The Big Game
The Super Bowl® is no time to indulge your lighter sensibilities. Nope--football food should be hearty, spicy, and with any luck, pretty messy, too! So get together with friends, cheer for your favorite team, pick a favorite ad, and eat tailgate favorites with help from Allrecipes.

Food Lovers' Trivia
Q: What is a Sloppy Joe?
Rave Review!
These Buffalo Chicken Rolls were a huge hit at our Super Bowl® party! I used mozzarella and blue cheese, rolled into spirals, and served with chunky blue cheese and ranch dressing. A great way to have the taste of wings without all the fat and calories!

Super Sunday
There's a game this Sunday? As if you didn't know! The Super Bowl® deserves super food, so keep your gridiron fans happy with these football treats.
Need a Napkin?
You definitely don't want to fumble with any of these sandwiches. Bring in extra blockers--namely lots of napkins! Chips and Dips
Here's the play from scrimmage: hand off a chip, run an end route to the dip, scoop, and enjoy. It might not score any points, but it'll taste great! Nachos
Worried about the dip getting intercepted from the chip? Then nachos are your best defense. Bake on the cheese and toppings for a surefire touchdown. Spicy
The wide receiver's not the only one with a hot route to run. Hot wings, jalapeno poppers, and spicy chili will fire up your tastebuds more than a wicked hit across the middle.

Sloppy Joe
Food Lovers' Trivia Tidbit
A Sloppy Joe is a sandwich composed of a hamburger bun topped with a mixture of cooked ground beef and spicy tomato sauce. The name seems to be related to its appearance and the fact that it's messy to eat.

This sandwich is layered in a round loaf of crusty bread. It's best done a day ahead, which makes for an easy serve.
