The Super Bowl is coming up and while I’m not much of a football fan I like the Super Bowl for the eats, commercials, and overall general entertainment. Growing up we always went to a Super Bowl party at my auntie’s house but I was out sledding, playing in the snow, or playing games with all my cousins. We would stop what we were doing to grab food, which I can still remember some of the stars that were served year after year. There was always a chili cheese dip, chips, veggies, a veggie pizza, and my mom’s mint brownies! Then of course other things that changed up but those were always there. Some years we got to stay for the whole game but then there were years we got to stay for the half time show and then head home. I’m not sure who came up with Super Bowl Sunday but really why would you want something like that on a Sunday when people have work and school the next day? Ok so you want to have it on Sunday then start it at noon! Yeah I will never understand it so well I’ll move on. That said there aren’t many people I know that have parties much anymore, and maybe this is because of it.
I started thinking about what we were going to serve for Super Bowl, low key as we stay home and watch the game. We usually do lots of veggies, maybe our favorite Way Better Chips (I LOVE the Sweet Chili and Sriracha ones!), some popcorn (my oldest will for sure want her favorite Quinn Parmesan Rosemary Popcorn, head over to my Instagram to win some), I like buffalo cauliflower bites (just buffalo sauce and cauliflower, no breading), of course something sweet to balance out all the salty. So there are a couple flavors that come to mind with Super Bowl when I asked the family…. chili cheese and buffalo, then nachos, popcorn, chips, veggies, and dip. So how do you put something together covering as many of those as possible but in a quick and healthy way? Loaded Chili Cheese Sweet Potato Chips it is! Plus I get to use my new mandolin, so sounds like a great idea to me. Homemade sweet potato chips made with just sweet potatoes, a little coconut oil spray (I like this to use as little oil as possible but coconut oil also works), homemade chili or canned or frozen for quick and easy, and a quick dairy free vegan cheese sauce. Since the hubby likes meat I also added in some Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles! Now this is the quick and simple version and I didn’t want things to get too messy but you can also add your favorite topped veggies, salsa, sour cream, anything you want to these as well! Everyone can top theirs with whatever they want, so sounds like a win to me, or what is that word they use in football.. Touchdown! Yes I’m doing my little dance over here, my oh this is so good kitchen dance!
Alternatively you might like my Sweet Potato Chili Fries that are made with a homemade quick cold chili.
Oh wait there’s more! Yep going for the extra point on this one…. come back tomorrow and see what I got for dessert, it’s pretty sweet too!

Loaded Chili Cheese Sweet Potato Chips (vegan,gf)
Makes 6-8 servings
8 large sweet potatoes
coconut oil spray
1- 15oz can vegetarian chili or 2c homemade chili (used Whole Foods 365 Vegetarian Chili in photo)
1c vegan meeatless beef crumbles, optional (used Beyond Meat Meatless Beefy Crumbles)*
*If not adding crumbles use an extra cup of chili.
1/2 non dairy milk (used So Delicious Unsweetened Plain Cashew Milk)
2 TBSP vegan butter (used Earth Balance Original Butter Spread)
1c shredded vegan cheese (used Daiya Classic Blend Shreds)
Additional Optional Toppings:
Salsa, chopped veggies, sour cream, guacamole.
Preheat oven to 400F. Clean sweet potatoes and slice sweet potatoes about 1/16″ thick, I used a mandolin to ensure consistent thickness. Spray baking sheets with coconut spray, lay a single layer of sweet potatoes down, spray tops with coconut oil, and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 12 minutes, flip sweet potatoes over and bake an additional 10-12 minutes until they start to brown. While chips are baking heat chili and beef crumbles together. In a saucepan bring butter and milk to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk in cheese, reduce heat to low and continue whisking until cheese has melted and sauce is smooth. Remove sweet potato chips from oven, let cool a couple of minutes, plate, and top with chili and cheese. If making a large batch for a party place sweet potatoes on a wire cooling rack after cooking but serve as soon as all are cooked, if they are made ahead of time they will get chewy and lose their crispness. Enjoy!!
