Three Super Easy Super Bowl Halftime Recipes

Super Nachos

Super Nachos

Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest eating day of the year, after Thanksgiving. So don’t let your Super Bowl spread fail! Here are three easy, no-fuss football snacks that are so delish!

Worlds Easiest Nachos


1 bag Tortilla Chips
1 can beef, beef & bean or vegetarian chili (we like Trader Joe’s)
1 package shredded Mexican-style cheese
1 small can jalapeno peppers
2 avocados chopped or mashed
2 T sour cream
2T salsa
¼ cup sliced black olives
¼ cup chopped tomato


Cover the bottom of a microwave-safe dish with a layer of tortilla chips. Spoon the chili on top, covering as many of the chips as possible. Drain the jalapeno peppers and layer them on top of the chili. (Use less for milder nachos.) Cover the entire dish with shredded cheese. Microwave until the cheese is melted and the chili is hot. Top with avocados, sour cream, salsa, olives and tomatoes. Serve with the remaining tortilla chips.


Chicken Wing Dip

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup pepper sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot)
1 cup Ranch-style salad dressing
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and hot pepper sauce until well blended. Mix in the Ranch dressing, chicken and Cheddar cheese. Spread into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
3. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. If oil collects on the top, dab it off using a paper towel. Serve with tortilla chips.
