Super Bowl Recipes Illustration

Party food is essential to any successful Super Bowl gathering. Almost as essential as the game itself. If your guests aren’t happily stuffing their faces, you probably won’t be asked to host the Super Bowl again next year. To help your Super Bowl party be a hit, we wanted to help take the onus off of you to concoct a list of delicious party food ideas. So we reached out to a local restaurant, NFL fans, and our own staff to compile this list of easy recipes and appetizers for your Super Bowl party.


New Orleans flavor


With the Super Bowl taking place in New Orleans this year, we reached out to NOLA’S, a New Orleans themed restaurant here in Los Angeles for a few suggestions:

Sunday brunch beignets:

7 cups of baker’s flour
1 cup of sugar
1-1/2 cups of lukewarm water
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon dry yeast
1 1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 eggs
7 cups of oil

Put everything together in a bowl and knead it until it becomes a soft but firm paste. Let it rest for about 1 1/2 hours so that it can puff up nicely. Extend on a board and cut it into squares. Drop them into hot oil at a medium fire until they brown to a nice hazel color. Powder sugar after for garnish. Eat while hot and fresh.

NOLA’S macaroni and cheese:

6 cups of milk
1 1/2 oz of cajun seasoning
1 oz of salt
2 1/2 cups of gouda (or monterey cheese)
2 1/2 cups of cheddar
2 1/2 gruyere cups
minced garlic
1/4 lb of butter
1 oz oil
3/4 cups flour
4 cups of cooked elbow maccaroni

(Serves 8). Put the oil and the butter in the pan and let it get hot. Sautee the garlic in the sauce and add flour to the mixture while continually stirring. Once the flour takes a beige color, add in the milk and continue to stir until the milk begins to boil. Add all three cheeses, wait until they melt and in the end add in the cooked macaroni noodles (which should be salted when they are being boiled initially).

Fan Submissions


We posted a request on our Facebook page for our fans’ favorite Super Bowl recipes. Here are the best of the best for tasty meals and appetizers.

Super Bowl Burgers:

2 table spoons of parsley finely chopped
1 onion finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
2 table spoons of jalapeños finely chopped
2 tea spoons of mustard
2 tea spoons of soy sauce
Black pepper
800 grams of minced beef or turkey

Sauté the onion and garlic until soft but not browned, then put in a bowl. Add all the other burger ingredients and mix together. Then make six burgers out of the mix and cook on the grill or in a pan. Add tomato, avacado, mayo, cucumber, or lettuce as possible condiments. — from Tudor Teoborescu

BBQ Bacon wrapped shrimp

Barbecue sauce (Cattlemen’s, Stubb’s or Masterpiece work well)
Grated sharp provologne cheese

Wrap the shrimp with the par cooked bacon and put them on the skewers. Grill the skewers for about 3-4 minutes, depending upon the size of the shrimp and the heat of the grill. Brush them lightly with barbecue sauce and flip them. Brush the other side more heavily with barbecue sauce and grill for another 3 minutes. Flip again and brush with barbecue sauce one last time. Finish by sprinkle with some grated sharp (or extra sharp) provolone and cook for another minute. — from Steve Norris

Homemade Jalapeno Poppers

Cream Cheese
Shredded Cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese you prefer)
Panko breadcrumbs
Parmesan cheese

Cut the jalapenos in half. Seed and de-vein the halves. Spoon in the cheese mixture, then put some (panko) breadcrubs and parmesan on top. Bake them in the over at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. — from Alex Haird

“Hot meat”

1 can of El Pato (yellow)
2-3 tomatoes
2-3 jalapenos
2 lbs stew meat
Garlic to flavor
Salt to flavor

Cook stew meat until done. Add seasoning if desired as cooking. Dice the jalapenos and tomatoes. Add the El Pato sauce, one can of water, jalapenos and tomatoes to stew meat and simmer until jalapenos are tender. (You can add a can of instant rice as well to reduce “hotness” if desired). Serve with tortilla chips and sour cream. — from Acey Cantrell

Chicken Tortillas

2 whole chickens (to beer can grill)
2 blocks of cream cheese
1 cup of sour cream
2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup of Frank’s Red Hot or tobasco sauce

Roast two beer can chickens on grill (season well). When done, allow to rest, then shred the meat off the bone with forks and set aside. In a pot, melt two blocks of cream cheese. Add one cup of sour cream, two cups of sharp cheddar (add more or less to taste), 1/3 cup of Frank’s Red Hot or Tabasco (add more or less to taste). Transfer to an aluminum pan and add the chicken meat. Mix well.  Scoop onto small, warm tortillas and enjoy. — from Bo Keister

Vietnamese-style Party Sub

1 giant loaf of french or sourdough bread
Cooked pork
Chicken stock
Liyu (chili oil)
Shaved carrots
Spicy mayo

Lightly toast a giant loaf of french or sourdough bread and lightly butter the inside. I buy the hanging racks of already cooked pork from Chinatown store windows. Re-heat the pork in a pan with a splash of chicken stock and liyu (chili oil) so it stays moist and has a some spice. Add the pork to the toasted bread with lots of cilantro, shaved carrots, onions, and cucumbers. Drizzle the whole sandwich with Japanese mayo or spicy mayo (mayo and Sirachi) and your giant Vietnamese-style party sub is complete. — from Shawn Felts
