What better way to make memories with your children, than to put together some great Super Bowl dishes that keep the mouths moving and stomachs full during the game. No, you don't need to be an expert in the kitchen. We look at some recipe ideas just for you that will make any dad look good with very little effort.

How to Select the Correct Dishes for the Game

  • Keep it simple.

  • Stay with bite-sized (kid-sized) portions.

  • Choose recipes that are quick to prepare and easy to clean up.

  • Consider the likes and dislikes of your guests (your kids!).

Popular Choices for the Super Bowl

  • Taco Meatballs: These are great as an appetizer and easy to pop into your mouth.

  • Chicken Wings: These include Buffalo and other styles, but consider using a sweet sauce for the kids.

  • Various Chips, Dips, and Spreads: Pick your favorites and include a variety.

  • Hot Dogs, Wieners, and Frankfurters: You can never go wrong with this option.

  • Spare Ribs: This is a favorite for family huddles in front of the television set.

  • Pizza Recipes: Yes, you can make your own quick mini pizzas with everyone's favorite toppings. These are especially kid-approved.

Start with the most important question. Do you have all the ingredients at home or do you need to dash off to the supermarket? It may seem obvious, but make sure that your cable includes the channel on which the game will be broadcasted. Of course the snacks for the big game are by far the most interesting aspect of the game, outside of the game itself.

Chips and dip

You can use any type of chips. Preferably you should stick with tortilla chips, which are firmer and easier to pick the dip up with. These chips are also great because they enhance the taste of the dip. Ingredients for a really tasty dip:

  • 15 ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed

  • ½  cup of salsa

  • tbsp of chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tsp of olive oil

  • 1 tsp of sugar

  • 15 ounce can of sweet corn, drained and rinsed

Mix it all together except the cilantro and olive oil which will be added just before the dish is served. Chill in the refrigerator.

Hot Dogs

What you will need is hot dog buns and franks. Extra items like onions, relish, and shredded cheese are optional, but they are really tasty and make it seem like you know your way around the kitchen. Make sure you have ketchup and mustard, too.

No matter what your preference is, make sure that you enjoy the time with the kids. Include them in the preparation process ,if that is possible. A lot of bonding takes place in everyday tasks and activities, such as cooking and sports. Be creative and add your favorite taste. Ask the kids what they prefer. When everything has been prepared, then you can sit back and enjoy the game together.
