Even though I grew up in a major sports city (Boston), I’m really not a sports girl. I’ve just never had much of an interest in watching games, despite my husband’s best efforts to make me a fan. He, on the other hand, loves sports so we always have a baseball or football game on in our home. This year we are hosting a Super Bowl party for our friends, so as you can imagine I am really just in it for the food. And the commercials. Those are good, too!
I am planning my menu for next Sunday, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share some of my favorite Super Bowl recipes with you! In typical LCBA fashion, these recipes are healthier than your average Super Bowl fare, but NOT lacking in taste.
Whoever you’re rooting for during the big game, have fun!

Super Bowl Snacks
The creamiest hummus + the best combination! Serve this dip with veggies or chips.
Charred Corn and Tomato Salsa
No grill needed for this charred corn and tomato salsa recipe. Broil the vegetables in the oven for a delicious charred flavor! This one is a winner, for sure.
The Best Spicy Mango Salsa
This mango salsa is incredibly addicting, so I always make a double batch if I am serving it to a group!
Spiced Popcorn with Pecans
Spice up regular old popcorn with this popcorn and pecans recipe!
Super Bowl Main Courses
Easy Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken
There is nothing plain about this shredded chicken after you add your favorite barbecue or hot sauce. You can use this chicken in nachos, buffalo chicken dip, and more!
Healthy Turkey Chili
Serve this turkey chili over brown rice or with cornbread muffins (see my recipe below) for the ultimate Super Bowl meal!
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Cornbread Honey Muffins
Anyone who has tried these muffins LOVES them. They’re the perfect slightly sweet contrast to spicy chili or barbecue food.
Barbecue Pulled Chicken
This Pulled Chicken is delicious served on a bun or own or with cornbread muffins (see above).
Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Short Ribs
I seriously cannot sing enough praise for this recipe. If you make these short ribs, you may want to double up because they’ll go fast!
Asian Turkey Meatballs with Sesame-Soy Dipping Sauce
You can make mini bite-sized versions of these Asian Turkey Meatballs and serve them with toothpicks for the perfect party appetizer.
Sesame-Glazed Chicken Drumsticks
These drumsticks are a great alternative to chicken wings. You’ll love the Asian sesame glaze!

Excuse me, you are a Yankees fan.
OMG Nate would go crazy for those Asian Turkey Meatballs — I may just have to make them for him this weekend 😉
Yeeeeees!! Try them!! They’re a reader favorite, so I really think he’d love them! XO
These all look amazing and if I were more into the game, I would have made things – ha! Instead my husband just made a HUGE ASS BRISKET – that everyone devoured (except me, hahahaha).
That sounds SO good! And I am really just in it for the food, not the game!
