Are you ready for some football? Yes it's that time of year again; Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner. It is time to get ready for the super bowl parties we all love. You can be cooking for a crowd of 25 or just the family, these recipes are sure to please all party goers.

Don't just serve boring Chips and Salsa, this recipe is great and easy to make.

Crockpot Sausage Dip

Ingredients

3 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese

1 pkg of Owens Sausage (regular or spicy which ever you like)

2 cans Rotell Tomatoes with Chile's (mild, regular or hot)

Hot Sauce (optional)

Cut cream cheese into cubes and allow to soften, either at room temperature or for a minute in the microwave. Brown sausage in a skillet, drain grease completely, I usually pat mine with a paper towel once cooked to get off as much grease as possible.

In a crockpot combine the softened cream cheese, the cooked sausage and Rotell tomatoes. Cook on low for an hour, stirring occasionally to combine ingredients. Taste and add hot sauce as desired for added flavor.

You can use mild or hot tomatoes or sausage depending on how spicy you like your dip. You also can use a block of Velveeta Cheese instead of the cream cheese if you desire. Keep the dip warm in the Crockpot during the game, and serve with tortilla chips.

Buffalo wings are also a fan favorite.

Buffalo Breaded Chicken Wings:

Ingredients

¼ margarine

¼ hot sauce

½ cup flour

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp garlic powder

¼ cayenne pepper

¼ tsp salt

10 chicken wings and drumlets (of course more depending on the crowd)

Vegetable oil for frying

In a bowl melt the margarine or butter and add the hot sauce and the garlic powder. Mix together and set aside for later. In another bowl add together the flour paprika, cayenne pepper and salt, mix together. In a large bowl or bag, put in the wings and coat them with the flour mixture. Ensure that all of the wings are coated evenly with the flour mixture. Put the floured wings in the refrigerator for about an hour which allows the flour to stick to the chicken wings better.

After the wings have been in the refrigerator for an hour, cook the wings in a deep fryer with the oil heated to 350 degrees. Frying should take about 10 minutes or until the wings turn a dark golden brown. Remove from oil and place them in a large bowl, add the hot sauce mixture ensuring all of the wings are coated evenly. Serve with blue cheese or ranch dressing and celery sticks. 

Also Nacho's are a favorite at Super Bowl Parties. Here is an easy recipe for Chicken nachos.

Kicking Chicken Nachos

Ingredients

Tortillas Chips

1-2 boneless chicken breast cut in bite size pieces

2 tbsp olive oil

¼ tsp salt

½ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp cumin

½-3/4 tsp cayenne pepper (depending on personal taste)

1 can sliced jalapenos

1 pkg Mexican Cheese blend

1 Can refried beans

1 cup chili (store bought or homemade)

Salsa

Sour Cream

Guacamole

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix together the cut up chicken breasts, olive oil, salt, garlic powder, cumin and cayenne pepper mix together well. In a hot skillet cook the chicken until no longer pink, and completely cooked through.

In a baking dish arrange the tortilla chips in layers. For the first layer add the refried beans (I find it easier to handle when they are heated before trying to put them on the chips). The second layers add the chili over the top. The chicken mixture is the third layer and top that with the shredded Mexican blend cheese. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 10 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is bubbling. 

Once they are done cooking, top with the sliced jalapeno peppers if desired, and serve with salsa, sour cream and guacamole.

These appetizers are sure to keep all of the Super Bowl fans happy, and you will have a party they will remember. Are you ready for some football?
