Let's face it, for a Super Bowl party, dips are king. They're easy to make, delicious, can be made ahead of time, and all you need to serve a crowd is a big bowl and a couple of bags of chips. You can, of course, go all out and make some wonderfully inventive dips in fabulous flavors and combinations. But most football fans are happy with onion dip, salsa, and guacamole. These top 10 appetizer dip recipes are all you need for the big day. Make a bunch, make sure you get rid of dips every...MORE two hours and rotate new batches in, and enjoy the game!

    Onion, garlic, and red bell pepper add color and flavor to artichokes enveloped in cream cheese, may, and three more types of cheese in this wonderful dip recipe. It's one of my absolute favorites.

    Guacamole. Linda Larsen
    My guacamole recipe is beautiful in its simplicity. Just avocados, lemon juice, sour cream, and tomatoes. I don't like onions in my guac - add some if you'd like. Double or triple this recipe because it's going to go fast!

    Buffalo Chicken Wings are a wonderful snack for a Super Bowl party, but they're messy to make. And eat. Why not put all that fabulous flavor into one dip? Offer celery sticks, chips, breadsticks, and toasted French bread slices for dipping.

    This is the classic dip recipe everyone knows about, except I added some sautéed onions for extra flavor and use both sour cream and mayonnaise. It's fabulous.

    This dip is very simple, but the flavor is complex and wonderful. Use your favorite cheese and different veggies, but make sure you use the full fat cream cheese and pepperoni for authentic flavor.

    Layered Reuben Dip

    This dip is like a Reuben sandwich; it has all of the same ingredients. Cream cheese, Swiss cheese, Thousand Island Dressing, corned beef, and sauerkraut. It's very hearty and so easy to make. Bake it just before your guests arrive.

    A classic! Use more chili powder and jalapeno chiles if you like it hot; or less chili powder and diced green chiles for a milder version. This dip is creamy, rich, and very flavorful; perfect to serve with nacho cheese taco chips.

    This is also called Seven Layer Dip. It's made of refried beans, salsa, sour cream, avocados, and lots of toppings. This recipe is practically a meal in itself! You could add a layer of cooked, crumbled ground beef or spicy pork sausage on top of the refried beans if you'd like. Serve with tons of tortilla chips.

    Margarita Fruit Dip

    And finally, it's nice to have something sweet as a contrast to all the highly flavored and rich dips in your buffet. This simple and easy choice is wonderful served with fresh fruit. You could also serve it with cookies if you think your crowd would like that better. Yum.
