11 Super Bowl Snack Dip Ideas

Which Super Bowl snack dips to prepare is a big decision for me. Do I go with a cream cheese or mayonnaise-based snack 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. The appetizer 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?

5 Hot Party Dips

If you are not adding a lot of cheese to your hot dip recipe and baking it into a melty bite, is it even worth making? All the hot snack dip ideas below use cheese as a key ingredient. I find freshly grated parmesan and sharp cheddar to be essential football watching dip ingredients. Cream cheese is always a good base too. As far as the vehicle to get the dip into your mouth, I recommend a hearty tortilla chip like the blue corn chips or scoop Fritos!

6 Cold Snack Dips

When mixing a cold snack dip, you will find most of these fall into the mayonnaise-based family. I prefer Helmann’s real mayonnaise in my dip recipes. One of the nice options with many cold dips is the option to serve with raw vegetables. It gives the illusion of a healthy snack. However, don’t be fooled. The only reason I put those raw veggies on the plate is to serve as a vehicle to get the creamy dip into my mouth!

Actually, if I am being totally honest, I don’t need a big sports event to make party food. If it were up to me, I would fix snack food for every meal. My family knows I love appetizers for dinner. So, there is a chance you will find one of these party dips at our table on any given night.

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.
