Favorite Superbowl Food?

Okay, friends, I need your help! I am actually having people over to watch the Superbowl on Sunday for the first time ever. Yikes! We have this itty-bitty, non-HD television, which works fine for our sporadic viewing habits, but rarely invites company for viewing. Nevertheless, one of my husband's friends was looking for a place to watch the game. So, he and his wife are coming to watch here!

Many of you know that I absolutely LOVE football. This is the last game of the season, which always makes me a bit teary, but it is also in my top five games of the season, especially since my team is playing! Other favorites usually include the Aggie v. t.u. game, whatever bowl the Aggies are in, and sometimes the national championship game.

Anyway, my point? Oh, yes. Forgive me, we've all got the allergy/sinus/cold virus thing fogging our brains here. I need some ideas of Superbowl foods that (and this is vitally important) can be completely prepared ahead of time, set out just before game time, and sit out the whole game. I am the football fan in the house, remember? I do not get up to heat, stir, plate, or otherwise do any cooking, preparing, or serving except to refill my own plate. Okay, sometimes I beg my husband to do that, too, so I don't miss a play...or a commercial.

Please help! What do you like to eat? Our standards include chips and dip and pigs in a blanket, but I probably need to have more than that on hand for guests.

Oh, one more thing - GO STEELERS!!

Hey Jenny!

I just had a friend post this website of ideas on a messageboard I read. Maybe it will give you a place to start. Good luck!

7 layer dip can be made day before w/ chips (beans, guac, sour cream, tomatoes, black olives, cheddar chz, 7th ingredient is taco seasoning mixed w/ can of refried beans) -no cooking, just layer

queso (Velveeta) w/ picante sauce in crockpot w/ chips

little sausage links in bbq sauce in crockpot

pulled pork w/ bbq sauce in crockpot with buns

meatballs w/ spaghetti sauce in crockpot w/ buns to make sandwhich

hmmmmm, I've never actually Superbowl but these food are super easy to prepare ahead of time.

Chili! Texas style, of course. I have a great recipe if you need it, but I don't think its online. And there are great vegetarian chili recipes - I can easily copy and paste that one- if you have vegetarians coming.
