It would almost be sacri-religious to have a Super Bowl party without serving guacamole, and with good reason - nothing tastes better than this creamy, slightly garlicky avocado dip with crisp tortilla chips. But you really need to make it yourself, and it's the only recipe in the menu that shouldn't be made ahead. But it's super easy - so say adios
to the store-bought variety!

It will be worth it to make a double-batch of the marinated mushrooms, because they will disappear quickly. You can also add some black or green olives to the dish if you'd like.
Chili should be made in quantity and served to a boisterous crowd - it's just the nature of the dish, including this easy Two-Bean Chicken Chili. Turn the meal into a festive gathering by offering lots of toppings, such as diced avocado, shredded cheese, sliced scallions, and chopped olives. A basket of warm cornbread will also make a welcome accompaniment.
This is the recipe I use when making cornbread for a crowd. It bakes into a moist, light and flavorful bread and the jalapenos give it an extra kick of flavor. Watch the how-to video
for making this cornbread.
These incredibly delicious cupcakes deliver a double-chocolate whammy: a deep dark chocolate cake topped with a rich, glossy chocolate ganache icing. They make a perfect ending to a game-day party - plus they're easy to serve and eat!
This is the perfect do-ahead cake, in fact, it's even better-tasting after a day or so after it's been baked. The applesauce and sour cream keep the cake tender and moist for days. After you make this cake once, the recipe will become one of your tried-and-true favorites.
