Unfortunately for those in the dorms on campus, most of the classic game day foods require a stove or an oven (pigs in a blanket, chili, wings – the list goes on), which makes them impossible to cook while living in a dorm. So, to make your game day easier (not to mention tastier), here’s a roundup of some easy Super Bowl snacks you and your friends can make in your dorm:
1. Pico de Gallo
This tomato salsa is delicious and doesn’t require any oven or stovetop time (duh), making it a great option for Super Bowl snacking. While it is one of the more time consuming recipes on this list, it’s also one of the most delicious.
2. Cowboy Caviar
Cowboy caviar is as tasty as its name is fun. Both this recipe and the recipe for the pico de gallo call for half of a red onion, so why not make both? Double the salsa, double the fun.
3. Queso Dip
This may be the easiest queso recipe on the face of the planet, no joke. Putting two ingredients together and cooking them in the microwave is almost foolproof. But that’s ok, you can make the queso and take all of the credit for the amazing dip you worked “so hard” to make. We won’t tell.
Ah, guacamole. Words can’t express my love for wonderful avocado magic. It tastes incredible and it’s dorm friendly, making it a necessary Super Bowl snack (or an anytime snack, really). We’ve got you covered with a simple recipe right here.
5. Seven Layer Dip
When I’m at a party and seven layer dip is being served, you’ll find me hovering over the food table, shamelessly eating as much of it as I can. That, plus its oven-less recipe makes this a great pick if you’re looking for an easy, layer-able Super Bowl food you can assemble in your dorm.
Finally, a game day snack you can make in your dorm that isn’t a dip. Instead of a stove, you cook these dorm room quesadillas using a clothing iron. Just iron up a few quesadillas and you’ll have enough for both you and your friends to enjoy.
