30 Nacho Recipes Practically Guaranteed to Be Better Than the Commercials During Your Super Bowl Watch Party


1. Oven-baked Buffalo Wings

Let’s kick things off with the O.G. Save yourself the mess of frying by roasting the chicken in an amped-up hot wing sauce instead.

2. Everything Chicken Wings

The sauce is as simple as spiking melted butter with homemade everything bagel seasoning (although you could easily substitute store-bought to save time).

3. Crispy Baked Cauliflower ‘wings’

Vegetarians on the guestlist? They’ll be thrilled to see these plant-based alternatives on the menu.

4. Cilantro, Lime And Yogurt Grilled Chicken Wings

Bust out the grill pan to give everyone a taste of summer in the dead of winter. There’s also a secret ingredient that’s essential to the zingy marinade: pickle brine.

5. Honey Garlic Jerk Chicken Wings

The air fryer helps these wings achieve a crackly, crispy crust in 20 minutes, but you can bake them in the oven instead for about twice as long, until the wings’ internal temperature hits 165°F and the juices run clear when poked with a knife.

6. Easy 7-ingredient Mango Pineapple Habanero Hot Wings

Spicy, sweet, tangy and downright addictive. Coat the wings in baking powder for maximum crispness.

7. Garlic Parmesan Wings

Even a vampire would risk his eternal life to sink his fangs into these. The sauce calls for garlic powder, but we might just swap in roasted garlic instead.

8. Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Finish them off with a spritz of lime and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro.

9. Sticky Baked Chinese Chicken Wings

It’s your pantry’s time to shine, since the marinade includes heavy hitters like soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar and sesame oil.

10. Baked Boneless Honey Bbq Chicken Wings With Spicy Ranch

We’ll be slathering the herby, jalapeño-kissed ranch dressing on just about everything from now on, thank you very much.

11. Baked Chicken Wings

To cut down on messiness, opt for coating the wings in a homemade spice rub instead of dousing them in sauce. This one stars smoked and regular paprika, dry mustard, garlic powder and onion powder.

12. Korean Fried Chicken

Bonchon has nothing on these double-fried, impossibly crunchy chicken wings coated in honey-soy, spicy Korean BBQ and classic Buffalo sauces.

13. Pomegranate Honey Wings

Sweet-and-sour pomegranate juice is reduced on the stove with brown sugar and honey until thick. After a stint in the oven, the sauce turns super sticky and drool-worthy.

14. Bbq Chicken Wings

Simply take your favorite store-bought barbecue sauce and spruce it up with a drizzle of sriracha and minced garlic.

15. Phnom Penh Cambodian-style Fried Chicken Wing Recipe

Reason number 596 to always have fish sauce in your pantry. Instead of dunking the wings in creamy dressing, roll them in a mix of salt, black pepper and lime juice.

16. Truly Crispy Oven-baked Chicken Wings

Choose your fighter: honey garlic, honey mustard, ranch, sriracha mayo or pink sauce.

17. Baked Chicken Wings With Thai Peanut Sauce

The ginger-coconut peanut sauce acts as both a marinade and dip for the chicken wings. All they need before hitting the table is a spritz of lime and a flourish of sliced scallions and cilantro.

18. Buttermilk Deep-fried Chicken Wings

Sure, the scallion-ranch dip is to die for, but we’re betting the wings taste just as heavenly atop a bed of mashed potatoes.

19. Lemon Pepper Wings

A little fresh lemon juice, lemon zest and chopped herbs go a long, long way.

20. Orange Honey Bbq Wings

Store-bought orange juice works, but you’ll certainly be rewarded for squeezing your own. Seville or Valencia oranges would be best.

21. Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Complete with honey-Buffalo sauce. Thanks to the handy air fryer, these saucy gems are only 16 minutes away.

22. Sticky Honey, Garlic And Chile Glazed Chicken Drumettes

Sambal chile sauce is the source of all the glaze’s heat. Serve the chicken with a generous helping of crushed roasted peanuts and thin-sliced green onions.

23. Buffalo Cauliflower Nuggets

Instead of roasting plain cauli florets and tossing them in sauce, these nuggets are battered and fried until crisp and golden brown.

24. Grilled Vietnamese Chicken Wings

Lemongrass and fish sauce are the keys to the overnight marinade’s unique flavor. TBH, no substitutes will do.

25. Coca-cola Chicken Wings

You’re already loading the fridge with soda for the big game, right? Reserve a can to create a killer sauce that your guests won’t be able to put their finger on.

26. Chipotle Honey Baked Chicken Wings

Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce pack a major smoky, sweet-and-spicy punch.

27. Sticky Mango Curry Oven-baked Boneless Wings

Boneless wings mean you won’t have to clean up a bunch of stray chicken bones once the party is over (and that your guests can use forks and knives instead of their hands).

28. Baked Apple Butter Brown Sugar Wings

As if the autumnal four-ingredient glaze wasn’t enticing enough, wait until you try the sriracha cream drizzle.

29. Bourbon Honey Char Siu Wings

Char siu pork traditionally gets its vibrant red hue from red fermented bean curd, aka tofu that’s been preserved with red yeast rice or red rice koji.

30. Crockpot Chicken Wings

Because your oven is already packed with nachos, sliders and spinach-artichoke dip for the Super Bowl.

31. Extra Crispy Air Fryer Naked Chicken Wings In Vietnamese Fish Sauce

Despite its bold, umami-laced flavor, the sauce requires minimal work and ingredients to come together.

32. Smokehouse Almond Chicken Wings And Garlic Sauce

The tangy four-ingredient dip would taste just as divine on fried fish, onion rings, steak or fried pickles.

33. Crispy Korean Chicken Wings With Gochujang Sauce

Serve these savory numbers with something crunchy and refreshing, like coleslaw, pickled daikon radish or kimchi.

34. Spicy Cauliflower Cheese ‘wings’ With Tahini Ranch

This one goes out to the vegetarians at your party. The cauliflower is first tossed in a spicy Parmesan marinade. Once it’s partially roasted, cheddar cheese is sprinkled on top and baked until crispy.

35. Baked Brown Sugar Chicken Wings With Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Where does the dipping sauce get its unique earthiness and signature tang, you ask? We have goat cheese and sour cream to thank.

36. Smoked Chicken Wings

If you own a smoker, this recipe is destined to be a repeat at your place. If you don’t own a smoker…well, these wings are a darn good reason to get one.

37. Thai Red Curry Chicken Wings

Thanks to zero-calorie brown sugar substitute in the sauce, these chicken wings are totally keto-friendly.

38. Pineapple Jalapeño Chicken Wings

Might we suggest serving these sweet-and-spicy handhelds with grilled pineapple rings? Consider them a refreshing palate cleanser.

39. Game-day Baked Chicken Wing Platter

Like charcuterie, only a million times better. Take your pick from Thai-inspired chile garlic, Buffalo, sesame hoisin and jalapeño tomatillo sauces.
