Super Bowl XLVIII is almost upon us. If you’re not a Seahawks or Broncos fan, that means you’re spending your time focusing on one thing — Super Bowl food. I’m not a huge football fan, but I am a huge food fan (if you haven’t already guessed). That means this Sunday gives me yet another reason to create and consume mounds of delectable goodies.
I was attempting to finalize this weekend’s menu when I found myself scrolling through some of my own Cooking On Empty recipes. To my surprise, I have a lot a dishes that would be perfect for an easy, cheap, and delicious Super Bowl party. To make it easier, I’ve complied them all in one place.
Here are the top five Cooking On Empty dishes for the perfect Super Bowl party.

I recently took a knife skills class and like any good educational experience, it inspired me to dice. Dicing is the term for cutting food into small 1/4 inch squares.
Dicing is a rarity in my cooking repertoire. There are very few times I must summon my dicing skills with dinner go-tos like baked chicken and fish tacos. So, I had to pick the right recipe to practice my new craft. In an effort to continue my education, I pulled out a pound of potatoes and began dicing.
After completing my potato-cutting marathon, I decided to make the one dish where diced potatoes are the star — home fries.

My first week at a desk job and I’m already pulled back into the kitchen. My new office held a company wide dip off. You heard me right, a dip off.
The eccentric CEO put out a call to action for the most creative dips. Entries spanned from salsa to cookie dough spread. Each entry was rated on taste, appearance, and creativity and the wining entry received a $250 grand prize.
