Superbowl Sunday is almost upon us...which means it's time to prep for your Superbowl party! There's nothing like watching the big game with tons of family and friends. There's also nothing like the Superbowl treats found at every game-day party...and let's face it, they aren't the healthiest. Luckily there are tons of alternative appetizers to make to satisfy those with a healthy lifestyle. These recipes take some of our favorite game-day treats and make them healthier (and in our opinion, tastier!). We promise your guests won't miss their usual football foods. They may even ask you for the recipes.
1. Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Skins
Swap regular potato skins for this sweet potato version. Bold chipotle peppers add a nice spice and you guessed it, that's iron-rich spinach hiding out under the melted white cheddar.

2. Lighter Jalapeno Poppers
Hollowed out jalapeno's are filled with whipped low-fat cream cheese and seasoned with spicy paprika. Panko breadcrumbs add a nice crispy top without all the fat of fried batter.

You wouldn't know this isn't avocado based guacamole by the look! Healthy broccoli is mixed with your choice of creamy base (cashew cream or goat cheese to name a couple of options) and flavored with fresh jalapeno.
