25 Gluten-Free (and More-Free) “Big Game” Recipes

This coming weekend is the “Big Game,” and it’s time to get your menu together! While we’re not typically huge SuperBowl watchers, (that is, until the Cowboys start playing some decent football…) I’m all for some party fare. Of course, the typical spread includes lots of gluten and dairy, and therefore is off-limits to someone like me. But with some creativity, a completely gluten-free (and more-free) party can be had! Just check out these allergen-friendly recipes for party dishes that will be good for any of your guests!

    That Chipotle Butternut Dip looks fabulous, Alta, and I love the sound of just about everything else, too. :-) Thanks so much for linking to my Pizza Dip! I had to chuckle when I saw it, because I’m getting ready to share a post with that in it as well. 😉 I plan to take it to my sister and BIL’s big party on Sunday!

    Love the sound of the dips and of course the sweets! I had no idea that dessert was part of Superbowl munchies. . . .can you tell I’ve never watched a single Super Bowl? 😉 Thanks for linking up my guacamole and cheese ball recipes!

    Another super easy and allergy friendly dip is just 1 mashed avocado mixed with your favorite small jar of Pace Picante Sauce. Everyone always devours it so you might want to make a double batch!
