Another year, another Super Bowl Smackdown. This year's Food section faceoff pits Bonnie Benwick against Tim Carman in a battle for the best salsa recipe. Yes, you can do better than the store-bought, jarred variety.

To further expand your horizon, we suggest you have a look at these other great party dips from our Recipe Finder for Sunday’s big game:
