The thing about hosting a Super Bowl party is that any interest in football is entirely optional. Everyone knows that these holidays are mostly about food. (At least, that’s what I tell myself.) As with any party, accommodation is much easier if you choose a few recipes that can be made in advance. Luckily, there’s no shortage of easy, delicious slow-cooking Super Bowl recipes.
Hearty football snacks are excellent slow cooker candidates overall. Shredded pork stew or beef sliders are best made in the slow cooker. Cheese sauces are easy to put together in the slow cooker, and it’s a great way to keep them warm until overtime. And, there are plenty of less obvious Super Bowl slow-cooking recipes that can add variety to your game-day propagation: homemade mix of Chex, spicy dumplings, and tasty chili, just to name a few.
Oh, and if you don’t already have a slow cooker, it’s not too late to buy one on Amazon with Prime Shipping, so you’ll get it before the game! Whether you’re throwing a party, heading to a meal, or just need something to snack on while watching the game on your couch, these 29 Super Bowl slow cooker recipes range from snacks to meal-worthy meals. Even if you don’t care less about sports, these snacks will help you get through the game.

3. Slow Cook Chili
This is the basic chili recipe to finish all the basic chili recipes, and it is gluten-free! The dried herbs in this recipe give the resulting chili a flavor that warms you from the inside. I like to cover my bowl with sour cream and avocado to give it a refreshing touch, but the best thing about chili is that it is fully customizable.

Say hello to a healthier alternative to your usual buffalo chicken dish. Lettuce replaces the need for bread or rice and makes them portable to eat on your walk to and from the kitchen to take seconds.

6. South Philadelphia-style Italian Shredded Pork
This game with the classic shredded pork sandwich is a great way to stay out of the kitchen during the big game. The bone-in pig shoulder is cooked 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 trading breaks.
7. White Chicken Chili
Chili is the cold weather essentials you should have on hand, especially Super Bowl Sunday. This version of Fit Forty Forever is made with chicken breast is a little lighter than its usual selection. Plus, it’s a great alternative to turkey or beef chili.
