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.

Whether you’re hosting a party, heading to a potluck or just in need of something to snack on while you watch the game on your couch, these 20 slow-cooker Super Bowl recipes range from snack-y to meal-worthy. Even if you couldn’t care less about sports, these snacks will get you through the game.
