Super Bowl Sunday is one of the best days of the year. It's the biggest game of the year, but for many what happens on the field between the Chiefs and the Eagles doesn't matter. Some are just excited to see the  commercials, some are excited to watch Rihanna's halftime show. The only thing everyone is excited for is the food.

The big game usually comes with a big menu. Super Sunday is the second biggest day of the year in terms of calories consumed. Thanksgiving is the top eating day.  From pregame to postgame the average American will eat 2,400 calories! See our favorite things to chow down on below.

At my house, we're serving chili during the day and wings during the game. Plus chips - lots of chips! We've got guac, salsa, and 3 other dips for people to chose from. Various other snacks, sodas, and beers are on the menu too.

We aren't serving the most popular Super Bowl food in America or Minnesota though.

Our favorite Super Bowl snack isn't pictured above.

Tater Tots is the top food for football lovin' friends here in the land of 10,000 lakes.

I was a little surprised to see tots at #1, but they are delicious and versatile. You could serve totcho's, tater tot ka-bobs, tots and queso, or the classic hot dish.
