The Super Bowl is one of the greatest American food days of the year. Die-hards, fair weather fans, and those who are just there for the grub are all tuning in for this annual national pastime to eat, drink, and watch football.
Nachos, wings, dips, and sliders are Game Day classics, but this year we are focusing on dishes that represent the food cultures of the city-based teams that are facing off — the Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To get in the spirit, we’ve collected some recipes to make rooting for these teams a deliciously festive competition. Football is one thing, but which team comes from the best food city? Let’s dig in.
Kansas City is known for being a top barbecue destination. Iconically recognized for all things smoky, meaty, and saucy. If you can’t order takeout from Arthur Bryant’s, try making it yourself, along with some other KC favorites.
Tampa Bay is known for its Cuban-influenced flavors, abundant Gulf Coast seafood, and fresh Florida citrus. Take your pick of any of these recipes, perfect for a day of grazing and entertainment.
For the purists out there, we got you — the nachos shall not be overlooked. These game day classics pair perfectly with a cold one.
Whatever the final score is, you’ll surely be the winner of the Super Bowl this year with these eats. Enjoy and may the best team win!
