It’s that time of year again, kiddoes–when we all eat a bunch of awesome food at someone else’s house and cheer the Colts on to victory. If you need some suggestions for what to take to your friend’s party, don’t despair. Here are some classic Superbowl recipes drawn from the archives that you can be sure are cheap, easy to make crowd-pleasing favorites for the big day.
- Chicken chili: Best to make the day before and heat up when you get to the party.
- Southwest potato salad: Make it the day of or the night before; the flavors just keep getting better as it hangs out in your fridge.
- Cast-iron cornbread or Individual corn muffins: They’re both super easy and go great with chili or on their own. Best served warm.
- Spinach artichoke dip: Make it right before you leave the house and put it in the oven at the party. Serve with crusty bread, crackers, or chips.
- Salsa: Real salsa is on a whole different plane of existence than that stuff that comes out of a jar. Be a real friend and give your friends real food.
- Baby coffee walnut cakes: Yum. Yuuummmm! Individually sized and crunchy with carmelized sugar.
- Black-bottom cupcakes: Again, yummm. They don’t have frosting so they travel well.
- Individual apple pies: If you’re feeling ambitious and have some time, these are a fantastically delicious alternative to making an entire pie.
