Super Bowl Sunday is not only the biggest day of the year for football fans, but for any food fan.
Whether you’re into nachos, chicken wings, or dips, everyone brings out their best recipes on the day.
Here are 18 of the best Super Bowl snack recipes to make sure you start game day off right.
Easy Sheet Pan Nachos with Queso
Always a crowd-pleaser, these nachos are sure to satisfy every taste bud! Tortilla chips and shredded cheese (or a queso topping) are the basis of any good nacho recipe and can be made vegan, vegetarian, or loaded with as much meat as you want. In addition, you can top them with whatever toppings sound good to you.
Buffalo Chicken Bites
This twist on chicken wings keeps everything we love about the spicy party classic, but removes the bones and mess. Some people affectionately refer to these as ‘boneless’ wings, but I prefer just to call them what they are: Bites of delicious pan-fried chicken breast.
These buffalo chicken bites have a light and crispy coating that serves as the perfect vessel for its oozing spicy sauce. Best of all, this dish only takes 20 minutes to make from scratch, giving you plenty of time to watch the game.
This guacamole can be whipped up in a flash as it’s only three steps! Taking only ten minutes to make, most of the ingredients are household items. The fresh lime juice will really set the flavor apart from any other guacamole your guests have tasted.
Honey Chili Fries
How can you ever go wrong with potatoes? These double-fried potatoes make a great appetizer that pairs wonderfully with beer and mocktails. The sesame seeds add the perfect crunch on top and will leave you wanting more. Best of all, you can use a simple frying pan to whip them up, making for easy cleanup!
These pizza pinwheels will please every child and adult in attendance. For the kids, throw on easy toppings like cheese and pepperoni and for the adults, add on olives and peppers! These pinwheels have many flavors and offer an easy, quick cleanup as they are cooked on a lined baking sheet! They will be easy to make quickly just in case you run out of snacks.
Sausage rolls are always a crowd pleaser. Wrapped in pastry sheets, they look much fancier and complicated than they are, which makes you sure to receive many compliments! These rolls can be cut in different lengths depending on who is eating them and can be paired with many different dipping sauces.
Copycat Texas Roadhouse Fried Pickles
Who doesn’t love fried pickles? Always a crowd favorite, these tart and crunchy treats can be paired with a variety of sauces. You can use whatever frying method you’re comfortable with and have this dish fried up in only twenty minutes!
Bacon Wrapped Tater Tot Bombs
Bacon plus tator tots plus cheese equals best snack ever. This recipe only takes four ingredients and a quick half hour to make. These are the perfect snack to accompany any game day table. Crispy on the outside, covered with a sticky brown sugar glaze, and oozy melted cheese on the inside, these will be gobbled up in no time.
Fire Roasted Jalapeño Cheese Ball
This cheese ball is sure to be the centerpiece of any table. Coated in chopped onion or tortilla chips, this perfect cheesy sphere is quite eye catching. You can serve it with a variety of sides, like pretzels, apples, crackers, or even potatoes. It’s sure to please any snacker!
Easy Potato Skins
These potato skins are quick and easy to make, with just a thirty minute prep time. You don’t even have to scoop the inside of potatoes, since these are slices. Topped with sour cream, chives hot sauce, shredded cheese, these potato skins are simple slices of potato heaven.
Lunchroom Peanut Butter Bars
What’s better than not having to turn the oven on and wait for dessert to cook? Being able to throw these no bake, chocolate covered peanut butter bars in the fridge and letting them cool until you’re ready to eat them. Full of peanut butter and smothered in chocolate, these will be gone in a flash. You don’t even need any special tools to make them.
Cheesy Spinach Dip
This spinach dip will be the first to disappear from your table of snacks. Good thing it cooks in one skillet and is ready in minutes! Cheese combined with herbs and spinach easily transfers from skillet to bowl to table. This dip can be served with a variety of sides like tortilla chips, french bread, crackers, or even veggies.
Chicken Fajita Queso Dip
Who doesn’t love fajitas or queso? Better yet who doesn’t love fajitas and queso put together? A block of velveeta creates this cheesy goodness and canned chicken, cooked chicken, or even a rotisserie chicken adds to the ease of this recipe. Serve it up with chips and you’ll be sure to have a crowd favorite.
Everyone loves shrimp and everyone loves a good quesadilla. With the shrimp being a quick cook, the whole recipe is finished in twenty minutes and only uses one pan. Top it with sour cream or hot sauce and it’s ready to go. You can even save the leftovers and reheat them for a quick snack!
Buffalo Chicken Dip
Buffalo chicken dip is always a crowd pleaser. You can use a regular chicken breast or smoked chicken on the grill for added flavor. Taking only fifteen minutes to prepare, this recipe will create a fair amount of dip, so you might even get lucky enough to have leftovers! The leftovers can be frozen or reheated and served with tortilla chips, on baked potatoes, or even used in a pasta dish!
Crockpot Pulled Pork Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
These sandwiches are packed with flavor with the additions of onion powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and BBQ sauce. For this high-protein meal, any type of pork and cheese will work. The recipe uses freshly grated white cheddar cheese and whole grain bread.

An easy dish to make, cook the beans, bacon, onion, and garlic, and then put all the ingredients (which includes bourbon, brown sugar, and BBQ sauce) in a crockpot. The recipe uses dry navy beans, which are high in protein, fiber, folate, and manganese.
Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef
This flavorful Mexican dish is high in protein. The chipotles in adobo sauce give it a tasty, spicy kick. The recipe can be doubled if your slow cooker is big enough. This dish is great for feeding a large crowd.
