The Super Bowl is just around the corner and if you haven’t planned your party yet, you need to start with the most important part first: the food. You really think people show up just to watch the game and hope Beyonce takes over the halftime show in bootie shorts? No. Everyone wants a sh*t ton of beer and food. Like enough to gorge themselves on for days after, if you’re nice enough to give them some leftovers.

Start your party off right with the classic seven layer dip. Literally no one is going to want to leave your apart, which could be a good thing (especially if one of your guests happens to be Lindsey Pelas).

Here Are Best Super Bowl 2016 Dip Recipes:

Ingredients:
1 large russet potato
8 ounces thick-cut bacon
8 ounces plain non-fat Greek yogurt
8 ounces reduced-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided
For serving: Kettle Brand Krinkle Cut Salt & Fresh Ground Black Pepper Chips

Instructions:
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with foil, then place an ovenproof baking rack on top. Arrange the bacon in a single layer on the baking rack, then bake until crisp, about 12-15 minutes depending upon the thickness of your bacon. Remove from the baking rack to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then dice into small pieces.
2. Meanwhile, prick the potato all over with a fork, then place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 6-10 minutes or until soft and cooked through. Let cool. 3. Slice the potato in half, then carefully scoop the insides out into a mixing bowl. Discard the skins.
4. With a fork, mash the potato until smooth. Add the Greek yogurt, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Add the cheddar, 2 tablespoons of the chives, and all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon. Stir to combine. Taste and add additional salt or pepper as desired.
5. Transfer to a serving bowl, then sprinkle the remaining bacon and chives over the top. Serve warm or at room temperature with potato chips. (For directions to serve hot, see recipe notes below).
