10 Party Snack Ideas That Are Guaranteed to Score

The Big Game is nearly upon us, and everyone knows that  food is essential to hosting an epic game day party. There are two key factors to serving the kind of chow your football friends will rave about. First is the flavor (obviously). Second is the ease of delivery. Finger foods will help keep your fans happy from the pre-game countdown, right through the post-game analysis. To help you pull off this feat, here are ten  Big Game snack options that are guaranteed to score, even if your team doesn’t.

1. Chipotle Guacamole

Almost everyone loves guacamole. But rather than offer
the same old staple, why not try a version with a little
bit more smoky heat. You’ll need:
• 3 avocados,
• ¼ cup minced red onion,
• 1 tablespoon minced chipotle in adobo sauce
(add more sauce for more heat)
• the juice of one lime.
Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve with tortilla chips.

2. Mustard Beer Dip

Beer and pretzels are already a winning combination.
Why not improve on that pairing with a beer and
mustard dipping sauce?
• Pour a bottle of pale ale into a pot and simmer
until reduced by half.
• Then stir in ½ cup whole grain mustard
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar
• 1 tablespoon mustard powder
• 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
• ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Let cool and serve with soft or hard pretzels.

3. Quesadillas

Any type of quesadilla is a great choice for a party. Use leftover steak, chicken, or pork, along with jack or cheddar cheese. You can check out this spicy sausage and potato quesadilla recipe for a more advanced take on the classic Mexican-inspired snack food.

4. Sliders

Slap any type of meat between two small buns and you have a recipe for success. You can make standard cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, and easy pulled pork sliders that you can make using a slow cooker to satisfy every
taste and type at the party.

5. Bacon-Wrapped Smokies

Three ingredients will win you loyal, die-hard
fans for life. You’ll need:
• one pound of sliced bacon, cut into thirds,
• ¾ cup brown sugar,
• 16 oz. package of cocktail wieners.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap the dogs,
dip them in sugar, then secure with a toothpick.
Bake for 30 minutes until the bacon is browned.

6. Hot Crab Dip

• Grab a package of cream cheese
• 1 cup mayonnaise,
• 2 teaspoons lemon juice,
• and as much hot sauce as you can stand.
• some fresh minced parsley
•  1 pound of crabmeat.
Cover with breadcrumbs and bake for 30 minutes
at 350 degrees, or until bubbly and golden brown.
Serve with crackers or a sliced, toasted French baguette.

7. Chili Con Carne

It’s not a finger food, but chili is a tasty dish that no one will turn down. If you don’t have a family recipe that’s been passed down, try this classic chili recipe that won’t disappoint.

8. Baked Onion Rings

These oven-baked onion rings are crunchy and easy to eat. This modernized recipe for baked onion rings ensures plenty of bold flavors, with considerably less effort.

9. Beer Braised Brats

No matter where you’re watching the game, some Midwestern-style beer brats can help make the experience better. Don’t forget all the extras, like sauerkraut, brown mustard, rolls, and plenty of napkins.

10. One Pot Sticky Chicken Wings

BBQ and hot wings are expected, so why not try something a little bit more
different? These one-pot sticky chicken wings have star anise, soy sauce,
and other savory Asian flavors.
