    How about cheeseburger mac n cheese? I don’t use a recipe but roughly what I do is:

    Cook the pasta and the ground beef separately. I like adding chopped onions, Lawry’s seasoned salt, and garlic powder to the ground beef while it cooks. If I’m feeling fancy I add bacon. 

    Once everything is all cooked and the pasta is drained, put it all in the same pot on low heat and add approximately 2 cups of cheese – for 1 box of pasta and 1lb of ground beef (I like cheddar or cheddar jack, cheddar jack melts a little creamier but if you want to do the traditional cheeseburger you can use american, or you can also use velveeta) – you can add butter or cream/milk to make it more saucy less sticky-cheesey. Personally I like the sticky-cheesey lol.

    Sometimes I add some frozen spinach in so I can pretend I’m not clogging my arteries, sometimes I add some relish on top, there are a lot of ways to play with this.

    We make this dip a lot:

    Cream Cheese (one block)

    Hormel chili (no beans)

    Cheddar cheese or colby jack

    You spread the cream cheese in a layer in a dish (you can use a pie dish – but whatever will fit in microwave), then the hormel chili, then the cheese. Microwave for 15 minutes and you’re done! It’s such a good dip!

    I just shared this on another post yesterday but one of my go tos is sausage balls. Ground sausage, bisquick, shredded cheddar cheese mixed together and rolled into balls then bake in oven.

    I also love veggie trays at gatherings like these too with cool dips so that I don’t feel too overloaded

    ETA:  Stuffed jalopenos! Slice them in half, stick a cube of cheese it the middle (cream cheese, pepper jack, cheddar, whatever), wrap in bacon and put them in the oven! You might have to cook the bacon a little before hand

    I had a whole list of stuff but I don’t think we’re having a party after all. Lol! 

    I planned on wings (hubby would die if there’s football minus wings) homemade Chex mix, bacon wrapped lil smokies, hot wing dip (my FAVE!) and maybe guacamole and considered potato skins (I was craving them that day. Lol!) 

    I thought to round it out I’d also do some type of slider. There are tons on Pinterest that use Hawaiian rolls and the pizza ones looked especially easy and yummy. 

    Of course, you need a dessert. I was considering a fruit pizza since it’s kinda light alongside the heavy greasy main courses. 

    Now im hungry…

    Buffalo chicken dip! It is filling and my favorite thing to snack on at parties. I always eat it with chips but we have celery with it too for those who want to make it a little lighter

    We are doing tacos/nachos as the “main dish” because it is sooo easy. But honestly people don’t usually eat the main dish that often because the Superbowl for us just is a giant snack fest haha

    And I make some bomb ass brownies so I’m going to make a ton of those if somebody gets a sweet tooth

    Last year I did buffalo chicken lasagna and (I hope) Boston (gets) cream(ed) pie cupcakes. This year we’re doing a taco bar and possibly a repeat of the cupcakes. Not sure if I’m in the baking mood but I’m in a I hope NE loses mood. I live in NE so I’m surrounded by patriots fans.

    Chili is an easy entree that holds well–I make a version of this, with half stew beef and half ground beef in a slow cooker: https://www.emerils.com/120789/emerils-chili

    Chicken wings, jalapeno poppers and buffalo dip are great and help to cushion the amount of alcohol that can be consumed over the course of the day. If you’re stuck and need easy additions check out Trader Joe’s–they offer many tasty frozen options.

    Jalapeno poppers are a necessity for the super bowl! Lots of good recipes out there. I usually do one that’s wrapped in pastry and one that isn’t for the non-starch eaters. Whole Foods has buckets of different flavored wings you can pick up and I love their french onion dip with some fancy potato chips. Chili is a favorite, too. I love it when people offer a non-bean chili as an option because it lets me be on my eating plan and still enjoy.

    OrangeHighlighter :  Little smokies in BBQ sauce in a crock pot or on the stove is easy and delish! I’m making buffalo chicken dip, here’s a recipe: http://www.tammileetips.com/crock-pot-buffalo-chicken-dip/

    This is also easy and delicious: https://juliasalbum.com/broccoli-bacon-ranch-pasta-salad/

    Something for a main dish that would be easy could be a slider bar- throw a pork roast in the crock pot and shred it and then get buns and fixings.

    You can always do sausage or meatballs in the crock pot for sandwiches.  Same goes with making a crock pot of BBQ shredded pork or chicken.  I’m also always good for a baked ziti and throw some texas toast in the oven or Aldis has olive garden style garlic breadsticks

    We’re doing a fully-loaded nacho bar! Chips, nacho cheese, black beans, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, jalapenos, chicken, steak, etc.

    Also, veggie platter with hummus, fresh fruit salad, buffalo chicken dip, 7-layer dip, and maybe some cookies or brownies with ice cream. 

    Go Rams!
