Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps
Cheesy Beer Dip
Nothing screams "Super Bowl" more than cheese and beer, which is why we think this double treat of a recipe is the perfect game-day snack. Cheese, beer, and chopped onions make this 10 minute dip are a game day hostess' dream come true.
Caramelized onions mixed with cheese atop a pretzel cracker sounds easy enough, right? All you need is 10 minutes, a few crackers, a lot of cheese, and a good helping of caramelized onions to make this quick, savory appetizer that's perfect for a crowd.
Pizza may sound like too hearty of a dish to serve as an appetizer, but these tiny, multigrain-crust pizzas are so simple to make, we guarantee they'll become a party staple in your house. Sure to stand out among all the wings, beer, and Buffalo sauce that football parties are known for, these snacks are also a nice way to spruce up a typical Super Bowl party menu.
If you've got a crowd of people coming over and nothing to serve except some leftover refried beans, then this recipe might just be your saving grace. All you really need is 15 minutes, a few crackers, some cheese, and of course, refried beans. But, if you want to add a little zest, tomatoes and jalapeños are the perfect garnish.
