  • Not completely light, but can be cheap - baked potato bar - bake the potatoes and have all kind of toppings - chili, cheese, broccoli, ham, onions, etc etc etc.

    Lighter but not as cheap - taco bar - normal taco stuff plus a few extra things.

    And I know you said not soup, but what about chili with a variety of toppings/stir-ins - onions, salsa, corn chips, cheese, sour cream, rice, etc.

  • Tortellini salad
    The baked potato bar is a good idea
