Don’t let a weak menu or poor game-plan sack your party
Here are a few snack choices to keep your home team satisfied.
This Sunday brings the mother of all sports events and America’s second biggest food holiday of the year – the big game! Don’t let a weak menu or poor game-plan sack your party. Nothing tackles hunger like meat on game day. Here are a few choices to keep your home team satisfied, so you can focus on cheering your team on to victory.
Pre-game Picks: Kick things off with some hearty finger foods your guests can much on, even after they’ve claimed their spot on the couch. Nachos are a great choice. Taco seasoning and splash of beer bring out the rich flavor of the meat, and you can easily switch things up by using ground beef, chicken, bison, or even chorizo to get the flavor you’re looking for.
Halftime Heroes: No one wants to spend time in the kitchen while the highlights are rolling and the halftime show gets underway. Have some quick heat-and-eat options like pre-cooked meatballs and burgers on-hand to keep the fans full and keep midgame squabbles at bay. Or throw some quick-cooking sausages on the grill at the two-minute warning for a classic combo like sausage and peppers. If you want to kick up the heat, add chopped hot pepper to your relish, or choose spicy sausages like jalapeno cheddar or hatch chili.
Wing It: This weekend, Americans will buy more than 1.25 billion wings, and we can understand why. They’re the perfect spicy, sweet and savory match for ice-cold beers and field goals. But not all wings are created equal. At Whole Foods Market, all of our wings come from chicken farms that have been certified to Global Animal Parntership’s 5-Step Animal Welfare Standards, so you can feel confident about how the animal was raised for the meat you’re buying. Classic buffalo wings are the perfect game day wing.
Extra Points: If you really want to go for the win, try beef short ribs. These big, thick juicy ribs deliver tender beef like braised brisket, but are packed with slow-cooked barbecue flavor. All you need is a few simple ingredients and a little prep time. Just make sure you make enough for your group — you’ll have a hard time sharing!

Pour in a tiny bit of jalapeno juice from the jar. Mix in a small amount of mayonnaise. Stir all together. The key is not to add too much mayo. You need just enough to bind it together.

Air fryer Super Bowl snacks that are easy to make
1. Buffalo chicken wonton bites.
A little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, these snacks are great for the adults in the family. Just dip in some ranch or sweet chili sauce.
- 1 cup of shredded chicken (just boil and shred first)
- 1 tbsp. Frank’s buffalo sauce
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- ¼ cup chopped green onions
- 12 wonton wrappers
Mix the first five ingredients together using a fork. Lay out your wonton wrappers on a flat surface, and wet the edges using a pastry brush and water (or your finger). Add one spoonful of mixture to the center of each wonton, pinch the edges together to seal, and pop in the air fryer. Cook for about 4 minutes at 400 degrees.
2. Jalapeno poppers.
Who doesn’t like a good jalapeno popper for a Super Bowl snack? We’ve got you covered.
- 8 large jalapenos, sliced lengthwise and de-seeded
- 8 pieces of bacon
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- ¾ cup of jack cheese
- 1 tsp. cumin
Mix the cheeses and cumin together, and stuff each jalapeno half with the mixture. Use a slice of bacon to wrap up each jalapeno, and place in the air fryer (make sure to spray with non-stick spray first). Cook for about 8 minutes at 350 degrees. The cheese should look toasty and slightly brown when they’re ready.
3. Fried pickle spears.
The ultimate finger food, these fried pickle spears go great with some ranch dressing (or maybe even some avocado ranch?) You can also add in some cayenne if you want them a bit spicy.
- 12 pickle spears
- ½ cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup panko or bread crumbs
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
- ½ tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
Line up three bowls: one with the flour, one with the eggs, and one with the panko or bread crumbs. Use a whisk to beat the two eggs, and mix in the salt, Italian seasoning, and optional cayenne into the bread crumbs or panko. Then, spray the air fryer with non-stick spray.
Next, take each pickle spear and dip it into the flour (making sure it’s full coated), then the eggs, and then the panko mix. Spread the spears evenly across the air fryer basket and cook at 400 degrees for about 7 to 8 minutes.
4. Air-fried chicken wings.
You can’t have the Super Bowl without wings, right? This dry rub wing recipe is all you need to satisfy that craving.
- 16 chicken wings/drumsticks
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp. garlic powder
- 2 tbsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. paprika
- 1 tbsp. chili powder
- 1 tbsp. garlic salt
- ½ tbsp. cayenne pepper
- ½ tbsp. black pepper
- Olive oil spray
Mix all the dry ingredients in a gallon-sized Ziplock bag. Spray your wings with an olive oil spray, toss in the bag, and shake until all the wings are well-covered. Then, spray your air fryer basket with non-stick spray, place the wings in evenly (being careful not to overlap), and cook at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. Use tongs to flip the wings about 8 minutes in. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to do your wings in batches.
5. Homemade corn nuts.
Just want a yummy Super Bowl snack mix to crunch on? Try these homemade corn nuts. You can customize by adding your favorite spices.
- 14 oz. dried hominy
- 3 tbsp. canola oil
- 1.5 tsp. salt
- 1.5 tsp. cayenne pepper, Old Bay seasoning, or ranch dressing mix (optional based on what flavor you want)
Fill a large bowl with water, and soak the hominy kernels overnight. In the morning, pat the kernels dry using a paper towel, and lay out on a large tray to continue drying. After about 30 minutes, place the kernels in a bowl, pour in your oil, and add in the salt and seasonings. Stir until evenly coated. Then, put a layer of kernels at the bottom of the air fryer basket and cook for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Make sure to shake the basket a few times throughout. Repeat with the remaining kernels until all are complete.
My quick Turkey Meatballs are hearty and really give you something to sink your teeth into. If you're really feeling crafty, you can make them football shaped.

Recipe Roundup: 5 Super Bowl Party Snack Ideas
Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching. It’s a time to gather for food, friends and football. If you’re only interested in two out of the three, then you’ll love these recipes for relatively healthier snack options. It’s totally OK to have treat days, and maybe the Super Bowl is yours. Whether you’re hosting or bringing a dish to contribute, guests will appreciate having at least one healthier option along with the other traditional game viewing snacks we love—like pig(skin)s in a blanket!
This is a healthy twist on a classic football game snack and a pretty great substitution for the real thing since it’s the sauce that’s key! It can also be easily made gluten-free or vegan.
Layered dips are by far one of the easiest dishes to prepare, and yet one of the most impressive to guests based on presentation alone. Try this beautiful recipe from Trader Joe’s.
For a heartier option, trade the traditional baked potato for a sweet potato stuffed with greens.
Those with a sweet tooth will flip over this popcorn tossed in sweet and creamy peanut butter.
Most people won’t think that they’ll want a salad at events like this, but once they see it in a sea of potentially beige options, they’ll be glad it’s there! Take advantage of winter fruits like persimmon and pomegranate for this sweet and tangy salad.
80+ Best Super Bowl Appetizers That'll Tide You Over for the Big Game
As with everything else in these difficult times, the pandemic has had a major effect on sports, and The Super Bowl will be no exception. But even if you can't host the kind of big, indoor watch party you might have in other years (and&mdashfingers crossed&mdashyou'll be able to do again next year) you can still celebrate with a few choice Super Bowl appetizers. And that's a win no matter what, right? Where would we be without the pillars of Super Bowl recipes, like spicy wings and cheesy dips? But there&rsquos so much more to the big day&rsquos menu, as this huge list of appetizers proves. In addition to the classics, there are other bites you may want, like the pepperoni pizza stuffed mushrooms, bacon wrapped shrimp, or Cajun sausage puffs.
Of course, there are plenty of dip recipes too, including homemade French onion, as well as a decadent bacon queso blanco. You can even get creative by using your dips alongside some of the dishes, like the beef and blue cheese sliders or the garlic cheesy breadsticks. And it wouldn't be the Super Bowl without a ton of chicken wing recipes to choose from. Tired of buffalo? Why not try the chipotle honey lime, tangy honey mustard, or fajita chicken wings? Whatever you decide to cook up for your bash, these best Super Bowl appetizers are sure to fill you up and power you through the big game. (Check out our healthy Super Bowl recipes and Super Bowl desserts too!)
Once you decide to host a gathering for the Super Bowl, it is important to select a range of snacks that will satisfy all of your guests. We recommend offering a few different types of meat options, as well as some vegetarian-friendly dishes. Bite-sized and hand-held food is always a plus! With these five Super Bowl snack ideas, you’re sure to fuel up even the hungriest of guests so that they have plenty of energy to cheer on their team. And by cheer on their team, we mean yell at the refs and question the play-calling!
Nachos are a game-day staple, often prominently featured on sports bar menus across the country. While they are a popular Super Bowl snack choice when going out to watch the game, we often do not think to serve them up at home. Why? It’s probably because the thought of making them for a crowd can be daunting. But, we’ll let you in on a little secret. By baking these on a sheet pan in the oven, you can feed the masses all in one batch! Plus, we’ve snuck a bunch of veggies under all of those layers of cheese and beans, so you can feel a little bit better about chowing down. Chop the veggies, prep the guacamole, and marinate the steak a day in advance to reduce the prep the day of the Super Bowl!
