dipThe most exciting football game of the season, the Super Bowl XLVIII, is right around the corner. Literally, too; the MetLife Stadium is hosting the first cold weather, outdoor stadium Super Bowl game. Super Bowl Sunday is the day to get together with friends to watch the game, halftime show (Bruno Mars!), and the advertisements. This is also the time when most people indulge in all of the delicious foods that come with this occasion. The bad news? All of the festive dishes are incredibly fattening and packed with calories which can set you far back from your recent New Years resolutions. The good news is you can experience all of the tradition, just with a healthier spin on the classics. Whether you are hosting or attending a party, here are some recipe alternatives to the typical dishes. 

 

Quick tip:

If you are attending and not bringing a dish, try snacking on something healthy and filling before getting there. This way your appetite isn't at it's highest and you won't risk over eat. 

 

Southwest Layered Bean Dip

Ingredients (12 servings, ½ cup each)

1 16-ounce can nonfat refried beans, preferably “spicy”

1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed

4 scallions, sliced

1/2 cup prepared salsa

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 cup pickled jalapeño slices, chopped

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack, or Cheddar cheese

1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream

1 1/2 cups chopped romaine lettuce

1 medium tomato, chopped

1 medium avocado, chopped

1/4 cup canned sliced black olives, (optional)

 

Directions

  1. Combine refried beans, black beans, scallions, salsa, cumin, chili powder and jalapeños in a medium bowl. Transfer to a shallow 2-quart microwave-safe dish; sprinkle with cheese.
  2. Microwave on High until the cheese is melted and the beans are hot, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Spread sour cream evenly over the hot bean mixture, then scatter with lettuce, tomato, avocado and olives (if using).

Baked Chicken Wings

Ingredients (serves 6)

3 pounds drumsticks and wings

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon butter

6 sprigs fresh thyme

10 garlic cloves, crushed

3/4 cup hot sauce

 

Blue Cheese Sauce

1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt

1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

Scallions to garnish

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F, and lightly grease an oven-proof pan.
  2. In a large bowl, generously season drumsticks and wings with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. In a sauté pan over low heat, melt butter. Add thyme and garlic and allow to simmer for 3 minutes. Once thyme and garlic become aromatic, add hot sauce and stir.
  4. Pour entire mixture over chicken and toss to coat. Allow wings to marinate in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, combine blue cheese and low-fat Greek yogurt in a small bowl. Mix well, and refrigerate.
  6. Transfer chicken to oven-proof baking dish and place in oven. Bake for 30 minutes; with tongs or a fork, flip and baste wings.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes more, occasionally basting wings while they're in the oven.
  8. Remove pan from oven, and allow wings to slightly cool in pan. Baste with juices, and serve with blue cheese dip!
