Easy Football Snacks
These easy football snack recipes fit the bill whether you're looking for paleo, keto, or Whole30 finger foods. From savory to spicy, crispy to crunchy, these stress-free appetizers have something for everyone.
Buffalo Chicken Wings Two Ways — Chicken wings are required for football watching at our house. Whether you use an airfyer or smoke them on your grill, these wings are perfect for game day!
- Air Fryer Chicken Wings — These air fryer Buffalo wings couldn't be easier. And the easy 2-ingredient Buffalo sauce is paleo, keto, and Whole30!
- Smoked Chicken Wings— We use our smoker for these smoky chicken wings. But you can smoke them on the grill as well. For Buffalo style, toss the wings in melted ghee and your favorite clean hot sauce.
Ranch Dip — This easy paleo, keto and Whole30 ranch dip is a great non-dairy alternative for dipping chicken wings. But don't stop there, serve with lots of celery, carrot, and red pepper sticks for dipping.
Easy Smoked Shrimp — This smoked shrimp recipe takes just a few minutes. It's easy to do, especially if you are already smoking the chicken wings.
Smoky Pork Sliders — I use my easy paleo sausage recipe to make pork sliders, and swap cilantro for the sage. Serve them in lettuce cups, topped with guacamole and salsa.
Perfect Simple Guacamole —This is my favorite easy guacamole recipe, and it's always a big hit.
Quick Tomato Salsa — Tomatoes, jalapeno, lime, and cilantro make this fresh salsa.
Snack Mix — This paleo, keto and Whole30 snack mix is crunchy, smoky, salty, perfect for snacking and so easy to make!
Roasted Cauliflower Hummus — Serve this keto and paleo version of hummus with olives and cucumber slices. I like to bias cut the cucumbers to have more surface area to hold the dip.
Baba Ganoosh — Another Greek favorite. Drizzle with olive oil and serve this roasted garlic baba ganoush alongside the cauliflower hummus with olives and cucumber wedges.
Grilled Proscuitto Wrapped Asparagus — This super easy appetizer takes just 2 ingredients and 5 minutes on the grill.
Did you know Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest food holiday in the U.S. after Thanksgiving?
