Monday Night Football is the perfect time to gather with friends and enjoy some snacks while watching the big game. If you’re like many Americans though, it’s also an excuse to chow down on pork rinds, wings, pepperoni pizza and other fatty fare.
Instead of falling into the same routine, start a new, healthier tradition this year! Meatless chili is the perfect football food: it’s hearty, warm, and can be served as a meal or alongside pita chips and veggies at your next gameday gathering. Plus, it’s packed with protein, fiber, and a wide range of other nutrients.
It’s easy to score some healthier snacks this season! Check out our long list of vegetable and bean based chili recipes, or follow our delicious chili board on Pinterest.
