Wondering what to serve your Super Bowl party guests? Look no further. Here are 25 easy recipes that will have them all cheering!

Every winter, Americans gather together for one of our most important observances: the Super Bowl. Even those among us who do not watch sports the rest of the year are known to attend the rites that accompany this yearly ritual. Because the rites call for food and beer.

Now, I do not have beer recommendations for you, but if you need guidance in that direction, please check out 11 Beers to Drink and Enjoy for the Brewski Newbie by our very own Sarah Crocker (no relation to Betty, I think).

So here is a collection of recipes for party-friendly foods that are easy to prepare and easy to eat. These hand-helds, dips, spreads, and finger foods will have your guests screaming “Touchdown!” with every bite.

If you’ve never had pimento cheese, you are missing a thing. If you haven’t had it lately, and you think it’s a weird 70s thing, you are wrong and you need to try it again.

Serve a touch of Americana with The Kitchn’s touchdown taco casserole. It’s meaty and cheesy and spicy and you might want to eat it all by yourself, with a spoon. But you should really serve it with chips, and share it with everyone.
