Super Bowl party food might bring to mind fat-filled snacks such as nachos and Buffalo wings, but we've found some healthier variations of classic game-day appetizers, including baked "fries," vegetable quesadillas and chicken chili. We tried to stick to finger foods so you can eat, drink and cheer for your team at the same time.
