The Easiest Recipes for Super Bowl Sunday

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

Everyone knows that the best part of the Super Bowl is the Super Bowl parties (especially since the Patriots aren’t playing), and the best part of the Super Bowl parties is the food. The Super Bowl is a great excuse to eat lots of unhealthy food and drink beer with your friends, and to me nothing says Super Bowl food like chips and dips.

There are so many options and they are super easy to make (or buy) when you decide to have people over last minute and you have never used or don’t have a kitchen. So here are a few of my favorite store-bought and homemade options for you to try out this Super Bowl Sunday.

1. Trader Joe’s Spinach and Artichoke Dip

This stuff is ridiculously amazing and if you’re trying to be healthy (boo), you can dip vegetables in it as well. However, I do not recommend getting the “skinny” version because it tastes bad. Kale is not your friend in this case.

2. Buffalo Chicken Dip

No Super Bowl party in my room is complete without this super easy and delicious buffalo chicken dip. This is most definitely the most amazing thing ever and the perfect way you can get your wing fix in without having to wait a million hours for delivery on Super Bowl Sunday. Find the recipe here.

3. Salsa con Queso

This may be the trashiest dip ever, but no judgment until you try it. All you need to do is combine Velveeta and your favorite salsa and microwave it until it is all melted together. There are lots of other variations with real cheeses, but nothing tastes as good as Velveeta, trust me.

4. Seven Layer Dip

I love seven layer dip for Super Bowl parties because I always had them growing up, but they are also a great option for something cold. While this dip might seem like a lot of ingredients, they are all premade and store bought so you can basically just layer them all up and you’re done. You can also make it with or without meat for vegetarians and best part is that it makes a great leftover. Find the recipe here.

5. Mexican Dip (Texas Trash Dip)

This is also a super yummy Mexican inspired dip that basically requires no effort to make. I’ve heard it called a lot of different names, so you might have had it before and not even realized. It looks pretty questionable while being made, but it is definitely delicious and has always been the first thing to go at our past few Super Bowl parties. Find the recipe here.
