My Super Bowl Spread

Of course I am not talking about the difference in points for the game Sunday. I am talking about the party dips I will have on hand while watching the Super Bowl. This is a big decision for me. Do I go with a cream cheese or mayonnaise based dip? Hot or cold? Do I pretend I am adding a healthy component and choose a dip that is served with raw vegetables? I went back through TheRoomMom files and photos to help me decide. I think I am going to make the hot artichoke dip because it is a favorite from childhood. I will need something on the side– The Big Sandwich perhaps?

P.S. I had to look up the spelling of Super Bowl. I was not sure if it should be one word or two. Is that confusing for anybody else?

If you have been following The Room Mom for any length of time, you know I love party dips. If you are a loyal fan, you also know that I do not really care about sporting events; I only care about the tailgate style food you get to serve with a sporting event. I am thinking this Black Bean Salsa Dip will be on the menu for Super Bowl viewing this year. This is one of easiest dip recipes I have. What might be on your Super Bowl menu? I am looking for a really good chili recipe, and I am in the mood to try something new.


  • 2 (16-oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 (11-oz) cans white shoepeg corn, drained (or regular yellow corn)
  • 2 (4-oz) cans chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 c.  pickled jalapeno nacho slices, drained and chopped
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, minced
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • pepper to taste


  • Combine the beans, corn, green chiles, bell pepper, jalapenos, and cilantro in a bowl and mix well.
  • Whisk the vinegar, oil, and pepper in a bowl until blended.  Add to the bean mixture gradually and gently stir to coat.
  • Chill, covered, for 2+ hours.  Serve with tortilla chips, Frito’s, or as a side salad.
