Let me be the first to ask for help with my Super Bowl Menu...

I am planning to have a few friends over (my house can't handle a large crowd, but we owe a couple of couples dinner, and figured this was a great excuse!). I have decided to make it even more fun by theming at least some of the food to the teams. New Orleans is easy, although my husband has nixed the idea of gumbo (he hates Gumbo; says the okra is too slimy...I point out that he loves okra but he insists not in gumbo). That's ok, I can still do red beans and rice (an easy chili substitute) and some grilled Louisiana Sausage. And of course coffee with chicory and maybe a bread pudding desert (one of our guests makes a mean bread pudding, and our dinners tend to be communal affairs...).

But I confess to being totally stumped when it comes to Indianapolis-themed food. Is there even such a thing as an Indianapolis dish? My husband suggested barbque, but that sounds more Kansas City to me....Hounds: ANY ideas?? I suppose since we are all Saints Fans we could just ignore them, but that would be mean....Help! I'm about ready to claim that since Peyton Manning is the son of a New Orleans boy, that he would eat the Red Beans and Rice as well.....

Appetizer suggestions and game/time snacks (we typically serve the meal at half-time) are especially welcome. Of course, we're already planning on having quacamole, just because, well, it isn't a Superbowl without quacamole....
