Along with tensions of the game and anticipated laughter from the commercials, one of the most exciting parts of the Super Bowl is the food. Tasty food unites people together, regardless of what team you support. “One of my favorite things about the Super Bowl is spending time with family and the food. I love the wings, dips and pizza,” Mariah Boulch, nursing major,  said.

College students often find it difficult to make affordable dishes to share with everyone.  Here are three snacks that won’t break the bank:
