Super Bowl Family Appetizer Snack Recipes

Whether your family’s tuning in to peep Michigan home-girl Madonna at halftime, the new Chevy commercial (will Clint Eastwood be the new Eminem?) or – oh, yeah – the New York Giants rumble with the New England Patriots in Indianapolis this Sunday, Feb. 5, one thing’s for sure. Super Bowl XLVI calls for some serious munchies!

To find NFL-worthy contenders, we tackled our Crumbs and Food archives and intercepted a few tasty ideas from the web at large.

So blitz your fridge (or make a Hail Mary trip to the grocery store – perhaps a late-night rush to avoid the crowds?) and serve up some of these touchdown treats.

Chicken Bean Nachos

The key to killer nachos is all in the deets. Score seriously delicious tips – including quality chips, seasoned chicken and homemade refrieds – for assembling a winning batch.

Pizza Canapes

A bit of bread, tomato and shredded cheese are the key players here. This snazzy snack is choice for your VIP viewing crowd. As alternates, try cold salad or classic PB&J.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Who better to dish this one than the head chef of Hockeytown Cafe? Get the how-to from a Detroit sports restaurant staple.

Avocado Salsa

Whoever says avocado is solely for guacamole won’t see this play coming. Serve up this unexpected Taste of Home Mexican snack.

Black Bean Salsa

Another wild pass! Give it extra heft with black beans.

Green Chile Cheese Dip Appetizer

Grab some bagel chips or put on the Ritz (crackers) with this snack that has a bit more zip than the usual fare.

Aunt Phyllis’ Magnificent Cheese Ball

From tykes to college kids, this flavorful combo never fumbles in its appeal. Bonus: It’s easy to tweak. Pair it up with your fave crackers.

Tacos with a Twist

Done buffet style, this array is perfect for on-the-go grazing (set it up within a pigskin’s toss of the tube). Toss in surprises like spaghetti and chicken nuggets.
