How To Set Up A Chili Board For Super Bowl

Posted by Sara Chinnock on

Super Bowl season is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the ultimate game day than with a mouthwatering chili board? Whether you're hosting a small gathering or a big Super Bowl party, setting up a chili board is a surefire way to impress your guests, and it is a straightforward dinner idea during the colder months.



  • A large board
  • Your favorite chili recipe
  • Chili bar toppings and sides (Sour cream/Greek yogurt, cheese, green onions, red onions, jalapenos, tortilla chips/tortilla strips, cornbread/corn muffins, corn, avocado slices, sweet potato fries, etc.)



Here are five simple steps to help you create the ultimate chili feast that will have your guests cheering for more:


Step 1: Choose your chili base. 

Whether it's a classic beef chili, a vegetarian option, or even a spicy chicken variation, pick a chili recipe that will be the star of the board. We highly recommend making the chili ahead of time. Trust us, the longer it simmers and sits overnight, the better the flavors become!


Step 2: Add a variety of toppings. 

Offer a range of toppings like shredded cheese, sour cream, diced onions, jalapenos, corn, and more. These toppings will allow your guests to customize their chili bowls to their liking.


Step 3: Remember the sides! 

Offer an array of delicious sides like cornbread, tortilla chips, and even sweet potato fries. These tasty accompaniments will complement the chili perfectly and provide a variety of textures.


Step 4: Keep it hot and warm! 

Make sure to have a slow cooker or warming trays to keep the chili at a consistent temperature throughout the game. This way, your guests can return for seconds without worrying about cold chili.


Step 5: Presentation is key. 

Arrange the ingredients on a large platter or wooden board, ensuring each component has its own space. Spread out the colors so you don't have green or red items together. Also, add some football-themed decorations to amp up the Super Bowl spirit!
