Super Bowl Sunday is coming up and if you are like me, you will have a house full of game loving folks to feed and entertain. Actually, if you are like me, you’ll welcome the opportunity to chill out in the kitchen with the non-football game watchers and munch on the goodies over good conversation versus the Super Bowl excitement, but that’s besides the point.
Super Bowl Sunday is a day to fill your buffet up with finger foods, appetizers and desserts galore. I know everyone is gathered together for the game, but it is really the food that matters, right?
As part of my attempt to please everyone, one of my favorite things to serve at our Super Bowl party is Chicken Skewers with a variety of dips. Sweet dips, sour dips, spicy dips, mild dips… with enough dips set out for your chicken skewers, you will hopefully be able to have something served that will please every palate at your party.

Store bought dips are fine. If you are looking for some variety, a good barbecue or ranch dipping sauce from the store can be good filler, but why not take this opportunity to get creative and try out some new recipes? Dips are easy to make and fun to experiment with as the flavor possibilities for a good dip are endless.
This Roasted Red Pepper Dip starts with the base of ranch dressing (bottled or homemade), but is kicked up with some special seasonings and roasted red peppers. Skewer and grill or roast some cubes of chicken breasts, place the skewered chicken into a crockpot on warm to maintain heat during the game, and set out a variety of dipping sauces.
With all this great food, you’ll score a touchdown with your guests, claiming victory for a successful Super Bowl party!
