the dressing can be made with blanched slivered almonds with similar results.
Mediterranean Wheat Berry and Bean Salad
Mediterranean Wheat Berry and Bean Salad
Looking for a Super Bowl salad with a little heft? You can’t miss with this hearty combination of nutty wheat berries and protein-packed Great Northern beans. The addition of spicy harissa gives the dressing the sort of kick you want on game day.
This is an upscale -- and much tastier -- version of the cold sesame noodle salad that used to come free with takeout orders at some Chinese restaurants. It’s a great addition to a Super Bowl spread because it’s got the spice that football fans crave, and it can be made the day before, allowing the flavors to blend.
Cabbage and Carrot Slaw
Strategic Cooking columnist Matthew Card came up with this terrific slaw, which makes a great topping to Super Bowl sandwiches or as a cool counterpoint to spicy buffet fare. The dressing can be made a day in advance, and tossed with the vegetables just before serving.
Best Super Bowl Recipes
The Super Bowl is this Sunday and no matter who you’re rooting for, you’re going to need the appropriate game day fuel. These delicious recipes are tested, easy, and definitely palate pleasers!
Seven Layer Mexican Dip
Even if you think you’ve seen this recipe before, you’ve never had it like this, and it’s the first item to completely disappear from the party table, guaranteed.
16 oz. container sour cream (do not use low fat)
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 packet taco seasoning mix
2 ripe avocados
Juice of ½ lime
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 – 9 oz. cans bean dip (found in the chips aisle of your supermarket), or one 16 oz. can refried beans
1 large tomato seeded and chopped
8 oz. package shredded yellow Cheddar cheese
10-12 large black olives, sliced
3 scallions, finely chopped (green parts only)
1 chopped Jalapeño pepper if you like a “kick” to it! (optional)
Tortilla chips, or “scoop” style tortilla chips
In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, taco seasoning and mayonnaise and mix well. Chill in refrigerator while preparing rest of dip. In a separate bowl, mash ripe avocados with lime juice and garlic salt. Set aside.
Open cans of bean dip and spread in an even layer on the bottom of a glass pie plate or similar style dish (or layer in a trifle dish, as pictured). Next, carefully spread the guacamole in another even layer on top of the bean layer. Spread the sour cream mixture for the top layer, ensuring to spread to the edges. Top with cheese, tomatoes, scallions, and olives. Cover, and chill for 1 hour before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.
Easy Crock Pot Buffalo Wings
Wings just got super easy!
12 -14 chicken wings, fresh or frozen and thawed
1 – 12 oz. bottle Frank’s™ Buffalo Red Hot Wings Sauce (be sure it’s the “Wings Sauce”)
Place wings in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on High for 2.5 hours.
After 2.5 hours, remove juices from crockpot. Pour Buffalo Wings Sauce over the chicken. Cover, and cook for 1 hour more on High heat setting. Serve with carrot and celery sticks, and blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping.
Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Kielbasa
This recipe is so simple, you might think we forgot some ingredients because there are only two. But they create magic in your slow cooker (and see how many people don’t believe you when you tell them it’s just two ingredients!) Now, watch them disappear.
3 pounds Kielbasa, cut into 1″ pieces
1 pound box dark brown sugar
Place everything in a slow cooker and stir to combine. Cook on low heat for 5 hours. Can be served directly from the slow cooker (set to warm) on the party food table.
Best Ever Clam Dip
Even guests who say they don’t like clam dip try this and are hooked. Serve with pretzel logs and kettle cooked chips.
2 8 oz. packages full-fat cream cheese, softened
1 6.5 oz. can Snow’s® minced clams, liquid reserved
1 6.5 oz can Snow’s® chopped clams, drained
1 teaspoon Adolph’s® Meat Tenderizer Seasoned With Spices
1 small clove garlic, pressed through a garlic press
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
In a large mixing bowl, using an electric beater (or use a stand mixer fitted with a paddle), combine cream cheese, the minced clams with broth, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and spices, until thoroughly combined and no lumps. When thoroughly mixed, stir in the can of drained chopped clams. Cover and chill at least 3 hours before serving. Serve with chips and pretzel rods.
Bacon-Wrapped Cheese Bombs
This recipe is definitely a game-changer. Once you introduce these bombs to your friends, they’ll demand them every time.
1 tube large flaky style refrigerator biscuits
1 16 oz block of Mozzarella cheese, cut into 1″ cubes
16 slices bacon (1 per bomb)
Vegetable oil for frying
Pull each biscuit in half so you have two round discs (for a total of 16). Place a cheese cube in the center of each half. Fold dough around cheese cube and pinch well to seal. Shape into ball.
Wrap one slice of bacon around each ball, trying to cover all the dough with bacon. Secure with toothpick.
Fry each ball until bacon is brown and crisp, turning frequently. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm, with your choice of dipping sauce (Honey Mustard, Ranch, hot sauce — the sky’s the limit) or plain.

Chili Garlic Baked Sweet Potato Chips
Can’t have a party without chips — even if that means transferring your chip bowl to smaller, one-person bowls.
Recipe by Lauren Miyashiro
2 medium sweet potatoes, thinly sliced
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. mustard powder
2 tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 green onions, finely sliced
⅔ cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place two wire racks on two large rimmed baking sheets. Toss sweet potatoes in oil until evenly coated.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together cornstarch, spices, salt and pepper. Add sweet potatoes and toss until evenly coated in spice mixture.
Place sweet potatoes on wire racks in a single layer. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, until crisp and dry. (They’ll continue to crisp as they cool.)
While the sweet potatoes cool, fold green onions into sour cream and serve with chips.
Super Bowl food: Best recipes for your party, with snacks from Kansas City, San Francisco and Miami
We are a day away from Super Bowl LIV as the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are preparing to face off for a chance at the title and the Lombardi Trophy. When it comes to the Super Bowl, some fans are drawn in to the game itself, others are mostly excited to watch the ads that companies spend millions on, and some are just there for the food at parties.
No matter your interest, food tends to be at the center of the biggest Sunday in sports.
With the Super Bowl taking place in Miami this year and the teams jetting in from Missouri and California, here are some foods from the three areas, as well as some classics, to have at your Super Bowl party or to bring to a LIV celebration. These recipes will not only impress your guests with taste and presentation, they'll also be so on-theme.
Cuban-style ropa vieja: If you want to give a nod to the Miami flair of the Super Bowl, Cuban-style ropa vieja is a good place to start. This flavorful dish is easy to make with this recipe from Alwaysorderdessert.com and will switch things up from ordinary tailgate food.
Cuban black bean-and-rice mojo burgers, mango slaw, garlic tostones: Want to serve burgers with a Miami twist? This recipe from HalfBakedHarvest.com provides a game-day classic dish that just so happens to be meatless. This burger is perfect for the vegetarians in the group, since many dishes on Super Bowl Sunday tend to involve meat, but it is also one even meat-lovers will enjoy. It's accompanied by a tropical slaw and tostones, instead of your typical chips.
Kansas City-inspired recipes
Kansas City baked beans: These are the perfect side to any Super Bowl meal. The unique flavor comes from brisket burnt ends. Here is an easy-to-follow recipe from TheSpruceEats.com.
Kansas City-style barbecue: For the meat lovers in the group, Kansas City-style barbecue is the way to go. While many true carnivores denounce the use of ketchup on BBQ, if you want to honor Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has an obsession with the condiment, get that ketchup out. This recipe for Kansas City-style ribs from KevinIsCooking.com is sure to be a party hit.
San Francisco-inspired recipes
Clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl: Sourdough bread is a favorite around the San Francisco area. Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl is a Bay Area staple and a delicious addition to the festivities. This ChristinasCucina.com recipe is the perfect dish to serve up to guests.
Ghirardelli-stuffed brownie sundaes: Ghiradelli was founded in San Francisco, so it is only fitting to have a dessert based around their chocolate. MyBakingAddiction.com has a stuffed brownie sundae using Ghirardelli chocolate that will satisfy anyone's sweet tooth.
Classic Super Bowl foods
A Super Bowl party would seem empty without these classics. Grab some chips and salsa, of course, but if you are looking to make something a bit more involved than that, here are some recipes to serve up for the big day.
Wings: To bring up football without bringing up wings seems against everything we stand for, so wings are a must for the party. Delish.com has a classic Buffalo-style recipe that will keep you from waiting forever for delivery from a local spot for the SB staple.
Slow-cooker Chex Mix: If you need something to nervously munch on as you watch your team in the most highly anticipated game of the year, this slow-cooker Chex Mix recipe from Delish.com is just the thing.
Pigs in a blanket: One of 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's favorite foods is Chicago-style hot dogs, and while this is not exactly that, it's the next best thing. Pigs in a blanket is just the crowd-pleaser you need to complete the menu.
