With a little bit of planning, you can host an awesome yet family-friendly Super Bowl party this year. Take the stress out of prepping by using these low-prep and yummy ideas!
Taco & Nacho Bar- People LOVE this! Load up your Crockpot with some ground beef, chicken, or pork, and let it cook all day. Then have a spread of great toppings: shredded cheese, lettuce, jalapeños, salsas, sour cream, etc. It looks great and people love making their own creation.
Hot dog Bar- Grill a bunch of hot dogs, maybe even some sausages. You can use a crockpot to keep them warm. Make regional topping stations. Chicago- dill pickles, cucumbers, diced onion, sweet relish, pickled peppers, etc. New York- spicy brown mustard and sour kraut. Cincinnati style- chili, cheese, mustard, onion.
One of my favorite and easiest meals is also a great idea for a Super Bowl party. Crockpot BBQ sandwiches are easy and delicious.
You simply place the following into a crockpot:
4-5 chicken breasts, boneless/skinless
1/3 cup Italian dressing
3/4 c. of your favorite BBQ sauce
Let it cook for 6 hours on low, then use 2 forks to shred the meat. (Pork and beef work well too.) Use small dinner rolls or sweet Hawaiian rolls to make mini-sandwiches. You can also place a small pat of slaw on top.
My favorite slaw is Greek Slaw:
1 bag of cole slaw mix
1/2 c. feta cheese
1/2 c. Greek Dressing (Ken’s is great)
Mix it all up, you’re done! It’s delicious by itself or on top of the BBQ sandwich.
Need a fast dip? This is the easiest twist on a dip ever! Add 1/2 c. salsa to 4 oz. softened cream cheese, add a dash of ground red pepper. Mix and serve with chips.
