A crowd is coming!  But you're ready.  With any or all of these recipes, no matter who wins, people will walk away happy. There's buffalo chicken chili, spicy dip, cheese sandwiches, shrimp kebabs, glazed wings, deviled eggs, milkshakes, and even a surprise dessert....

    This guacamole has a nice hit of Sriracha sauce, which my kids LOVE, and use on pretty much anything they want to add a bit of spice to.  But if you're not up for making homemade guacamole, then grab one of the many flavors of Wholly Guacamole available in supermarkets everywhere.  (Save some to top the chili!)

    These sandwiches are best hot from the pan. Cut these into little squares for everyone to grab! You can also do this with other sandwiches like this Ultimate BLT Sandwich. (Can't decide? Then do both with the Ultimate BLT Grilled Cheese.) And if you're looking for dessert, try these heavenly Pretzel Peanut Butter S’mores Sandwiches.

    These are so fast, so simple, and so fresh tasting. Kebabs also make it super easy to serve.

    The sweet and salty glaze is fairly addictive, and using a slow cooker means less hands-on work.

    Use either soft or slightly crumbly goat cheese for this, adjusting the amount depending on how pungent the cheese is.  A few chopped chives on top add color and additional flavor, or a few minced jalapenos add “hey now!”

    White beans and chicken combine with tangy hot sauce to bring the distinctly popular taste of buffalo wings into a hearty chili.  Don't forget plenty of topping options, like jalapenos, sour cream, sliced olives, shredded cheese, and salsa!

    While strawberry shortcake looks gorgeous and impressive, it's quite easy to make.  A slightly unexpected way to end a Superbowl party!
