Everyone and their mother knows that nachos are a Super Bowl necessity, which is why Dr. Praeger’s concocted a drool-worthy plant-based recipe for Super Green Veggie Nugget Nachos. Melt your choice of plant-based cheese onto a serving of chips, and meanwhile, follow the proper instructions to cook up a batch of Super Greens Veggie Nuggets.

5-Minute Chili

Chili is yet another classic Super Bowl staple — usually, it's somewhat labor intensive, but Huel's Hot & Savory Mexican Chili can be made in under five minutes — just add water and follow the instructions on the bag. Each bowl is filled with healthy, protein-rich ingredients quinoa, rice, and lentils, and the flavor definitely doesn't disappoint. We love adding a little hot sauce on top, and maybe some tortilla chips, for a little added crunch.
