20 Super Bowl Recipes That Los Angeles Rams Fans Will Devour

Super Bowl 2022 is (almost) here, and that means it’s time to eat our weight in nacho cheese, potato skins and ridiculously long party subs. But when you’re an L.A. Rams fan (sorry, Bengals), not just any snack will do. This year, we’re using the fine city of Los Angeles as inspiration for our game day spread, meaning there will be plenty of tacos, doughnuts and avocado fries on the menu. Now, the ultimate question: beery Marys or beergaritas?

45 Mini Super Bowl Snacks Everyone Will Crave

1. Quesabirria Tacos

These trendy handhelds are so worth the hype. We tapped a Jalisco chef for an authentic beef birria recipe, meaning you can indulge in these cheesy tacos without the help of your favorite taqueria.

2. Copycat In-n-out Animal-style French Fries

This fast food side is a national treasure for a reason. You'll want to make a triple batch, trust.

3. Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Despite its name, these drool-worthy gems were actually invented in Los Angeles. Two restaurants—Philippe The Original and Cole's—each claim to be the masterminds behind the sandwich.

4. Bacon Guacamole

Not only is this savory guac the perfect match for tortilla chips, but it's also an epic California burger topper, if you ask us.

5. Hot Pastrami Sliders

Lead the Rams to victory with a tasty ode to L.A. mainstay Canter’s Deli. These sammies are piled high with pastrami, Swiss cheese and jalapeños and brushed with honey butter.

6. Mini Chicken And Waffles

Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles has nothing on you. Serve these minis with plenty of hot sauce and maple syrup for dipping.

7. Avocado ‘fries’

Pay delicious homage to California’s beloved state crop. These creamy, dunkable gems only require six ingredients and 45 minutes to come together.

8. Mini California Sushi Cones

L.A. is home to some seriously top-tier Japanese food, including sushi. Make your own California rolls at home using real crab instead of imitation to blow your guests away.

9. Carnitas Tamale Pie

Provide your party with all the flavor of tamales in a much simpler package that only take 55 minutes to prepare. (The shredded pork carnitas on top merely gild the lily.)

10. Pad Thai

You'll only need a half-hour before your guests arrive to make this Thai essential, starring chicken, tofu, peanuts and a four-ingredient sauce for the books.

11. Carne Asada Tacos

Psst: For the tastiest, juiciest meat, let the flank steak soak overnight in a vinegar-based marinade that will tenderize it like a charm.

12. Vegan Avocado Caesar Salad

To offset all the wings, nachos and pizza, of course. This vegan beauty is complete with plant-based dressing, cashew Parmesan and lots of buttery avocado.

13. Japanese Egg Sandwich

It turns out you don't need to travel to the famous Konbi on Sunset Boulevard to get your tamago sando fix. Bonus points for using homemade milk bread.

14. Carrot Pigs In A Blanket

Mini breaded hot dogs? Come on—this is veggie-loving Los Angeles. We’re putting carrots in blankets (and dipping them in green goddess dressing) instead.

15. Vegan Chili ‘cheese’ Dip

Because you know there’s gonna be at least one plant-based football fan at your party. This decadent dip boasts smoky vegan chorizo and potatoes.

16. Mexican Street Corn Dip

L.A. has legendary food trucks and Mexican eats all over the city, and one not to be missed is the zesty, creamy elote. We turned those flavors into a dip, so it's a little faster to prepare for your Super Bowl crowd.

17. Greek Lemon Chicken Skewers With Tzatziki Sauce

Bring this street cart classic straight to your couch. Bust out your grill pan for drool-worthy char marks.

18. Avocado Deviled Eggs

Easy to make, even easier to eat. (Seriously—you'll only need eight ingredients and 30 minutes to pull them off.)

19. Easy Fortune Cookies

Did you know the fortune cookie was invented in San Francisco back in 1914? Make this four-ingredient cheater's version and fill them with fun, football-themed predictions for the big game.

20. Biscuit Doughnuts

If there’s any snack that screams L.A., it’s the humble doughnut. (Best of all, these guys are made with biscuit dough, so they’re 100 times easier to make.)
