Here is the definitive, must have, end all be all, no questions asked, greatest list of Super Bowl party food. 

If you don't have at least 100% of this food at your house on Sunday you have the palette of a dung beetle, and should be made to live in a padded cell 100 feet under ground.

    Chili

    I shouldn't admit to pandering to the masses, but I put chili on this list because I see it at every Super Bowl party I attend. I assume people like it. I don't get excited for chili; I get excited for the other items. That being said, if you don't have it at your party you don't care about other people ... plain and simple.

    Veggie Platter

    The veggie platter is important for two reasons: using the vegetables to get the ranch dip to your mouth, and at #9 on this list, shows how much I don't respect chili.

    Deli Platter

    The choice of 4-5 different kinds of meat, with 2-3 different kinds of cheese, and the ability to make your own sandwich is an incredible feeling. It's like you're in high school shop class all over again.

    Bacon

    If you're not wrapping it with bacon, you're not doing it right.

    Meatballs

    If it's meat and in the shape of a ball, you're about to have some fun! Meatballs are versatile too! They can be served with many sauces. My favorite is ALL SAUCES.

    Spinach Artichoke Dip

    Best dip in the game.

    Sliders

    The first food in the "blank canvas" series. When you have a "blank canvas" you have no restrictions and therefore can treat this as an aritst. Be creative. Sliders aren't just for burgers anymore.

    Pizza

    Another "blank canvas" food. Pizza is right up there with breathing and water as life's necessities. You will please EVERYONE when you have a pizza. Just do me a favor and don't make a cheese only pizza. It's lazy.

    Pigs in a Blanket

    One of the tastiest items on the list. They can be eaten in one bite, and can be dipped in a variety of sauces. They go fast so make sure you eat a lot of these early. Definitely a first half food.

    Tip: Throw other people at the party off by complimenting the chili. Once they're distracted by the chilli, move in for the pigs in a blanket kill. Repeat.

    Buffalo Chicken

    Buffalo chicken has replaced baseball as America's pastime. Give me tenders, wings, or dip. It's all amazing when it's buffalo-ized. If it doesn't have blue cheese to dip then you're not doing it right. Sadly, without blue cheese buffalo chicken is outside the top ten.
