When is the Super Bowl 2016?

When is the Super Bowl 2016?

Find out when and where the Super Bowl is being held this year!

When football season begins, every fan has one hope in mind: that their team is one of the contenders for the Super Bowl. And then there are the folks who look forward to the Super Bowl for the commercials and for the halftime show. There are also those who are more pumped for the Super Bowl foods than for the actual game. For these folk, the Super Bowl’s arrival comes as a shock every year. Suddenly they are scrambling to get their Super Bowl party essentials in order just a week before the big calorie fest game.

To make sure those bandwagon folks are ready to party with the real sports fans, we’ve pulled together a quick information guide on this year’s Super Bowl so you don’t miss a moment of this year’s fun, from the food to the game itself.

WHEN: Sunday, February 7, 2016

WHERE: Levi’s Stadium, California

Go team! Or, you know, go nachos! Whatever you prefer.

Chicken wings of all kinds are a Super Bowl classic

Besides the game itself, the Super Bowl is probably best known for three things: the halftime show, the ads you look forward to and — most importantly — chicken wings. But do you go sweet or spicy? Dry or wet? Baked or fried? Buffalo wings or hot wings?

As Chef Keith Kamikawa's creations indicate, the latter two are different beasts (even if both are made with chicken): His crowd-pleasing buttermilk-brined hot wings are breaded and fried before being basted in a Tabasco and cayenne-based oil, whereas his buffalo wing recipe features butter and an addictive blue cheese dressing.

For anyone not wanting to deep-fry, you can still get crunchy results in the oven or air fryer, though our air fryer chicken wings recipe is more on the sticky-sweet side than the crispy side. And for those looking for a take on takeout, try the Buffalo Wild Wings copycat recipe, which is made easier by calling for Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce.

Best Super Bowl food ideas 2016

The Super Bowl is the perfect opportunity to try your hand at some of these classic snack foods. Skip the store-bought stuff: You’ll win over any crowd with homemade guacamole, chicken wings, potato skins and more.

This Team Guacamole recipe comes together in minutes, and it can be made in advance. A sprinkling of fresh lime juice and some plastic wrap pressed directly onto the surface of the guacamole will keep it happy in the refrigerator for 2 days. Serve with baked flour tortilla chips. For the best-textured guacamole, use some avocados that are ripe and some that are more firm.

KimKim Twice-Fried Wings are crispy, salty, juicy, nutty and a little spicy. In Korea, it’s traditional to eat fried chicken with cubes of pickled daikon radish. The wings go great with any beer, but a nice American pale ale/IPA nicely counterbalances the heat.

Assemble these Black Bean and Chorizo Nachos at the last minute and serve it piping hot, so the cheese is still melty. For best results, create multiple layers of chips and chorizo. Shredded chicken or pork barbecue may be substituted for the chorizo, or opt for a meatless version. Serve with guacamole and a little hot sauce on the side.

The Super Bowl is not a time for subtlety. It’s a time for hard-core calorie ingestion, as though your home has been transformed into a neighborhood pub. This Buffalo Chicken Potatoes recipe combines two classic pub foods — Buffalo chicken wings and loaded potatoes — into a dish worthy of a football fan’s appetite.

17 Super Bowl Recipes For Carolina Panthers' Fans To Devour During The Game

For football fans, Super Bowl 50 is already a big events. But for Cam Newton fans, Super Bowl 50 is a time for celebration. It's a time to practice your dabbing touchdown moves like Cam, invite over your friends, and start cooking some Super Bowl party recipes for Carolina Panthers.

Chances are, you've already dabbled a little bit in celebrating the Panthers this year. They had one hell of a season and lost only one game (to my Atlanta Falcons, I'll thank you) on their road to Super Bowl 50. I know quite a few Panthers fans and to say they are excited about the big game is a total understatement. But while you're prepping that playlist and hanging up all of the blue and white streamers you can find, you need to get your Super Bowl party menu on lockdown.

To properly celebrate the Carolina Panthers, your menu can focus on two things — any and all light blue dishes, and cuisine from the South, i.e. the best region of America. My boyfriend's favorite place in the world is Charlotte and he goes on and on about the food. I may not be from either of the Carolinas, but I can also agree that there's nothing like some good, southern cooking from the two states. And while it pains my Atlanta-bred heart to say this, you can thank North Carolina for bringing you Pepsi, too.

But you don't need to travel to taste the Carolinas. With these 17 Super Bowl recipes, you can eat your way to a victory, regardless of how the Panthers do at the game. Just keep in mind, it might be a little hard to dab like Cam once you're full.
