Many of these recipes take less than 15 minutes to prepare, so they are perfect for a last-minute appetizer. You’ll be snacking in no time!

Savory Dips & Sauces

Every football game requires at least one delicious dip. You can mix and match these options for a delicious snack bar paired with various chips, crackers, and sliced veggies for dipping.

1. Black Bean Dip.

This black bean dip is the easiest option you can bring to a party. It’s made with a handful of pantry ingredients and comes together in just 5 minutes. The flavor is so amazing that people may think you bought it from a restaurant. 

2. Guacamole.

This is the best guacamole you’ll ever taste! Everyone will ask you for the recipe once it disappears fast. Be sure to buy firm avocados at the store at least 3 to 4 days before you plan on making this for the most foolproof results. 

3. Cottage Cheese Dip

This high-protein dip tastes like your favorite ranch dressing, but it’s made without mayo. Add some jarred jalapeños to the blender to make a jalapeno ranch dressing, and serve it with pretzels or sliced veggies.

  1. That healthy queso dip sounds enticing!

    I’m going to my first Superbowl party this Sunday and I plan to make baked gobi manchurian (indochinese cauliflower in chili sauce). I’ve never made the original, which is fried, but all the recipes I see online look super good, and I found many recipes doing baked ones. So, I can go to the party knowing there will be some good and healthy choices!

  2. This is awesome, I’m making a bunch of it! Knowing my group, the women will love it and the men will order pizza.

  3. Hi Megan,

    Love your blog!

    I just found out that I am severely intolerant to lemon. Is it ok to omit the lemon juice in the Queso and Spinach dip?

    Thanks 🙂

    1. The cool thing about these recipes, is you can taste as you go. If you leave out the lemon juice, you may like it “as is” or you may want to add a bit of acid to balance the flavors– maybe a dash of apple cider vinegar would work instead? I’d use MUCH less vinegar than lemon juice, though. It’s strong stuff! Please let us know if you have any success!

      1. Thanks for the suggestion! I tried the spinach dip this afternoon and used 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar instead of the lemon juice. I also doubled the onion powder because I can’t do garlic. It turned out great, very tasty 🙂
