2 min read

The Chronicle staff has created and tested countless recipes for dips, potato skins, wings and more over the years, and we’ve gathered some of our favorites here to help you celebrate game day.

For this year’s smaller Super Bowl parties, you may need to halve the recipes in some cases.

A Bay Area spread of 11 dips

This array of 11 dips from local cooks, from a creamy lemon dip from Alice Waters of Chez Panisse to Tacolicious’ Chile con Queso, gives you plenty of options.


Spicy Chicken Tacos

This recipe from former Chronicle columnist Jacqueline Higuera McMahan features chicken tenders and ancho chile powder, with classic crispy taco toppings.

Japanese-Inspired Potato Skins

There’s nothing wrong with a tried-and-true spread of chips and dips. But here’s a chance to mix it up with this twist on the classic pub staple of stuffed potato skins from chef Curtis Di Fede.

Michael Mina’s Seven-Layer Dip

When we asked chef Michael Mina to come up with his ultimate Seven-Layer Dip, we had no idea the result would be something so indulgent — and so easy to make. It’s a very approachable — albeit not cheap — play on his signature Caviar Parfait.

4 spicy fried chicken recipes, including wings

Fried chicken is one of those foods that permeate all cultures and become a touchstone, such as San Tung’s dry-fried chicken wings. Nearly every country and region has a variation, every chef a secret method or spice. Here are four examples.

Super Bowl Crab Dip

Inspired by Bill Addison’s Maryland childhood, this recipe graciously allows the use of Dungeness crab. Old Bay Seasoning and Sherry are two Maryland essentials for crab-centric dishes, and California’s beloved Meyer lemon brightens the seafood’s sweetness.
