Devils on Horseback from Nom Nom Paleo
If you’re looking for an appetizer that isn’t the same old boring bacon-wrapped dates, try Nom Nom Paleo’s Devils on Horseback. Prunes stuffed with macadamia nut “ricotta”, wrapped in prosciutto and drizzled with balsamic…talk about flavor.
Salsa verde is a great alternative to traditional red salsas, and this one’s special because the veggies are charred slightly before they’re pureed. The result is a smoky flavor that pairs really well with plantain chips.
Sweet potatoes are great, but sweet potatoes that are roasted until the skin crisps, then drizzled with an herb-infused ghee are even better. Serve these with some Pork Chile Verde or Pomegranate Habanero Beef piled high on top.
Buffalo Chopped Chicken Salad from The Clothes Make the Girl
Mel Joulwan of Well Fed and Well Fed 2 is one of my go-to’s for simple but flavor-packed recipes. This chicken salad is so easy to assemble and will feed a crowd. A little bit spicy and super tasty.
Paleo Garlic Artichoke “Hummus” from Meatified
Dips are synonymous with Super Bowl parties, and this one has all the look and taste of hummus without the legumes. Serve this one with some plantain chips for maximum dipping satisfaction.
These sound strange but trust me, they are so good. Take ripe but firm avocado wedges and “bread” them in seasoned crushed pork rinds. Bake until the outside is crunchy for a unique appetizer!
Bacon. Lettuce. Tomato. A classic combination. Instead of relying on bread as the base, these little cups use bacon to hold the lettuce and tomato. Finish with a drizzle of Chipotle Mayo!
Succulent, tender pork with a bit of tang from tomatillos and a little green chile spice is yours when you make this dish. Pile high on top of baked sweet potatoes and finish with some sliced avocado. Yum.
Chili Topped Parsnip Wedges from Meatified
Instead of chili fries, try this version with parsnip wedges from Rach at Meatified. The chili is beanless so it’s Paleo-friendly.
Shredded Chicken BLA Tacos from Paleo Cupboard
Bacon as the taco shell? Why not! Shredded chicken, lettuce and avocado make for a tantalizing game day snack.
Bacon-Wrapped Crab-Stuffed Prawns from Popular Paleo
Shrimp and crab gets all friendly with bacon in this appetizer from Ciarra at Popular Paleo. Make a batch of these for your Super Bowl party, and I bet there won’t be any leftover!
Paleo Guacamole from Paleo Cupboard
Guacamole is a classic party dip, and Amy from Paleo Cupboard delivers with this simple recipe. Try it on top of the Paleo Pork Chile Verde.
Literally one of the simplest recipes that delivers enormous flavor and feeds a bit crowd, this shredded beef will be a hit with your football fans. It goes really well on top of baked potatoes, and it cooks itself. All you have to do is shred the meat at the end.
Paleo Slow Cooker Taco Soup from Popular Paleo
This satisfying soup is made in a slow cooker so you can set it and forget it until it’s time to eat. Serve with all the tasty accompaniments for a warming dish that’s sure to be a favorite.
Asian Meatballs from Nom Nom Paleo
Meatballs are a classic party food: All you need are some toothpicks and you’ve got perfect bite-sized nibbles perfect for everyone from little kids to adults. Serve these with your favorite dipping sauce.
Plantain Nachos from The Clothes Make the Girl
These are genius! I’ve made Mel Joulwan’s Plantain Nachos and they were super-satisfying: perfectly spiced ground beef, crunchy plantain chips and all the right toppings. Put these on your list!
Pineapple, bacon and mini peppers are so delicious together. These are really easy to assemble for a crowd ahead of time so you don’t have to spend the whole time in the kitchen.
