We are very excited to host a football watch party and do some homegating with a yummy spread with a Roasted Red Pepper Appetizer.
It’s the countdown to the big game and quite honestly, it’s hard to work thinking about all the fun things we have planned. I am playing hostess for my friends and family, so I wanted to share some cute party tips I plan to be whipping up for the big day!
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Appetizer
Let’s start with the appetizers. I like to make low prep appetizers that look extra special. My first appetizer is starts with Boar’s Head Hummus. They have a ton of hummus flavors to choose from and I picked up Boar’s Head Everything Bagel Hummus and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.
Boar’s Head Hummus
Serving delicious Boar’s Head Hummus not only saves time, but it is a huge crowd pleaser. The Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is a pairing of incredibly creamy, Mediterranean-style hummus and sweet roasted red pepper that is the ideal smooth taste combination. All Boar’s Head Hummus is Non-GMO Project Verified, all-natural, and gluten-free.
The distinctive Boar’s Head recipe is made with Non-GMO project verified ingredients like steamed chickpeas, sea salt & tahini. Unlike other brands, Boar’s Head’s Hummus recipe lists chickpeas as their first ingredient. They actually offers 13 hummus flavors to discover & enjoy.
Nothing Extra Added
- No artificial preservatives, flavors or colors
- No potassium sorbate (an artificial preservative found in some leading Hummus brands)
- No MSG added as a flavor enhancer
Boar’s Head Pro Tip
Hummus flavors with toppings (i.e. Roasted Red Pepper) should have the toppings mixed in before serving, adding even more flavor with every bite!
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Calories
Boar’s Head Roasted Red Peppers Hummus is 70 calories per 2 tablespoons with only 5 grams total fat.
Sliced Peppers Chips
Instead of laying out crackers, I decided to slice up peppers instead for the ultimate scooping. Snacking peppers are a great choice for dipping in hummus because they keep the carbs down are extreme healthy. I just slice them in half and remove any white parts and seed from the center.
How to Keep Sliced Peppers Fresh?
For my pepper appetizer, I sliced more than are pictured and have the rest in a ziplock in my fridge so I can replenish as people eat the peppers throughout the day. For cut peppers, store them in a sealed container or plastic bag with a paper towel to absorb excess moisture. Keep them in your crisper drawer.
How Long Do Cut Peppers Last in the Fridge?
Bell peppers keep well in the refrigerator for 1 or sometimes even 2 weeks when kept in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer. To freeze bell peppers, roast them first, toss with a little olive oil (and garlic, if you like) and keep them in an airtight container.
More Homegating Appetizers Ideas
Here are a few homegating party appetizer ideas that will complement your hummus appetizer. They require a little more prep and cooking, but are worth making at least one of them for your football watch party.
- Bacon & Tomato Guacamole Appetizer
- For low carb and keto dieters, these Buffalo Wing Cauliflower Appetizer are an ideal appetizer.
- These coconut chicken tenders are also perfect to dip into the Boar’s Head Hummus too.
- These Easy Pretzel Bites are a big hit at all of my football watch parties.
On to your homegating refreshment for the big game day! I love fruit infused waters, so I am all about soaking cucumbers, mint, strawberries, raspberries in a drink dispenser for guests to enjoy. To make the infused wasters extra special, serve your drinks in mason jars with festive straws in black and white or your team colors.
If you are looking for an easy cocktail to bring to a dinner party that is low carb, check out White Claw. It has between 2 to zero carbs with 100 to 70 calories per can.
I hope you have a fab Superbowl Party!!
