Pizza is a good choice for a Super Bowl party.

When you hold a Super Bowl party, you want to serve food that will satisfy appetites but not cause people to be distracted from watching the game. The ideal menu should include finger foods, a variety of snacks, a hearty main course and plenty of drinks and desserts. The focus should be on foods that can be eaten off a plate as people move around a crowded room.

      Pizza always goes over well with guests at a Super Bowl party. You can order pizza or make your own. Mini pizzas also make good appetizers for the party. For mini pizzas, use a can of refrigerated dough, such as crescent rolls or dinner rolls. Separate each portion and make a ball, then flatten it, top with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and a variety of meat or vegetable toppings and bake.

    Chili

      Chili is a good main course for a Super Bowl party. For an easy batch of chili, brown two pounds of ground beef, then place in a crock pot with diced onions, diced green peppers, diced red peppers, one 15-ounce can of corn, one 16-ounce can of kidney beans and two 32-ounce cans of crushed tomatoes. Add seasonings such as chili powder or garlic if desired. Cook on low setting for at least four hours. Accompany chili with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips.

      Many people buy hot wings with their pizza, but you can make them yourself with little trouble. Start with cut-up chicken wing sections, dip each section in beaten egg, then coat with seasoned flour. Deep fry the wings. For the finishing touch, coat the fried wings in hot sauce.

    Chips and dip

      Chips and dip will get any Super Bowl party off to a smacking good start. Offer a variety of chips, such as standard potato chips, sturdy, ruffled chips and tortilla chips. Make a classic onion dip by mixing a packet of dry onion soup mix with 16 ounces of sour cream. For chili cheese dip, melt an 8-ounce package of Velveeta cheese, mix in one 16-ounce can of chili (no beans), then microwave for 30 seconds, stir and serve.

    S'mores

    • S'mores are a great bite-size dessert for a Super Bowl party. For quick, hassle-free s'mores, use your microwave. Ingredients needed are graham crackers, chocolate bars and marshmallows. Place a chocolate bar and marshmallow on half of a full-size graham cracker, then top with the other graham cracker half. Put the assembled s'mores on a microwave-safe tray and heat for 30 to 40 seconds. Serve immediately for a gooey-fresh treat.
