The thing about throwing a Super Bowl party is that any interest in football is totally optional. Everyone knows these parties are mostly about the food. (At least, that’s what I tell myself.) As with any party, hosting is much easier if you pick a few recipes that can be made ahead of time. Luckily, there’s no shortage of easy and delicious slow-cooker Super Bowl recipes.

Hearty football snacks are great slow-cooker candidates in general. The braised meat of pulled pork or beef sliders is best done in the slow-cooker. Cheesy dips are easy to throw together in the slow-cooker, and it’s a great way to keep ’em warm well into overtime. And, there are plenty of less-obvious slow-cooker Super Bowl recipes that can add variety to your game day spread: homemade Chex mix, saucy meatballs and tasty chili—just to name a few.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

This “layered” chili literally requires no stirring. Simply place everything on top of each other in the slow cooker and let it be for four hours. The end result is a melt-y mix of cheese, ground beef and sweet onions.

2. Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork

You need a pulled pork dish on your table this Sunday, I don’t make the rules. The homemade sauce in this recipe is full of ingredients like maple syrup, orange juice (and garlic!), for a tangy-meets-sweet flavor that is just to die for.

3. Slow Cooker Chili

This is the basic chili recipe to end all basic chili recipes–and it’s gluten free! The dried herbs in this recipe give the resulting chili a flavor that warms you up from the inside. I like topping my bowl with sour cream and avocado for a refreshing twist, but the great thing about chili is that it’s totally customizable.

5. Drunken Bean Soup with Bacon

Why is this recipe called “drunken bean soup,” you ask? Because the beans are made with a 12 oz. bottle of lager, of course! It doesn’t get any more Super Bowl than beans and beer, so I’ll be adding this to my lineup this year.

6. South Philly Style Italian Shredded Pork

This play on the classic pulled pork sandwich is a great way to stay out of the kitchen during the big game. The bone-in pork shoulder cooks for eight hours (or overnight, if you’re in the mood to plan ahead). Just keep everything warm during the game and have your friends build their own sandwiches during the commercial breaks.

7. White Chicken Chili

Chili is the cold-weather essential that you need to have on hand—especially on Super Bowl Sunday. This version from Fit Forty Forever is made with chicken breast is a bit lighter than your usual selection. Plus it’s a great alternative to turkey or beef chili.
