The 19 Best Recipes To Make For Your 2019 Super Bowl Party

The 19 Best Recipes To Make For Your 2019 Super Bowl Party

It's that time of the year again... the beginning of the year means the end of football season. Go out with a bang and host a legendary party; all you need is to pick a few (or all if you're feeling brave) of these recipes and you'll kill the hosting game.


The list starts with some dips, then moves on to finger food/appetizers, main dishes and of course, DESSERT. Pro Tip: watch out for the few dishes dedicated to my Super Bowl predictions: the Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints.

A fan favorite: BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP!!!

If you don't have this dish at your party, people might leave... #sorrynotsorry

Fresh Guacamole

Everyone loves a little chips and guac' - so use this recipe for the ultimate party staple.

Fresh Mango Salsa

If you have guac, then you gotta have salsa. Here's a recipe for a fresh twist on boring, old jarred salsa.

Jalapeno Popper Dip

All the best parts of the classic appetizer, in dip form. Here's a recipe that will make your guests come back for more.

Ultimate Fully-Loaded Nachos

Guarantee that this whole pan of nachos will be gone before the coin toss.

Chicken Flautas

These little heavenly roll-ups will be a fan-favorite as soon as you take them out of the oven (their green salsa is also a part of the recipe).

Pigs in a Blanket (Cajun Edition)

Use this recipe to make one of the best foods of all time (in my professional opinion). Also, I had to pick this Cajun twist on a classic as a shoutout to the New Orleans Saints!!!

Potato Skins

Use this recipe to whip up some little slices of par-tay... who doesn't love a good potato skin?

Soft Pretzels

Use this recipe for the perfect salty snack (or let's be real... you could buy the pre-made ones from the grocery store if you're short on time. I know this whole thing was my idea but I won't tell anyone, promise).

All-American Beef Chili

This recipe is quick and easy, which is perfect because if you're having a Super Bowl party then you probably have 100 other things to do.

Cajun Shrimp Mac and Cheese

Another shoutout to the Saints (can you tell I'm rooting for them?) - try this recipe to make a dish that literally looks like the best invention in the world.

Classic BLT Sandwiches

This recipe (even though it's pretty self-explanatory) helps you knock this classic out of the park (er, in this case, off the field?).

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

As an equal-sided shoutout to the Chiefs, Kansas City is known for their barbecue. Use this recipe to make a delicious sandwich that people will devour.

Mexican Lasagna

Easy ~and~ delicious... use this recipe to make the ultimate party comfort food.

Football Whoopie Pies

OK, how cute are these little dessert sandwiches? Martha Stewart is quaking...

Oreo Football

Straight from the kitchen of my Aunt J, this recipe is revolutionary. Last time she made it, my brother ate the. entire. thing.

Fudge Stout Brownies

In the wise words of Country Living Magazine: "Thanks to these brownies, it's finally acceptable to have beer for dessert."

M&M team-themed Cookies

Ok you can't really go wrong with these. Follow this recipe and cater them to the 2 teams playing, and you'll have a hit.

Buckeye Dip

All the best things combined into one dessert; here's the recipe.

May your party be poppin' and the Saints be marchin'!!!!

To The Coach Who Ruined The Game For Me

We can't blame you completely, but no one has ever stood up to you before.

I know you never gave it a second thought, the idea that you're the reason I and many others, never went any farther in our athletic careers.

I know you didn't sincerely care about our mental health, as long as we were physically healthy and our bodies were working enough to play. It's obvious your calling wasn't coaching and you weren't meant to work with young adults, some who look to you as a parent figure or a confidant.

I also know that if we were to express our concerns about the empty feeling we began to feel when we stepped onto the court, you wouldn't have taken the conversation seriously because it wasn't your problem.

I know we can't blame you completely, no one has ever stood up to you before. No one said anything when girls would spend their time in the locker room crying because of something that was said or when half the team considered quitting because it was just too much.

We can't get mad at the obvious favoritism because that's how sports are played.

Politics plays a huge role and if you want playing time, you have to know who to befriend. We CAN get mad at the obvious mistreatment, the empty threats, the verbal abuse, “It's not what you say, its how you say it."

We can get mad because a sport that we loved so deeply and had such passion for, was taken away from us single-handedly by an adult who does not care. I know a paycheck meant more to you than our wellbeing, and I know in a few years you probably won't even remember who we are, but we will always remember.

We will remember how excited we used to get on game days and how passionate we were when we played. How we wanted to continue on with our athletic careers to the next level when playing was actually fun. We will also always remember the sly remarks, the obvious dislike from the one person who was supposed to support and encourage us.

We will always remember the day things began to change and our love for the game started to fade.

I hope that one day, for the sake of the young athletes who still have a passion for what they do, you change.

I hope those same athletes walk into practice excited for the day, to get better and improve, instead of walking in with anxiety and worrying about how much trouble they would get into that day. I hope those athletes play their game and don't hold back when doing it, instead of playing safe, too afraid to get pulled and benched the rest of the season.

I hope they form an incredible bond with you, the kind of bond they tell their future children about, “That's the coach who made a difference for me when I was growing up, she's the reason I continued to play."

I don't blame you for everything that happened, we all made choices. I just hope that one day, you realize that what you're doing isn't working. I hope you realize that before any more athletes get to the point of hating the game they once loved.

To the coach that ruined the game for me, I hope you change.

What Should The Jaguars Do With The No. 7 Overall Pick?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft taking place in Nashville, Tennessee, on April 25. What should they do with it?


D.K. Metcalf? The Ole Miss wide receiver and NFL combine hero that went viral on Twitter for looking enormous in a post-workout picture?

Rashan Gary? The Michigan defensive end who runs a 4.58 40-yard dash at 277 pounds and was the previous No. 1 overall college recruit in 2016?

Dwayne Haskins? The Ohio State Rose Bowl-MVP who has more passing yards in a single season than any other Big 10 quarterback ever?

The correct answer in my humble, yet accurate, opinion is none of the above. The Jacksonville Jaguars should barter their pick with teams behind them. They should look to trade down, even if that means trading out of the first round entirely, and get an extra second-round pick. Let me first address why then I will tell you how.

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell speaks to media at 2019 NFL combine. The 45-year-old from Buffalo, New York, worked for the Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts and Atlanta Falcons before going to Jacksonville in 2013.Trevor Ruszkowski-USA Today Sports

Why: The Jags Need A Bunch Of B-B+ Players, Not One A+ Player.

In the past few years, general manager Dave Caldwell has rarely drafted solid NFL starters that are not necessarily stars but will contribute well to your team. He has either drafted studs or total flops.

When you have drafted names like Jalen Ramsey, Telvin Smith and Yannick Ngakoue, and then also drafted names like Dante Fowler, Luke Joekel and Blake Bortles, your roster naturally ends up in an awkward spot. Jacksonville looks into the 2020 campaign needing to fill serious holes in this roster, primarily on offense. Tight end and offensive line are the main two, as well as a wide receiver.

This means that the Jaguars need to get as many offensive players as possible to add offensive depth to a team that currently has none.

How: Leverage The Defensive Talent In This Draft.

Unfortunately for the Jaguars, this draft is historically good at all the positions that they don't need. Two of the deepest positions in this draft are edge rusher and corner, literally Jacksonville's two best positions. The edge rusher/outside linebacker class is hilariously good. More than half of the top 10 could potentially be that position. Teams behind the Jags want those guys. Edge rushers like Nick Bosa from Ohio State and Josh Allen from Kentucky will be easily gone by pick seven, but perhaps the tier just below them like Devin White from LSU, Montez Sweat from Mississippi State, Rashan Gary from Michigan or his teammate Devin Bush could peak the interest of team's who don't have Jacksonville's defensive line and linebacker depth.

Mississippi State edge rusher Montez Sweat flexes during the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida, in 2017. Sweat is the fourth-ranked player at his position in the 2019 NFL Draft, according to Bucky Brooks of Robbins/Getty Images

The Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins pick at No. 12 and No. 13, respectively. Both of those teams lack front-seven depth. Perhaps one of those guys have caught Green Bay or Miami's eye on tape and those teams are willing to trade up. The Carolina Panthers pick at No. 16 and need a corner, they could look to move up to go get Byron Murphy from Washington or Deandre Baker from Georgia. The Pittsburgh Steelers need both secondary and defensive line help badly. It is almost guaranteed that they will pick that side of the ball and perhaps they will want to move up and get somebody with a higher grade than who would fall to them at pick No. 20.

If Nobody Trades.

There is the obvious, and the very legitimate possibility, that nobody trades with Jacksonville. If that happens, I like two guys in particular to just go ahead and snag at No. 7.

If Jawaan Taylor, the offensive tackle from Florida is available, I like him to the Jags at pick No. 7. The 6'5, 328-pound prospect out of Cocoa, Florida, could add depth to an offensive line that badly needs it. Taylor could back up starter Cam Robinson at left tackle, who is extremely injury prone, or start at right tackle over Will Richardson, who was hurt most of his rookie season in Duval and has yet to show much of anything.

The next best option is Iowa tight end TJ Hockenson. Hockenson was sensational in his time with the Hawkeyes. He is the first sophomore to ever win the John Mackey Award, given annually to the nation's top tight end. He had 49 catches for 760 yards and six touchdowns in the 2018 season. Jags' new quarterback Nick Foles had a history of throwing to tight ends during his time with the Philadelphia Eagles. This roster currently has nothing even sniffing elite pass-catching abilities from a tight end.

So the ideal scenario is a trade down for extra picks. If not, look for one of these two guys to be the seventh player to walk across the stage in Nashville.
