With the AFC and NFC Championship games now history, that can only mean one thing – your Super Bowl Sunday 2022 party is finally right around the corner.While we still have the Pro Bowl to enjoy this weekend, the Super Bowl will take place the following weekend and it’ll be interesting.
The Los Angeles Rams, who defeated the San Francisco 49ers to win the NFC Championship, and the Cincinnati Bengals, who defeated the Kansas City Chiefs to win the AFC Championship, will meet in SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, CA on February 13th for Super Bowl Sunday 2022.
Although everyone was focused on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, and Chiefs all season, the Bengals and Rams squeezed through the playoffs with one tight victory after the next. These aren’t the two teams we thought would make it, but here they are.
Snacks You Should Try for Super Bowl Sunday 2022
Now that we’re just two weeks away from Super Bowl Sunday 2022, it’s time for everyone to start planning their Super Bowl parties. That means figuring out where to gather, who to invite, what to drink, and perhaps most importantly, what type of food you want to serve throughout.
Snacks play an integral role in every Super Bowl party and some hosts will even bypass serving a meal to make room for more snacks. It’s the first thing everyone flocks to when they arrive and they continue to be the life of the party until the game is over and everyone leaves.
If you’re planning on throwing a party for Super Bowl Sunday 2022, then you’re going to want to listen up as we go through 20 of our favorite Super Bowl snacks that you should try this year. There’s so many options to choose from and with no right or wrong answer, you can’t lose!
20. Loaded Nachos
Nachos are a staple at any party, not just Super Bowl parties. They’re the ultimate sports snack and are frequently enjoyed by fans inside the stadium. With that said, it’s only right that you bring that taste of stadium food into the comfort of your own home for Super Bowl Sunday 2022.
In order to make loaded nachos, spread out all your desired ingredients onto a baking sheet. This includes the chips, cheese, tomatoes, onions, beans, beef, chicken, pico de gallo, and whatever else you plan on using. Bake until the cheese has melted and then serve!
19. Taco Dip
Taco dip is an excellent option for your Super Bowl party. It’s easier than serving tacos and allows guests to take small bites as they please. Not only that, but it doesn’t take much effort to whip together and the ingredients are simple – just think about what you put in your taco.
It requires eight different layers of flavor – the beans mixed with taco seasoning, the sour cream and cream cheese mixture, the salsa, the tomato, the green pepper, the green onions, the lettuce, and the cheese. If you’d like to add ground beef somewhere, that’ll make it even better.
18. Boneless & Traditional Chicken Wings
The fact that many people view chicken wings as a meal is the perfect reason why you should serve it as a snack at your Super Bowl party. It’ll fill your guests up without taking too much time out of your day since they’re easy to make. You can even order them from your favorite place.
If you plan on making them yourself, just by yourself some raw chicken wings – boneless or traditional – and season them as you wish. Throw them in the oven or air fryer until completely cooked. Of course, you’ll need to prepare a lot because they’ll be flying off the snack table!
17. Loaded Sweet Potato Bites
Potatoes are one of the most versatile foods and will be featured several times on this list. For now, we’re talking about loaded potato bites and while the title says ‘sweet potato,’ you can use whatever type of potato you prefer. If you’ve never tried sweet potato, we highly recommend it.
All you need to do is slice the potatoes into small round discs, season them as you wish (olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, etc.), and throw them in the oven for 10 minutes each side. To serve, garnish them with hot sauce, cheese, green onions, and sour cream.
16. Fried Wonton Wrappers
Wontons are a flavorful snack option for any occasion, but you’ll likely surprise some people if you present them at your Super Bowl party. Of course, that’s what we like about them – no one ever expects them, but they’re always a hit when available. People will flock to the snack table!
You can either buy pre-made wonton wrappers at the store or make your own with homemade dough. For the filling, you can use whatever ingredients you want, but most people like ground beef, pork, chicken, soy sauce, oil, green onions, etc. Just seal them, fry them, and enjoy!
15. Pigs in a Blanket
A Super Bowl party without pigs in a blanket isn’t actually a Super Bowl party, is it? Let’s be honest, this simple treat was a staple in most of our childhoods and we enjoyed it so much we continued to make it into our adulthoods. It’s easy, tasty, and brings back a ton of memories!
All you need are cocktail wieners, crescent rolls, butter, and salt. Unroll the crescent rolls and cut each one into three smaller triangles. Roll one triangle around the cocktail wiener and brush them with butter before baking for 15-20 minutes. Serve with several different dip options.
14. Chicken or Beef Sliders
Everyone likes a good burger, but we’re rolling with the sliders since we’re talking about snacks – not meals. It’s everything you like about a burger, but in a much smaller, easier-to-handle concoction. It doesn’t even need to be a beef burger – it can be chicken, pulled pork, etc.
The best rolls to use are the King’s Hawaiian Roll brand. For a burger or chicken patty, you can add relish, ketchup, cheese, mustard, pickles, caramelized onions, and any other toppings your guests might desire. To switch things up, try pulled pork sliders and get a taste of barbeque!
13. Homemade Guacamole
It doesn’t matter what type of party you’re throwing, the first question guests ask is, “Where’s the guacamole?” And if you don’t have guacamole, you can instantly see their stomach drop as they contemplate their decision to show up. Don’t let this happen to you at your Super Bowl party.
Better yet, guacamole is extremely quick and easy to make. In a mixing bowl, start stirring the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Slowly start to mix in the onions, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic, and cayenne pepper. Let it sit in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving it to the guests!
12. Homemade Egg Rolls
We already got a taste of Chinese culture with the wontons, so why not make it a theme with some homemade egg rolls. It’s similar to the wonton in several ways, but allows you to play around with the filling. Don’t worry, you can add whatever you’d like to the inside of an egg roll.
Traditionally, egg rolls contain ground beef, pork, or chicken, combined with coleslaw mix, salt, pepper, garlic, ginger, green onions, soy sauce, and sesame oil on an egg roll wrapper – which can be bought at the store. Heat up some oil and fry them for about five minutes until golden.
11. Mini Chicken or Beef Tacos
We’ve talked about the mini burgers, but we can’t forget about the mini tacos – especially if you don’t plan on serving taco dip. It might not be the first thing on everyone’s list, but how many people do you think are actually going to decline the opportunity to eat a mini taco? Not many!
You can make these several different ways. You can buy mini hard shells or cut soft tortillas into smaller portions. You can pre-make the tacos or serve it buffet-style so guests can make them as they wish. Either way, mini tacos are bound to be a hit at your Super Bowl Sunday 2022.
10. Spinach Artichoke Dip
Spinach artichoke dip is another staple at Super Bowl parties across the nation. It’s a simple concoction made from ingredients you likely already have in your home. The name might scare some people away, but they would be proven wrong the moment they gave it a solid try.
To make spinach artichoke dip, mix together cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, parmesan, mozzarella and pepper. Slowly add in the artichokes and spinach before spreading out on a baking dish and baking for about 20 minutes. Serve with baguettes, crackers, or chips.
9. Onion Rings, French Fries, & Tater Tots
This snack idea requires very little though and even less effort. At the same time, it’ll likely be the first snack that everyone flocks to at your Super Bowl party. Whether you serve onion rings, french fries, tater tots, or a combination of all three, they won’t last very long on the snack table.
French fries are easy to make at home – just cut a potato and bake them. Tater tots require you to combine shredded potato, flour, garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano before shaping and baking. For onion rings, fry fresh onion rings after dipping them in a flour, egg, and bread crumb mixture.
8. Fried Pickles
Fried pickles are one of those treats most people never thought they would enjoy until they tried it for the first time. Same with fried zucchini and other fried concoctions that don’t seem like they would be good, but they are. With fried pickles, you can have a tasty snack in just minutes.
Place your pickles on a paper towel to dry while you combine flour, Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt, and water into a mixing bowl. Coat the pickles in the mixture and fry them in a pan with hot oil. Serve them with a variety of unique sauces for dipping.
7. Fruit & Vegetables
I know fruit and vegetables are the last thing you would think you need for your Super Bowl party, but it’s always good to have healthy options available. They can be served alongside anything and you can even add in some dips – ranch, blue cheese, caramel, chocolate.
Some of our favorite fruits and vegetables to offer guests at a Super Bowl party include sliced apples, grapes, carrots, celery, sliced oranges, bananas, and strawberries. Place them in a fruit salad, serve them on a platter, or serve them individually – it’s completely up to the host!
6. Homemade Chili
The Super Bowl falls during the winter months, which means many people are hunkered down inside their home away from the freezing cold. If you’re looking to keep your guests warm and happy throughout the game, homemade chili is sure to warm their hearts – and taste buds!
For a classic chili recipe, brown some ground beef with onion and stir in chili powder, cumin, sugar, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Then add broth, diced tomatoes, drained beans, and tomato sauce. Bring it to a boil and then simmer for 20-30 minutes.
5. Mini Pizza Bites
Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s so good that most of the people I know that don’t like cheese or tomatoes will still eat pizza if offered. Not only that, but there are so many ways to enjoy it. For your next Super Bowl party, mini pizza bites are a fantastic option your guests will appreciate.
The best way to make this happen is with mini bagels, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni. Make a mini pizza on each half mini bagel before baking it to perfection. You can also play around with the toppings and add onions, peppers, ham, bacon, pineapple, etc.
4. Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs can make an appearance at any Super Bowl party and I’d be okay with it. They’re a classic, traditional appetizer that takes less than an hour to prepare and cook. Better yet, you can prepare a lot at once to ensure each of your guests has an opportunity to try them.
Place eggs in a saucepan filled with water – about two inches above the eggs. Bring the water to a boil, cover the eggs, and simmer for a minute or two. Gently peel the eggs after letting them cool off, cut them in half, and mix the yolk with mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Top the egg whites with the new mixture and serve!
3. Tortilla Pinwheels
Tortilla pinwheels would make an excellent addition to your Super Bowl snack menu. They’re easy to make and even easier to eat. Your guests will keep coming back for more, which is what you want as a host. Shoot, you may even need to make more of them during the halftime show.
Spread a mixture of diced onions, fine olives, cream cheese, and ranch dressing on a tortilla. Add a piece of meat (ham, turkey, etc.) and cheese (cheddar, swiss, American, etc.) before rolling them up and cutting them into one-inch slices. Serve on a platter with or without a dip.
2. Soft Pretzel Bites
Soft pretzels are another staple at the stadium, so it’s only right that you feature them at your Super Bowl Sunday 2022. I have yet to meet someone that doesn’t like a soft pretzel, especially when you’re dipping it in a beer cheese dip. The world needs more pretzel and cheese dip.
After making and kneading your dough, cut it into smaller pieces of dough and roll it into a long rope. Once you have a rope of dough, cut it into bite-sized pieces and give them a baking soda bath. Then bake them for 15 minutes before serving with your favorite pretzel cheese dip.
1. Buffalo Chicken Dip
Speaking of dip, it would be wrong of us not to mention the king of all dips. Buffalo chicken dip is beyond delicious. With so many flavors hitting your mouth at once, your guests will be drooling as they devour this dip – don’t be surprised if it’s all gone by the end of the first quarter.
In a skillet, cook shredded chicken with hot sauce until the sauce has thickened. Add in cream cheese after reducing the heat to low. Mix for a few minutes and then transfer to a baking dish. Add sour cream and cheese over top and bake for about 10 minutes before serving to guests.
