Ready for the big game? So are we. Check out our special Super Bowl recipes that will get you pumped for the Patriots vs. Seahawks...and the Katy Perry halftime show.
We created a recipe for Skinny QUESO (recipe below)! Yes, there is actually cheese in this -- but instead of the queso you buy in a jar with all those unidentifiable ingredients and preservatives, we have a 7-ingredient recipe that will have you dipping your (healthy) chips all game long.
We also slimmed down Nachos (recipe below) for you to enjoy during Super Bowl XLIX. PopChips, lean ground turkey, fresh tomatoes and onions help to cut down the calories and fat in this game-day favorite dish.
