Super Bowl Party Recipe Classics
Baked BBQ Chicken Wings. Chicken wings and the Super Bowl go hand in hand. These savory baked chicken wings are served with a tangy blue cheese dipping sauce, and are guaranteed to make all your football-watching guests feel right at home.
Quesadilla with Smoky Black Bean Spread and Salsa by Deborah Madison. These quesadillas can be cooked in the oven and cut up into single-serving sizes, making them quick and easy to prepare.
Coconut Shrimp by Lucinda Scala Quinn. Sweet, crunchy shrimp and their tangy tamarind dipping sauce are a real change of pace from the usual American fare served at Super Bowl parties — but not so far off that guests won't clean their plates.
Real Onion Dip by Rick Rodgers. This is the real deal, the dip that your guests are craving, made with freshly caramelized onions instead of the dehydrated ones. Plus, it can be made two days ahead of time, so you can whip it out of the fridge whenever the party starts.
Sweet Potato French Fries by Margaret Howard. All the deliciousness of french fries — but easy and healthy! These are made with sweet potatoes, which cook more quickly than white potatoes and have a great flavor.
Three-Bean Turkey Chili by Lorna Sass. This tasty chili is low-fat, nutrition-packed and very hearty, in addition to being easy to make and beautiful. Instead of including turkey sausage, try using andouille sausage to give the chili a Cajun flavor.
