Speedy Super Bowl Spread Tips

This is a guest post.




When the Super Bowl rolls around, you want to be able to invite your friends and neighbours over to watch the game. You also want to create a fun and enjoyable environment for the adults and children alike. Often, that involves having some classic Super Bowl snack ideas on hand.


Because you are probably a busy mom, like myself, you don’t want feeding your guests to require complicated ingredients or take too long to cook. So, I’ve come up with some super quick ideas for you to try, not just for the Super Bowl, but for any occasion where you want to join in the fun rather than slave over a hot stove. With so many different variations on these family favourites, you should be able to create a spread everyone will enjoy, even the kids.




What would game day be without nachos!? You can’t go wrong with this snack idea and it’s easy to make. For detailed recipe information, just check out the trusted Kraft nachos recipe.


On their page, you can also find other variations on nachos recipes. For example, instead of beef, try chicken or add mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar. Perhaps you like it spicy? If so, add jalapenos or chilli flakes for extra punch! These have always come through for me on game day. If you want to add a green spin on it, buy local, organic, grass-fed beef or chicken.


The best thing about this recipe is that you can easily create more of it if the bowl starts running low. Just a few minutes under the grill to get the cheese melting and tortillas crisp and youโ€™re set! It’s a great idea to get a head count before you start going to work in the kitchen. Just remember to ask who likes what and if any one has any allergies before you start.


Chunky Guacamole


Another great idea for a game day snack is guacamole. All you need is a small red onion, a cup of chopped cilantro, 3 diced avocados and the juice of 2 limes. Then you can add salt to taste. This recipe takes approximately 20 minutes and tastes great!


Also, for a different spin on the chips, go with non-gmo blue corn tortillas instead of the typical tortilla chips. Your guests will enjoy the splash of vibrant color as well as the taste of this wonderful snack.




Who doesn’t love cheeseburgers while watching the game? This is something simple that both kids will eat and adults will enjoy. Instead of creating one large burger for everyone, opt for miniature versions. You can cook your beef ahead of time and have several toasted mini-rolls sliced and ready to be eaten.


Create a side dish of a range of toppings like cheese, tomatoes, bacon, lettuce, mustard and ketchup makes it easy for everyone to create their own. For a little added flavour for the adults, try adding in chopped onion and green capsicum into the beef patties.


Now that you have some new recipe ideas for the Super Bowl, you can focus on the rest of your to-do list. Just remember to make something to drink and have a few desserts, like cookies and pies, ready for your guests. Have a great super bowl party!
