Most of us are planning to watch the Super Bowl at home this year. That means more Super Bowl food! This year, we’re inspired by the teams: Cincinnati Bengals vs. Los Angeles Rams! Which food would you vote for?

On February 13, 2022, the Cincinnati Bengals will play the Los Angeles Rams for the Super Bowl title. Even if you don’t have a preference on who wins the game, why not vote for your favorite food. We have five recipes representing each team!


Cincinnati Bengals Food

1. Cincinnati Chili

One no-brainer is Cincinnati Chili! This distinct type of chili is made with ground meat, tomato paste, and spices such as cumin and cinnamon. It is then served over hot dogs or over spaghetti and mounded with cheese or onions & beans.

2. Ohio Buckeyes

The famous treat from Ohio is called “Buckeyes” and essentially peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. Our recipe is from an Ohio State Fair blue ribbon winner!

3. BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Historically, Cincinnati had the nickname of “Porkopolis” and still referenced all over the world as “Pig City.” The nickname dates from the mid–19th century, when the Cincinnati meat packing industry led the country. In that tradition, this is one of our best Pulled Pork Sandwiches—and we’ve also included a recipe for BBQ sauce, baked beans and coleslaw.


Don’t forget to add some fries. We’re going with our orange Sweet Potato Fries with sweet and spicy coating and amazing dipping sauce of sour cream, jalapeño, lime juice, and salt.

4. Bengals Orange Ice Cream

Cincinnati is also famous for Graeter’s handcrafted ice cream. If you can’t find Graeter’s in your local area, how about making some “orange” ice cream in honor of the Bengals colors. We’re talking about Sweet Potato Ice Cream! Not kidding! This southern treat is one we’re sure you’ll enjoy. It won us over, earning first place in The 2017 Old Farmer’s Almanac Recipe Contest.

5. Soft Pretzels

Cincinnati is a very German place with more than one of every four local residents claiming German heritage. In that honor, make these soft and buttery pretzels. They’re so easy to make and certainly better than those from any food chain.

Los Angeles Rams Food

The Rams are from L.A. so we’re going with Southern Californian cuisine here.

1. Guacamole

We have to start with guacamole. Most avocados in the U.S. come from Southern California! It’s so easy to make homemade. Pair with some high-quality chips.

2. Fish Tacos

Cool, tangy cabbage slaw cozies up to crispy fish in these tasty Fish Tacos. They are easy to make and delicious to eat! Use any mild fish of choice.

3. Cobb Salad With a Twist

What’s more Southern Californian than a Cobb Salad? For Super Bowl Sunday, serve it on a platter with ingredients arranged in rows down the center so folks can serve themselves a side!

4. Nacho Layer Dip

Oh, yeah. It’s a classic Super Bowl recipe. Layer refried beans, beef, salsa, and cheese in a pan. Bake. Top with sour cream, tomatoes, peppers, olives, and cheese! Serve with tortilla chips. 

Simple, easy, and everyone loves it! Credit: CaseyMartin/Shutterstock.

5. Classic Burgers

In SoCal, the famous burger joint is “In N Out burger.” Nothing beats an old-fashioned hamburger and the best burgers are really quite basic. Check out our Basic Burger recipe. If you’d like a vegetarian option, try our pumpkin burger.
