Were I to be throwing a Super Bowl party this year the menu would certainly include finger foods and sweets. More specifically, and since the game is in Arizona, a southwest theme would be in order. With that in mind, how about a Taco Bar? Whatever the theme I always put out a mid-sized crockpot full of Hormel No-Bean Chili and Velveeta cheese with a couple bags of Tortilla chips for dipping. You might need to take out a second mortgage to afford the Velveeta these days but it's worth the sacrifice. Past years have featured spaghetti, pizza, an mini meatball subs. We've been known to serve football shaped brownies among the dessert offerings. In true potluck fashion, our guests are great about bringing veggie/cheese trays, wings, buffalo chicken dip and many other dessert choices. One year we based the menu on foods in "ball" form. Cheese Balls, Mashed Potato Balls, Cake Balls, and Pizza Balls & Buffalo Chicken Balls or "Bombs". That's stuffing or wrapping pepperoni and mozzarella, or buffalo chicken inside Pillsbury biscuit dough and serving them with marinara and ranch dressing for dipping. I think that was the year we tried to make our own mini corn dogs. The menu is up to you. Serve as much of whatever you'd like, all along keeping in mind what level of clean-up there will be at the end of the night.

When planning the couch-gaiting feast there are some expectations from your guests to keep in mind. According to voters on, these are the Top 10 Super Bowl Foods:

  1. Chicken wings
