Even if you’re not an avid football fan, the Super Bowl can be a fun event for everyone. Maybe it’s just me, but I think I stuff more food in my face on Super Bowl Sunday than on Thanksgiving! Check out these tips and tricks for throwing a successful party without breaking the bank.
1. Double-Dip in the Slow Cooker
This genius hack uses aluminum foil to create a divider in your slow cooker, enabling you to cook two dips simultaneously. Get the instructions HERE.
Some yummy dip ideas:
- Easy 6 Ingredient Swiss Cheese Bacon Dip
- Buffalo Chicken Dip
- Parmesan Artichoke Dip
- Bacon & Jalapeño Cheese Ball
2. Nacho Bar
This Nacho Bar is super easy to prep ahead of time, allowing you to enjoy the game without spending all of your time in the kitchen. Rather than pouring your time into making multiple dishes to appease everyone’s tastes, having a nacho bar allows your guests to make it their way.
Tip: If you’re looking to keep costs low, offer one dish, like the nacho bar, and then host your party potluck-style. Also, consider asking your guests to BYOB if it’s going to be a large group.
If you’re looking for a delicious dip to go with your Nacho bar, you’ve got to make this oh so yummy White Queso Dip. AND – a nacho bar wouldn’t be complete without salsa – this Homemade Restaurant Style Salsa doesn’t disappoint.
