Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner, and we know you’re going to get hungry. From traditional Buffalo chicken dip to delicious wings, there are so many popular game day snacks you can cook up in your kitchen. But sometimes, you don’t really have time to prepare snacks with elaborate steps. So why not put together two of your favorite game day foods in one dish: taco dip.

Wing Recipes Perfect for Football Season

This taco dip recipe is relatively easy to prepare. Just mix together the taco sauce, cream cheese and sour cream base the day before your party to let the flavors really combine. After you’re done mixing, keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble the whole dish. If you follow this method, all you have to worry about when your guests arrive is tossing in lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. But of course, you can add on any other toppings that fit your palate, such as jalapeños, bell peppers, olives or anything you have in your pantry.

You can certainly serve this dip with some classic tortilla chips that you can make in your air fryer. Or add some flavors by scooping your dip with Doritos or Fritos in whatever flavor you love the most. If you have leftover food scraps from previous meals, why not make these colorful mixed root veggie chips to also serve on the side with your dip.

Dips are the perfect solution if you want to make something quick and easy for game day. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the absolute best dip recipes for Super Bowl Sunday.
