Healthy Superbowl Appetizer

A Tasty and Healthy Superbowl Appetizer

Having some friends over to watch the big Superbowl game? When planning a Superbowl party you can have some good appetizers that are healthy and will disappear in a hurry. The Superbowl is a big food night and you can amaze your friends with a healthy dish that will definitely provide the wow factor you want it to offer. Try the featured healthy Superbowl appetizer below and surprise your Family and friends.

This simple yet delicious recipe features chicken wings, which are used in many appetizer recipes. Here we are going for a really full-flavored result, which means marinating the wings in a mixture of lime juice, garlic, salt, chilies, and sugar for an hour, to really infuse them with a flavor that is reminiscent of Mexican cuisine. A couple of hours is the suggested time for marinating but leave them in there overnight if you want a stronger taste.

The chicken wings are then baked in the oven for a reduced fat result, or you could even deep-fry them if you prefer convenience and crunch over the reduced fat effect. It is totally up to you, since this is your recipe. As you would expect, the finished wings are very spicy, which means a contrasting dip, such as ranch dressing or a blue cheese dip, would work beautifully. If you love wings, you will love this spicy take on buffalo wings and find them very flavorful indeed.

Nobody says ‘no thanks’ when you offer chicken wings as an appetizer, especially if they are crispy and flavorful, and there is no denying this is one of the best ways to do wings. The marinade infuses them with a wonderful spicy flavor reminiscent of Mexican cuisine, and then they are baked in the oven until crisp and cooked through. You could deep-fry them if you prefer. These are quite spicy so serve them with a creamy dip like ranch dressing for example, and add some cubes of blue cheese if you want to add a buffalo chicken touch, as well as some celery perhaps. This is spicy, hearty and unforgettably good.
