Super Bowl Sunday Entertaining Menu

Everything in this menu is made for lounging and watching the game: bowls of chili, dips and snacks to munch on, cookies to eat without a plate. After heating the chili on the stove, you can transfer it to a slow cooker to keep it hot for a few hours, so everyone can grab what they want when they want it.
