SUPER BOWL Snacks
NEW TWISTS ON STADIUM FAVORITES AND WINNING PARTY TIPS FROM HOST-WITH-THE-MOST
Super Bowl Sunday is as much about the food as it is the action on the field. We gorge on an estimated 2,400 calories while watching the game ( making it second only to Thanksgiving as an all-American eating holiday). Filling our plates? Everything from wings and pizza to chips and salsa. Here’s a look at what fans gobble at football stadiums— and in living rooms— across the country.
PASS THE nachos
You can’t beat the shareable, crunchy gooeyness of nachos, and stadiums can’t resist piling on the toppings. Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears, serves pork rinds in place of traditional tortilla chips, topped with pulled pork and bacon (pig three ways!). Both Mercedes-Benz Superdome (home of the New Orleans Saints) and Levi’s Stadium (the venue for this year’s battle on Feb. 7) offer seafood nachos. But for clever (and functional) presentation, the prize goes to the Pizza Box
Nachos— classic nachos served in a pizza box—at the Arizona Cardinals’ home field, University of Phoenix Stadium. Try these variations at home.
