Best Boston Super Bowl Parties: Bite by Bite

You can make cute football shaped foods, and go all out with the decor for an awesome DIY Super Bowl party but when push comes to tackle, there are only two important things for a successful Super Bowl party:  a big tv & some tasty food and drinks.

If you live in the Boston area, you have some amazing choices.  Pick up a pack of fresh salsas, chips and margarita squeeze mix to bring to a party or enjoy your own party by picking up some of these amazing Super Bowl to go feasts.

Show up on football night  with a bag full of homemade salsas (Spicy grilled corn, salsa verde, tomato salsa, and guacamole), a jar of Margarita’s Squeeze mix (made with lemon and lime juice) and some chips ready to warm in the microwave and your host will be doing the touchdown dance.
