It’s time for the the NFC and AFC Championship games January 20, as the ramp up to Super Bowl LIII on February 3 continues.
Knowing many of you will celebrate with watch parties this weekend, here’s my four recipe picks for each team. Good luck and enjoy the games!
Kansas City Chiefs
A fun take on the traditional yogurt parfait or ice cream sundae, this recipe is definitely a conversation starter! Combining all of our favorite parts of a barbecue meal into one easy portable dish, this recipe is easily customizable to include your favorite bbq sauce and protein. Recipe here.
Because I’m from Missouri, I may be a little partial; hence the “Masters of the Universe” pizza. It’s a hearty stuffed crust pizza layered with a four-meat blend of sausage, bacon, Canadian bacon and pepperoni, with black olives and bell peppers—all smothered in gooey melted Mozzarella cheese served with a side of red sauce for dipping. Recipe here.
From Guest Chef Jim Bailey, this recipe is perfect for game day and you can also use sliced jalapeño peppers with Monterey Jack cheese and cream cheese for a Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Pretzel! Recipe here.
If you’re in town for the game, here’s a must for your to-do list—The Big Biscuit Restaurant in Kansas City. It will also get you out of those sub-zero temperatures! Information here.
New England Patriots

Crispy Maple Chipotle Hot Wings are a great appetizer, party dish or snack. We added the craveable smoky-sweet flavor combination of rich maple syrup and smoky-hot chipotle chilies in fiery adobo sauce to our favorite hot wing recipe for a bold flavor upgrade! Recipe here.

Hearty, spicy chili made with tender steak. Who can resist? This recipe yields a gallon for the game-time gang. Recipe here.
New Orleans Saints
Rich garlicky beef pan gravy with bits of falling-apart tender roast beef, affectionately known as debris (pronounced DAY-bree) in New Orleans, takes this classic roast beef po’ boy over the top. Be sure to have plenty of napkins for this messy-good sandwich. Recipe here.
Imagine warm Café du Monde-style beignets topped with a mountain of delicate powdered sugar and rich French roast coffee, right in your own home. Now imagine those wonderful flavors paired together in a delicious ice cream sandwich! Recipe here.
Hearty slow-simmered traditional gumbo served ladled over steamed white rice. Traditionally made with smoked ham, jumbo shrimp, okra, and just a hint of Cajun seasoning for that spicy kick. Recipe here.
