The Super Bowl is the big deal in the sports world. If one of your teams is participating, a party is practically required. So you need to serve some fun recipes that will satisfy hearty appetites and still give you time and energy to enjoy the party. Lots of meat and rich dips with potato and tortilla chips are required. And you can even sneak in one 'healthy' recipe. Enjoy your party!

These super simple three ingredient appetizers have the most complex flavor. You can use any firm cheese you'd like - Asiago is my personal favorite. Make a double batch of these, because they'll go fast!

This super easy recipe is so good. I use cocktail sauce instead of chili sauce because I like the flavor better. The horseradish gives it a bit of a kick. You can substitute chili sauce if you'd like.

My guacamole has to be made with ripe avocados, lemon juice, sour cream, and tomatoes. But if you don't like any of those things, leave them out! Except for the avocados, of course. I always serve this with nacho tortilla chips for even more flavor. Yum.

Wrap sandwiches are a great choice for the game. Make a bunch ahead of time, cover them and store in the fridge. Bring out a batch every two hours (and remember to discard the sandwiches that have been sitting out) and you'll keep the crowd happy all day. You can make these sandwiches with mini tortillas too, or slice them into 1" or 2" pieces so they become finger food.

Well, okay, if you have to serve Buffalo Wings, make this version! The chicken breasts are tender and moist and full of flavor after being marinated for hours. And the dip is really wonderful - blue cheese salad dressing, sour cream, mayo, and even more blue cheese. Or would that be 'bleu' cheese?
