9 Spicy Snacks For Super Bowl Sunday
Behold, snacks to please the mighty Superb Owl!
This Sunday, when the Chiefs play the Buccaneers, it’s good to have some spicy food on-hand because, well, it’s never a bad time for spicy food. Below we’ve outlined 10 of our favorite spicy snacks (in no particular order) that are good for sharing amongst friends or hoarding completely for yourself.
Don’t see something you like? Let us know!
1. Buffalo Chicken Dip
An instant classic, buffalo chicken dip takes the messiness out of wings completely and lets you combine all of the flavors and put them on a dipping utility. Carrots, chips, carrot chips, celery sticks, whatever, buffalo chicken dip is easy to make and almost impossible to screw up.
2. Jalapeno Poppers
There are many ways to make a jalapeno popper, so don’t get too bogged down in the details. At its core, a jalapeno popper is a half or whole jalapeno, de-seeded, then filled with a cream cheese/shredded cheese combo. You can get real fancy and add some bacon in there as well or go with the Texas Twinkie and slap some brisket inside, wrap the whole thing in bacon, then cook it in a smoker.
3. Ghost Pepper Party Mix
Look, Chex Mix is boring. The “bold” variety is their boldest and their spiciest version isn’t all that spicy. Why not take matters into your own hands and cook some up yourself? Ancho Amanda put together a great recipe that doesn’t take much work and lets you be the master of your spicy domain. Add as much (or as little) ghost pepper powder as you’d like or swap it out for a different pepper powder entirely.
4. Habanero Queso Dip
One of two cheese dips on here, the Habanero queso dip takes a handful of diced/minced habaneros and slaps them into a basic cheese base. Not too fancy, but who needs fancy when all you want is a vessel for cheese to get into your body faster.
5. Ginger Reaper Crack Weenies
Previously a holiday staple, these crack weenies are a solid anytime snack. On the run? Crack Weenies. Need to impress the in-laws? Crack weenies. Want to make something that’s too hot for your “mayo is spicy” colleagues? Crack weenies, with extra Ginger Reaper hot sauce. So many use cases, so just go make some already.
6. Bacon Chipotle Beer Cheese Dip Recipe
Cheese number two, this one is a bit more complicated. We’re not going to say this is Iron Chef levels of complicated, but it’s definitely more involved than the simple Habanero Queso Dip. Added benefit here is bacon, flavor, and bacon. Kick it up an extra notch by adding in some Scorpion Garlic hot sauce.
7. Air Fryer Wings
Looking for fried wings without the oily mess? Air Fryer wings are the way to go. Cook ’em up, toss ’em in your favorite sauce (we hear good things about Fartley Farms hot sauces), and you’re done. It’s that easy. Advanced mode for this dish is doing everything in a smoker or on the grill, but when there’s a foot of snow outside, do you really want to do that?
8. Salsa Verde and Chips
Chips and salsa, the whole reason Tostitos is able to get away with the highway robbery they call “scoops,” but we won’t get into our Chip Illuminati conspiracies here. Just know that a salsa verde can almost never go wrong and the chips you use say nothing about who you are as a person. Again, it’s all just a vessel for getting it to your face.
9. Totcho Bar
Not just a snack, but the pièce de résistance when it comes to Super Bowl foods. Start with a base of tater tots (or multiple kinds), lay out some assorted meats (cooked is preferred, maybe a nice chorizo), and toppings (sour cream, lettuce, hot sauce, green onions, cheese, etc), and you’re good to go. Your friends won’t remember the score or who won the game, all they’ll be able to talk about is what a legend you and your totcho bar became on that day in February. Bards will sing about it, scribes will etch it in stone. You are the totcho champion.
