Let’s cut to the chase. What do people want to eat at your Super Bowl party this weekend? Chicken wings, meatballs and dips top the most requested list.

Wait a second – you’re not thinking of loading up in the frozen food aisle, right? And what about giving a nod to the Lunar New Year on Monday?

OK, “healthy” is debatable in some of the links below, but feeding a crowd from scratch doesn’t need to give you heartburn. Replace your tired macaroni salad with cold sesame noodles loaded with your favorite vegetables. Give barbecue a rest and serve blackened rainbow fish tacos with spicy avocado sauce or lemongrass patties with Vietnamese dipping sauce. And if you’re someone else’s guest, impress them by bringing baked tortilla chips that come together in 15 minutes. Maybe you can convince your host to make six foot nachos.

This weekend, skip the bacon cheese ball and keep it colorful and fresh. Your guests may never leave!
