8 Super Bowl Snacks Under 6 Weight Watchers Points
Glazed Cocktail Meatballs
These mini meatballs are perfect for game day parties. We made them healthier by forgoing sodium-heavy ingredients like the usual ketchup and chili sauce and including whole-grain bulgur in place of breadcrumbs. They're just 4 smart points for 3 meatballs.
If preboiled shrimp and cocktail sauce is a standard starter at your Super Bowl party, try these quick broiled shrimp with a spicy remoulade dipping sauce—a homemade alternative that takes minutes, is much more delicious, and much lower in sodium. Like cocktail sauce, the remoulade gets a pungent kick from prepared horseradish. For a different type of heat, omit the horseradish and try Creole mustard, a stone-ground mustard with a little extra vinegar punch. We leave the tails on the shrimp for easy handling. Keep a small bowl next to the serving plate for discarded shrimp tails. Shrimp with 3 Tbsp. of remoulade is just 2 smart points.
Jalapeño Popper Bean Dip
Love jalapeño poppers or bean dip? We've combined the flavors of both in a recipe that's perfect for game day. The silky texture of pureed pinto beans enhances creaminess, while broiler-charred jalapeños offer earthy, toasty flavor. Canola mayo helps stretch the cream cheese, providing similar richness with no saturated fat. This dip feels luxe, but there are only 3 smart points in a 1/3 cup serving.
Garlic-Herb Shoestring Fries
A spiralizer creates delicate potato curls. Superthin garlic slices get wonderfully crisp in only 10 minutes. Baking at a moderately high temperature cooks the potatoes perfectly—with some crunchy, browned pieces and some more tender strands. The best part? 1/2 cup of these fries will only set you back 4 smart points.
Beet Yogurt Dip
Harness beets' striking color and earthy-sweet flavor in this glorious spread inspired by Jerusalem: A Cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Temimi. For a little extra heat, use up to 1/4 teaspoons za'atar spice blend as a substitute for fresh thyme, but skip ground thyme because it lends a dirt-like taste. 1/4 cup of this dip is just 4 smart points. Serve with zero-point veggies like carrots, peppers, or cucumbers for scooping.
Greek Chicken Nachos
Super Bowl snacks don't get any easier, or more fun, than sheet pan nachos. The pan does double duty: Toast the chips first, then pile high with toppings and return to the oven to melt the cheese and heat everything through. Here the Mexican classic takes a detour to Greece with pita chips, a shredded Greek salad, and crumbled feta. Rotisserie chicken breast makes this meal even easier, though this dish is a great use for any leftover cooked chicken. Bring the whole pan to the table and cut into servings, like you would a square pizza. These are just 6 smart points per serving on the freestyle plan.
Lobster Roll Deviled Eggs
Eggs steam perfectly in the Instant Pot, making this once labor-intensive appetizer a breeze. Classy enough for a dinner party while casual enough for game day, these Lobster Roll Deviled Eggs combine two fun foods into one delicious dish. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly dish, substitute pre-cooked shrimp for the lobster tail. These are 4 smart points for 2 halves.
Grilled Stuffed Jalapeños
The rich and creamy combination of bacon, cream cheese, and cheddar is a nice foil for the muted spice of grilled jalapeño peppers. This recipe is a healthy, fresh alternative to the popular breaded and fried version. When prepping these poppers for a party, you can stuff the peppers, cover, and chill. Then grill just before your guests arrive. These are just 2 smart points for 2 jalapeños on the freestyle program.
