Course: Appetizer, Snacks
Cuisine: American
Keyword: boards, party food, super bowl
Servings: 8 people


Hot Appetizers

  • Buffalo cauliflower "wings"
  • soft pretzels see above for resource
  • chicken tenders

Dips and Spreads

  • Ranch or blue cheese
  • spicy + honey mustards
  • Buffalo hummus
  • guacamole
  • ketchup or BBQ sauce for chicken tenders
  • chile con queso

Vegetable Crudites

  • carrots
  • celery
  • Persian cucumbers cut into spears
  • snap peas


  • ruffled or kettle potato chips
  • corn chips


  • cheddar cheese
  • Monterey jack or spicy pepper jack cheese


  • traditional charcuterie like Genoa salami, soppressata, and prosciutto
  • "game day" meat like beef jerky, chicharrones, pepperoni, and turkey pepperoni


  • Prepare Buffalo cauliflower and chicken tenders according to recipes, and frozen soft pretzels according to package directions.
  • While the soft pretzels are heating, prepare the dips. Put each dip in a small bowl or ramekin, then place on the serving board or tray.
  • Place the remaining vegetables, chips, cheeses, and charcuterie on the board around the dips, placing them near the dips or sauces with which they naturally match, and leaving space for the hot Buffalo cauliflower, soft pretzels, and chicken tenders, e.g. Buffalo cauliflower and celery with blue cheese dip, vegetables with Ranch or hummus, corn chips with guacamole and chile con queso.
  • Set aside about one-third to one-half of each of the hot foods and place in a low oven to keep warm until you have to refresh the board. Place the Buffalo cauliflower, soft pretzels and chicken tenders on the board in their reserved spots.
  • Serve immediately.
