Question Superbowl Sunday

If you're having people over or going to someones house for a get-together on Superbowl Sunday...what kind of food will be there/you bring? I'm not very much into football & we're going to have a few people over, and am looking for ideas of foods that people will snack on while probably drinking beer & such..

We will be co-hosting a Super Bowl party in Aruba. We are there during the game every year. Last year we had a poolside Super Bowl party that included great appetizers, food and drinks and all this in your swimsuit.

It was extra good because I won $200. from the squares I bought for the game!

Andy M - we're invited, right? I can bring the blender for some kind of blended tropical drink!!

We'll be going to a rather small gathering - I don't have a clue yet what I'll take. One year we did sushi and it was great but I don't feel like doing all that work. I know there will be a pot of chili and well....sushi and chili just doesn't sound right!

I was the one that voted as not interested, dont care about football but I still enjoy a good getogether on occasion. I like to bring something my mom made when I was growing up:
Mini meatballs in a bbq/apricot sauce made in the slow cooker.
Yum! Course I always felt it worked best with Cookies BBQ sauce which is a very sweet molassas sauce to begin with.

We have some friends who host a Super Bowl party every year. I and most of the other women hang out in the kitchen/dining area while the guys watch the game. I could not care less about football - I just enjoy the social aspect

Here's a really tasty low-fat dip:

Tzatziki (Yogurt and Cucumber Sauce)

3 cups low-fat yogurt, plain, drained
1 cucumber, medium
1 clove garlic -- minced
3 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh dill -- chopped
1 teaspoon fresh mint -- chopped
salt -- to taste

Line a colander or strainer with cheesecloth, put it over a bowl, and put the yogurt in the strainer; refrigerate and let drain for 1 hour. Discard liquid. Peel and seed cucumber, and shred in food processor or with large holes of box grater. Let sit about five minutes, then drain and squeeze out excess water. Combine all ingredients and chill at least a few hours. Serve as a dip for crudites and baked pita chips, or as a sauce for gyro sandwiches (grilled chicken in pita pockets with lettuce, tomato, onions and tzatziki).
