When the New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Feb. 5, most of us here will only be mourning the fact that the Seahawks aren’t on that field. But whether you’re in the game for the ball or the half-time show, snacking is still of utmost importance. And for that, Whole Foods has all the answers. 

Sure, you could pick up all you need from the hot bar at any store—also, have you tried the new self-serve mochi?!—but if you want to actually put a few foods together for your Super Bowl party, here are a few easy recipes for healthful daylong nibbling: 

Black-Eyed Pea Nachos

2 tsp expeller-pressed canola oil
1/2 red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 (16-ounce) bag frozen black-eyed peas, prepared according to package directions (1 1/2 cups)
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
4 ounces (about 5 cups) tortilla chips
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 lime
Sriracha sauce to taste 

Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in peas and salt and cook 1 more minute.

Spread chips over the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish and spoon pea mixture over the top. Sprinkle with cheese and bake just until cheese melts and the nachos are very hot, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro and squeeze lime over the top of the nachos. Squirt sriracha sauce over the top and serve warm.
