Get ready to score big with the real MVP of the Super Bowl: the food! Tackle your hunger with these superfood Super Bowl recipes. On the menu, we’ve got mouthwatering cheeseburger meatballs, plant-based tacos, lentil sloppy Joes with scoops and the creamiest Buffalo chicken bell pepper nachos. It’s game time — and flavor is taking the lead.
Introducing a game-changing addition to your Super Bowl spread: the creamiest Buffalo chicken salad served on bell pepper “chips.” Picture this: tender shredded chicken bathed in a rich Greek yogurt (or light sour cream, if you’re not a yogurt fan) and hot sauce concoction, generously heaped onto vibrant bell pepper quarters, then topped with a big-hearted sprinkling of cheese. As they bake, the cheese turns ooey-gooey-melty good, while a final drizzle of hot sauce adds an extra kick most definitely worth more than three points.
While I often use ground turkey for my taco filling, this plant-forward recipe is hearty, delicious and incredibly satisfying. I combine lentils, black beans and walnuts for a meaty texture and a dose of fiber and phytonutrients. Set up a taco station with all the fixings — hard or soft taco shells, crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes, onions, sweet corn, fiery jalapenos, creamy avocado and tangy salsa — for a customizable feast that’ll leave everyone cheering.
Whether you’re cheering for your favorite team or simply enjoying game day festivities, these lentil sloppy Joes are guaranteed to be a hit with everyone. It’s a plant-based twist on a classic, and packed with protein and fiber thanks to the lentils. It’s the perfect addition to your grub-based game plan.
Score a touchdown with these tasty little balls made with seasoned ground sirloin (or ground turkey) and sharp cheddar cheese. They are uniquely delicious and make a fun appetizer or main meal for your Super Bowl bash. (They are always a hit at the Bauer residence.) Skewer them on toothpicks with cheeseburger fixings like lettuce, red onion, pickle chips and tomatoes, or pile three of them on a sub roll for the ultimate hearty sandwich. We like to serve them with ketchup or mustard, or with our special sauce, which is a simple combination of equal parts ketchup and light mayo.
