The Super Bowl is more than just a football game. The parties to watch the game, or the commercials, are filled with delicious bites and good friends. Whether your house is hosting a party or attending one, a super dish is as important as a winning touchdown.

When it comes to Super Bowl food, options are plentiful. Here are some food suggestions that might be talked about more than the commercials.

Made to order sliders

Who doesn't love a juicy little slider on a toasted bun? The downside is that no one would want to grill outside in the polar chill. The Cuisinart Griddler creates the perfect grilled flavor conveniently on the kitchen counter. The extra large grilling surface is perfect for large crowd cooking. Juicy little sliders seasoned to perfection make for a delicious half time snack. Most importantly, all your cooking is done on the kitchen counter. There is no need to brave the elements or miss a moment of the big game.

Not you boring dip

During football parties, a few traditional dips tend to make an appearance on the snack table. This year elevate the dips with some grown-up flavors. The Gracious Gourmet offers a huge selection of pestos, spreads, tapenades, and chutneys in delicious flavor combinations. The Hatch Chile Pesto offers heat to a guacamole.

Check out this recipe using the Hatch Chile Pesto

Sally's Hatch Chili Guacamole

3 ripe Haas Avocados

Juice of one lime

1/2 jar The Gracious Gourmet Hatch Chile Pesto

1 bunch of scallions, green part only finely sliced

1 teaspoon salt

Peel, seed, and coarsely mash the avocados. Add the other ingredients and mix well, being careful not to break up the avocados too much. Refrigerate for a couple of hours to meld flavors. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips or vegetables.

Snacks for all

Food allergens are common. From gluten intolerance to nut issues, hosts need to consider guests dietary concerns. A few snack options like Van's chips are a great solution. These chips offer the crunchy, chip snack everyone craves yet doesn't alienate guests with food allergies. With flavors like Nacho, Nacho Man and Mighty BBQ, the host will be re-stocking the bowl before half time.

These ideas are just a few suggestions for a Super Bowl party. What is on your menu?
