50 Easy Appetizers for The Super Bowl

Teriyaki Chicken Wings on Wooden Board

Chicken wings are an essential part of game day. So full disclosure: there are multiple wings recipes on the list!

And I had to start with these baked teriyaki wings because they’re just so scrummy.

I know buffalo wings are the norm (check out #50 for my favorite recipe!), but they’re not for everyone – especially kids.

If you want something flavorful yet mild, check these out.

Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings

Here’s another recipe you’ll love – and this one has a kick to it!

Jerk seasoning is super unique, and it pairs so well with chicken wings because you get the juicy meat inside and a nice crispy edge to every bite.

Believe it or not, I first learned about these sliders from my grandma.

She may be pushing 80, but she has the stomach of a 20-year-old frat boy. And she loves party food. 

These are some of her favorite appetizers, and she makes them for everything.

They have a phenomenal flavor – sweet and tangy with a nice cheesy finish. Plus, they’re easy to make and pretty filling.

You’ll probably get messy while eating them, but that’s okay. The messiness makes them yummier. 

Buffalo wings are incredible, but have you tried buffalo chicken dip? It’s thick, creamy, and full of all the flavors that make buffalo chicken so good. 

Whip this up, pop open a bag of tortillas, and you’re all set. 

Cowboy crack is another delectable dip that’s beyond simple – you need just five ingredients.

Mix cream cheese with sausage, cheddar, Rotel, and frozen corn, and it’s ready in about ten minutes.

Then, leave it in the slow cooker for a couple of hours. How easy is that?

Nachos are a hugely popular choice for Game Day parties. But unfortunately, they can be a hassle to make.

Not these nachos, though. 

You can have them ready to go in about 15 minutes. And you’ll need fewer than ten ingredients to prepare them.

A Slice of Hanky Panky

Ignore the funky name for a minute, and just check out this ingredient list: ground beef, spicy sausage, cheese, onions, and spices.

Simple yet super meaty with a nice bit of heat to wake you up between downs, it’s such a fun recipe.

Once it’s cooked and gooey, spread it over rye bread and go to town!

Pull-apart bread is one of my favorite party appetizers. It’s just so much fun!

This particular recipe is also cheesy, garlicky, and brimming with scallions. So, in short, it’s incredible.

Jalapeño Popper Dip

Forget stuffing, breading, and frying little chilies, and make this incredible jalapeño popper dip instead.

It’s got all the same tastes and textures, but it’s ready for the oven in minutes!

Loaded baked potatoes are great and all, but if you want something finger-food-friendly, these loaded tater-tot skewers are where it’s at!

Crunchy and smothered in cheese and bacon, these will be everyone’s new favorite. 

Crabbies Made of Cheesy Crab Meat Filling

Cheesy crab meat on crunchy toast? Yes, please!

Crabbies were all the rage once upon a time, and I think it’s time we bring them back!

You only need seven ingredients (including salt and garlic), and they’re so simple to whip up, even the kids can help.

Warming up frozen pigs in a blanket may be convenient. But they won’t be nearly as tasty as these homemade treats. 

Fortunately, you can make these almost as easily.

They require only three ingredients, and one of those is cheese.

Yep, that’s right. Cheesy pigs in a blanket. They’re just as good as you’re imagining.

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Time for another chicken wing recipe, and this one is sweet, spicy, sticky, and to die for.

If you’re a fan of spicy food but don’t like the acidity of hot sauce, you have to try these!

Sriracha has a whole other flavor profile, tingling your tongue without the sharp smell of Tabasco.

And when you add honey to the mix? It’s impossible to resist.

As I’ve already mentioned, I adore pull-apart bread. So I had to include another!

This recipe will be better for you if you prefer meaty pepperoni to garlicky cheese. 

It takes less than an hour to make and still has plenty of cheese and garlic deliciousness.

As you can imagine, it tastes a lot like pepperoni pizza, so be sure to make enough for everyone. 

Seven-layer dips are always a hit. This one is taco-themed and features loads of yummy Mexican flavors.

If you like burritos, tacos, or nachos, you’ll also appreciate this divine dip. 

Tired of regular nachos and want something different? Try totchos!

(Tater tots + nachos = totchos.)

They’re like nachos, only you’ll use tater tots instead of tortillas. That makes them way more filling with the best texture!

This recipe is for anyone who loves chili cheese dogs.

It’s thick, robust, cheesy, and full of flavor.

Just be sure you purchase sturdy chips for dipping. The thinner varieties won’t hold up under the strain of this heavy dip. 

Little Smokies Wrapped in Bacon

Meat-wrapped meat is a winner on any occasion. But these little smokies take it to a whole other level of yum.

Start with little smokies for the smoky sausage flavor, then wrap them with streaky bacon for a salty kick.

The third (and final) ingredient is brown sugar! Sprinkle it over the top and watch it caramelize in the oven. Yum!

Despite its name, this dip is an inexpensive and extra-yummy appetizer option.

It’s creamy and rich, with bacon, cheese, green onions, and more. Everyone who tries it will come back for more. 

Sausage Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

I think the title says it all!

Sausage and cream cheese rolled in flaky crescent rolls is about as scrumptious as it gets!

There’s also cheddar cheese in the mix for a nice gooey finish.

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Take your stuffed mushroom game to the next level, and add crab meat!

They’re meaty, cheesy, salty, and chock-full of tender crab meat that’ll put a smile on anyone’s face.

Is there anything better than old-fashioned beer-battered onion rings? I don’t think so!

These are just like the ones you know and love from your favorite sports bar. And now, you can make them at home.

Are you in the mood for something sweet? You can’t go wrong with this football peanut butter dip.

It packs all the peanut butter and chocolatey goodness you could want. 

Plus, it looks like a football! What could be more festive?!

It’s straightforward to make, too. It’s like a cheese ball, only with peanut butter and chocolate. 

Black bean dip is a warm, earthy spread you can whip up in 15 minutes or less.

It’s hearty and garlicky, with notes of cilantro. Meanwhile, the cayenne pepper adds a little kick of heat. 

Bologna Cake

If you’re not from the south, you might not be familiar with bologna cake. So let me introduce you!

It’s a pretty simple stack of bologna and cream cheese layered to make it look like a cake.

Fun, creamy, meaty, and super simple, serve it with crackers, and you’re all set.

You can never have too many dip recipes, so here’s one that’s rich, hot, ooey-gooey, and impossible to resist.

Take everything you love about pizza, and put it in a dish with homemade garlic bread dippers.

What more could you want on game day?

As much as I love cool, creamy dips, there’s something so much more satisfying about a dish full of hot cheesy goodness.

And this Reuben dip truly has it all!

I’m talking salty corned beef, crunchy sauerkraut, tangy-sweet Thousand Island dressing, and melty Swiss cheese. Delish!

I’ll never turn down a blooming onion. But this blooming quesadilla is even more exciting.

I mean, just look at it! 

There are enough cheesy, chicken-filled quesadillas here to feed your whole party. Bonus points if you make homemade salsa for the center.

Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings

Savory, zesty, and full of bite, these lemon pepper chicken wings are guaranteed to please.

I love that these are dry wings (aka, not smothered in sauce) because they’re less messy and way more crispy!

And they’re as easy as fry, bake, and season!

Goat cheese is one of the most polarizing cheeses around. People either love it or hate it.

But this roasted garlic and goat cheese dip will be a big hit for everyone.

It features tangy cheese with earthy, punchy garlic, making it incredibly thick and breathtakingly strong.

You won’t need a lot to satisfy you, so a little goes a long way. 

Throwing a Game Day party and expecting a few people you don’t know? Ranch dip is always a safe bet.

It’s easy to make and almost universally loved. 

This recipe kicks it up a notch by adding bacon and cheddar. Serve it with chips, veggies, or toasted baguette slices. 

These spicy, Sriracha-filled spring rolls will liven up any party.

Serve them alone, with dipping sauces, or as a side item. They work well with pretty much anything.

These crunchy, chicken-stuffed wontons take a bit of time to get right. So they aren’t one of those appetizers you can whip up in five minutes or less. 

Even so, they’re well worth your time.

They have an incredible taste and texture and are the perfect single-serve snack food. 

Plus, the whole batch still takes less than an hour to make, so they aren’t that time-consuming.

Give them a try if you want something different at your next Super Bowl party.

These succulent little delicacies will be the most popular item on the table.

They’re sweet-n-savory delights overflowing with salty umami goodness. 

I don’t know who originally thought to combine bacon and shrimp, but whoever they are, they deserve all the medals.

Because these five-ingredient appetizers are the stuff

These crunchy goat cheese balls have gooey centers and tons of flavor. When you pair them with robust buffalo sauce, they’re phenomenal. 

As long as you don’t mind a bit of tanginess, you’ll love these tiny cheese balls. 

Appetizing Chipotle Guacamole with Tacos

Need a healthier dip option? Guacamole is the way to go.

You can make this simple guacamole recipe in mere moments with no cooking required.

Simply mash the avocados, then add the other ingredients. Easy peasy!

Paula Deen Crab Cakes on a Platter

Tender, tasty, and terrifically simple, these crab cakes are a must-make

And while the ingredient list is a little long, it’s mostly seasonings. Plus, all you do is mix everything together, then pan-fry until golden.

Serve them with lemon wedges and tartar sauce. Delish!

Soft Pretzel Bites

Forget those crunchy pretzels from a bag and make these soft pretzel bites instead. I promise, they’ll be gone in a flash!

They take a bit of time (kneading, proofing, baking, etc.), and they need a baking soda bath to get that signature flavor.

But since they’re bites, there’s no need to shape them – that’ll save you a ton of time!

Velveeta Sausage Dip

As you can tell from the picture, this isn’t your everyday queso. Heck, this isn’t even your special weekend queso.

Nope, this is something much, much more. 

There is cheese dip in there, but that’s the least of what this recipe has to offer. It’s a hearty, sausage-packed queso dip with Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilis.

That’s an insane amount of flavor. 

And don’t be shy when adding your toppings. Go all out! That’s the best way to enjoy this decadent queso dip. 

Homemade Deep Fried Popcorn Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce

Popcorn shrimp is an excellent choice for your Super Bowl party. It’s crunchy, juicy, succulent, and extra scrummy with sweet and sour sauce on the side.

Tasty and filling, the kids and adults will go nuts for these. And they make an excellent weeknight dinner option, too.   

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

Here’s another dry chicken wing recipe, only this time, they’re salty, cheesy, and garlicky to the max!

You’ll lightly coat the wings in flour, so they get nice and crispy in the hot oil. Then bake until they’re cooked all the way through.

Finally, toss them in a seriously addictive garlic parmesan sauce and dig in!

Are you guys tired of buffalo chicken yet? I hope not because these wraps are phenomenal.

They’re stuffed with bacon and chicken and overflowing with buttery buffalo sauce. 

Add some fresh tomatoes into the mix, and these are ready to eat. They taste so good that even people who don’t like buffalo sauce often enjoy them. 

This recipe’s author calls these “fried little pieces of heaven” “addictively delicious.” And he couldn’t be more right with his description. 

These crunchy little treats are something the whole neighborhood will love.

Just be sure you make a ton of them because everyone wants at least half a dozen.

We all know how yummy loaded sweet potatoes are. Unfortunately, they don’t make the best appetizers.

So turn them into loaded sweet potato bites instead. 

They’re just as spectacular but come in much smaller serving sizes.

Remember that football-shaped peanut butter ball above? This is like that, only with cheese, onions, and bacon instead of peanut butter and chocolate.

It’s the savory, herby counterpart to the sweet football above. Make both, and see which one people like best. 

My prediction? They’ll devour them both without leaving more than crumbs. 

Turning chicken parmesan into sliders was an inspired idea. These tasty, cheesy sliders are ideal for anyone who loves Italian food. 

They feature plenty of robust flavors and the juiciest chicken (with the crunchiest crust, to boot!)

You won’t see many people turning down a second one if you offer. 

Everyone loves tacos; it’s why Taco Tuesday is so popular!

Of course, full-size tacos are messy, especially for a party with lots of people. So pack all of that traditional taco flavor into tiny, unmessy cups.

You can make them with as few as five ingredients. Plus, you can tailor the toppings to suit your tastes. 

Firing up the grill and making burgers is common practice for most get-togethers.

But have you checked out the prices on beef lately?! Depending on the size of your crowd, that could get expensive. 

So whip them up some mini cheeseburgers instead.

They’re 100% cheeseburgers with everything that makes cheeseburgers so good. They’re just really, really small. (And adorable!)

Deviled Eggs with Pickles, Mustard, Mayo and Paprika

The kids might not want any of these little eggs, but the grown-ups will love them!

They’re rich and creamy with a fabulous blend of tangy pickles, warm paprika, zippy mustard, and hearty pimentos.

Make a big batch and keep them in the fridge until kick-off!

You didn’t think I’d get through 50 whole Super Bowl appetizer recipes and not give you a recipe for buffalo wings, right?

These particular wings have a lot more heat than most, and they’ll make quite a mess – in the best way possible.

If you love buffalo sauce and spicy food, this recipe is perfect for you.
