Game-day snacks that won’t wreck your diet
Baked Meatballs with Spicy Marinara Dipping Sauce
Meatball subs are a Super Bowl staple, but ditch the roll and serve these meatballs instead. In order to ensure that meatballs stay tender and moist while baking, don’t overwork the ground turkey mixture.

Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers
Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers are a fiery twist on that Super Bowl must-have, Buffalo wings. For the chicken, either poach two chicken breasts or use half of a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Also, if you’re staunchly in the “wings and ranch” group, omit the blue cheese and use 4 ounces of cream cheese mixed with 2 tablespoons of ranch seasoning instead.

Loaded (Lighter) Nachos
To make this meatless, simply omit the turkey and add another can of beans (try black beans to switch it up a bit). If you’re making these for a big crowd, serve the nachos with fixings in separate bowls, so that guests can top their nachos to their liking.
Sriracha-Lime Snack Mix
This snack mix pairs everyone’s favorite hot sauce with a touch of honey and some lime. In order to get them crisp and crunchy, make sure the chickpeas and edamame are complete dry before roasting. Check on the oven frequently to make sure the snack mix doesn’t burn.
Southwest-Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins
These Southwest-stuffed sweet potato skins prove that you don’t need meat to make a great game day recipe. If you can’t find fingerling sweet potatoes, use 4-6 small sweet potatoes. And you could easily make the recipe vegan by skipping the cheese – you won’t miss it.
