Buffalo chicken dip has the flavor of buffalo wings without the mess.

Super Bowl party dishes should keep you out of the kitchen as much as possible so you can mingle with your guests and spend your evening cheering in front of the TV instead of worrying about refilling plates.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Packers vs. Steelers chili: Get opposing flavors to work together by spicing up your chili with Pittsburgh's Heinz chili sauce and Wisconsin cheddar cheese.

Buffalo chicken dip: Like the flavors of spicy wings and blue cheese without the mess? Try this neat dip.

Baked tortilla chips and guacamole: Guacamole and chips are must for any sports watching. Here's a lighter version.

Spinach dip: Another party favorite, this time paired with fried wontons.

Best fudgy brownies: Brownies are sure touchdown at any party, and these will score a spot on your guests' favorite dessert list.
