Super Bowl Sunday is nearly here, and that means one thing: Snack time.
Sure, some people are just there for the halftime show. And others are all about the commercials. (Apparently, there's even a game happening.) But we're there for the snacks—and particularly, the dips!
To help make sure your own lineup is ready for peak performance, we've arranged two dozen of our favorite Super Bowl Dips, from classics like Buffalo, to wild cards like Spicy Sesame Guacamole. So no matter who plays, you win!
Blue Cheese Dip
Sorry Ranch lovers, but in the great Buffalo wings dipping sauce debate, we're firmly #TeamBlueCheese.
Classic Buffalo Chicken Dip
Want the flavor without the mess of chicken wings? Use shredded rotisserie to make this easy-to-eat dip. The whole thing comes together in just 20 minutes!
Pro-tip, warm the tortilla chips in the oven a little bit just before serving. You'll feel like you're at your favorite hole-in-the-wall.
Roasted Tomatillo and Poblano Salsa
You can't have too many salsas on the table! This verde version is bright and tangy.
Pair this creamy yogurt dip with fresh cut veggies or pita chips!
The Ultimate Guacamole
This is the classic, no-nonsense version: mash some avocado with a smidge of olive oil, salt, and pepper, and you're done. The trick? Use just-ripe avocados.
Want to add some pizzaz to your guac? We use traditional toasted pepitas—or pumpkin seeds—to give it both flavor and crunch.
Spicy Sesame Guacamole
Want to get even wilder? Crunchy sesame seeds, salty soy sauce, and a pop of chili garlic make for a surprise hit.
Everything Bagel Dip
If you're looking for something a touch more elegant for the Super Bowl, consider rillettes. An old-fashioned method of preserving meat in fat or cream, it turns out to be one of those impossibly tasty cracker toppings. Here, cooked salmon soaks in wine and crème fraîche for a treat that's sure to disappear fast.
Another must-have Super Bowl dip is, of course, salsa. Skip the jars and try this fresher pico-de-gallo take, which blends sweet pineapple with quite-spicy serrano peppers. (For a less intense flavor, sub in jalapeños.)
This rich, fancy, herby dip is perfect for homemade onion rings — which we also show you how to make!
Skillet Spinach-Artichoke Dip with Fire-Roasted Bread
Whip up this creamy, gooey spinach and artichoke dip, then toast some crusty bread to scoop up all that cheesy goodness.
Want a fresh-tasting dip for veggies and breads? This cucumber-and-dill concoction is elegant and delicious!
Ranch dressing is an easy base for this delicious party dip.
Dill Scallion Dip
A simple base of sour cream and mayo, but vastly improved with fresh dill, lemon zest, and a bit of garlic: Potato chips, you may have met your match.
Cucumber Yogurt Dip
Served chilled with pita chips or cut up veggies, this recipe is perfect for a slightly healthier Super Bowl option.
Lemon Goat-Cheese Dip
Impress your guests without spending hours in the kitchen with this rich, zesty dip that takes only seconds to prepare.
Hatch Pineapple Salsa
This fresh pico de gallo style salsa will give your tortillas a sweet-spicy kick! It's also great as a hot-dog topping.
Herbed Goat Cheese Dip
This creamy mixture is flavored with scallions, parsley, and lemon zest.
This Southern classic is a must-have for your party spread.
Caramelized Onion Dip with Crispy Shallots
This dip will show you just how worthwhile it is to take the time to fully caramelize onions—and fry shallots—turning three simple ingredients into an irresistible treat.
Queso Fundido with Roasted Poblano Peppers and Chorizo
Mexican beer and three types of cheese give this dip its big flavor.
