Super Bowl Recipes: 50+ Cheap and Healthy Party Foods

Readers! Coming later today, as requested: a recipe for Lighter Potato Skins!

Two years ago, we posted a piece called Cheap, Healthy Party Food, filled to the brim with inexpensive, Super Bowl-appropriate recipes. Most of them came from thoroughly vetted outside sources like All Recipes and Cooking Light. All appeared delicious.

Since then, between CHG and my weekly Healthy & Delicious column at Serious Eats, we’ve compiled hundreds of our own recipes, many of which are floofin’ perfect for the upcoming game. We made and ate every single one of these, and can recommend them without reservation. Even to your Dad (whom I’m sure totes loves healthy food, especially on Super Bowl Sunday).

If you have suggestions or excellent, apropos recipes from your own blog, leave ‘em in the comment section! Together, we can make this the most delicious Super Bowl since the last time Tom Brady was in it.

(Special note: frugal shoppers! Even if you hate football with the white-hot intensity of a thousand angry suns, this is a great week to stock up. Look for sales on cheese, sour cream, beans, frozen foods, crackers, dip, and more at your supermarket.)

This is so easy, it can barely be considered a recipe, but I make this for EVERY superbowl. Avocados are always on sale superbowl weekend for this very reason!

I know I'll be eating chips, salsa and guacamole -- but beyond that it's still up in the air.

We setting up a nacho bar (queso in the crockpot, bowl of chips, and all the sides you desire). Then teriyaki meat balls, crockpot of chili, and macaroni salad. Other than that, it is potluck and BYO Ice Chest!

Great links by the way. I might try one of those chilis!
