Delicious Snacks for the Superbowl

First of all, I do NOT watch the Superbowl. I used to watch it for commercials, but now those aren’t even worth it half the time. Instead, the women of our group (my mom, sisters and a couple friends) have adopted the day as craft day. We make snacks, the guys watch the game, and we take over the dining room and each share a craft. Every person brings the supplies for the group for the craft they’re going to teach. It’s an awesome day!

So, this year is the first where I can’t chow down on chips and french onion dip, but I’m also far enough along that raw carrots sprinkled with seasoning isn’t going to make me very happy while everyone else is eating fried food. 

Instead of giving in or being miserable, I made some snacks that are a compromise – not healthy enough to eat every day, but not bad enough that I’ll feel guilty afterwards. 

Here they are:

Crab Rangoons (*These are better with full fat cream cheese, but A. I didn’t have any and B. I’m trying to be healthier.)

~50-60 calories each; 3 g protein

1 brick FF cream cheese

1/3-1/2 cup FF sour cream

Imitation crab (small package) chopped into tiny pieces – even minced would work

green onions, chopped

Worcestershire

garlic

cumin

Salt to taste

Wonton wrappers

 

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl (except the wrappers, obviously).

Add a blob of mixture to the middle of the wrapper, fold into whatever shape you’d like (I did triangles). Use a dab of water on your finger to seal.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown @375.

 

 

Southwest Spring Rolls (OMG These are AMAZING!) and Cool Mexi-ranch sauce

~40 calories each; 2+ g protein + sauce

1 can black beans (canned) crushed a little to make a lumpy paste (sounds yummy, huh?)

1/4-1/3 c shredded cheese

1 can tomatoes and chilies

taco seasoning to taste

salt, cumin to taste

green onion chopped

wonton wrappers 

 

Mix the ingredients well. Taste as you go. 

Put a blob in the middle of the wonton wrapper. Roll it up like a burrito (but with or without sealing the ends). Seal with a little water. Bake for 10 minutes @375. 

Warning: the guts WILL come out everywhere. It looked like a huge mess, but once it cooled, we could eat them with our fingers. 

 

Sauce:

~20 calories/serving; 1 gram protein

1/2 c FF sour cream

ranch dressing powder (I made my own one weekend and have been using that ever since, but you could also buy it in packets or in a jar)

taco seasoning

Mix until you like it.
