Most of us are planning to watch the Super Bowl at home this year. That means more Super Bowl food! Here are ideas for fun and delicious game day food with a nod to Kansas City and Tampa Bay. Find BBQ pulled pork, Barbeque Brisket, slow-cooked Cuban pork, and empanadas—plus, classics including chili, ribs, wings, guacamole dip, and more!

Slow Cooker Barbecue Brisket

This BBQ Brisket is so deliciously tender and flavorful, having slow cooked in a tomato-based chili sauce, beer, and brown sugar.

Cuban Pork Recipe

In the Cuban-style dish, the pork simmers slowly and gets very tender as the citrus sauce thickens. Black beans and rice are optional sides, but highly recommended.

Banana Pudding

We love this Banana Pudding with vanilla wafers! Our version is rich and decadent, but also takes almost no time to make! Serve in a casserole dish or have fun with layers and serve in individuals glass jars or goblets. Taste great warm or cold!
