The big game is just about here…The Super Bowl or as some are calling it…the Harbowl! This year the 49ers and Ravens will go head to head on the field. But more importantly…what will you be serving? We put together a table full of Super Bowl Snackin’ including Cowboy Chili.

What’s better than the Super Bowl? Maybe the commercials during the Super Bowl…but in my opinion….the food!  Last week we shared 50 Super Bowl Recipes for you to serve up, today we have a super easy Touchdown Mix, Snacks and Cowboy Chili served on a really fun Football Tablecloth with plates and napkins from Walmart.

Super Bowl Snackin’ Menu

  • Cowboy Chili – recipe below
  • Touchdown Snack Mix – recipe below
  • TGIF Cheddar Bacon Chips – these are great, we were all fighting over them
  • Cantina Thin Tortilla Chips

Touchdown Snack Mix Recipe

  • Popcorn Indiana Movie Theatre Popcorn – this comes already popped
  • M&M’s Snack Mix Milk Chocolate – we found this in the candy aisle
  • Chex Mix Traditional – always a favorite in our house

Mix all snacks together in a large bowl.

To serve…cut about 3 inches off a lunch bag, fold over top and fill with Touchdown Snack Mix

The Cantina Thin Tortilla Chips were served in a football dish, with shredded cheese on the side for the Cowboy Chili.

Now let’s talk about this Cowboy Chili that Doug made. Although it’s delicious, it does have a little kick, so if you are like me… and a wimp when it comes to spicy food…you can certainly leave out the jalapeno pepper. The recipe was inspired by the Spicy Bacon Cowboy Chili from White on Rice Couple.

And although it’s Chili, it’s thick enough to use chips for dipping.

Before we get to the Cowboy Chili recipe, let’s chat about the Table…

For the Football Tablecloth, we started with a paper tablecloth we found in the party supplies area at Walmart, it was only $2. We had planned to mark the lines of the field with white Duck Tape, but when we found this tablecloth already done we were excited…it saved us time and money. We did want to add a little something though, so we found the numbers near the crayons, and simply applied them to the tablecloth with adhesive tape runner.

I think the Football Tablescape is not only fun for the Super Bowl, but Tailgating Parties or even a Football Themed Children’s Party.
