It’s Super Bowl LIV, or 54 for us who don’t know Roman numerals. Whether your team is in the game or not, a DIY Big Game Party can be celebrated with your family and friends without breaking the bank.

Creating Big Game Party Fun Without Breaking The Bank

I love meeting up with my friends for the festivities and they love when I bring some yummy snacks and party decor.  You don’t have to spend a fortune to create the decor and you don’t have to be a chef to create some yummy Super Bowl themed foods.
I was even able to pick up most of my items at the local Walmart through their online grocer pickup service, which makes this party even easier to create. Here are a few of my favorites party treats and ideas.

  1. Brown the hamburger in a large pot.
  2. Add the tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, taco seasoning, ranch seasoning, both cans of beans and a can of water.
  3. Let it simmer for 30 minutes. ​​
  4. While the soup is simmering, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Now, cut the tortillas into smaller circles, about 3 – 4” in diameter so they fit into the cupcake pan. ​
  6. Lightly coat the cupcake pan with non-stick cooking spray or oil and place the cut tortillas into the cupcake pan, pressing them to the sides to make a cup.
  7. Bake them for about 5 minutes.
  8. Once the taco soup is done, spoon it into the tortilla cup, sprinkle the top with shredded cheese and bake for another 10 minutes.

These are a great snack to make ahead of time and re-heat before the game.  Place a dollop of sour cream on the top and enjoy.
