Without further ado, here are the top five Super Bowl crockpot recipes.

5. Buffalo Chicken Dip

You can’t have a Super Bowl without something buffalo. But, buffalo wings are average. The newest craze is buffalo wing dip. It’s quick, easy, and a lot easier to eat when you’re in a crowd. The best part is, your friends will leave satisfied.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Ingredients:

3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

4 (12.5 ounce) cans of white chunk chicken

1 bottle of buffalo wing sauce (I use a generic brand, but you can use your favorite brand)

2 (8 ounce) packages shredded cheese (I use Mozzarella or Cheddar)

1 bottle of ranch dressing

Step 1:

Cut your cream cheese into small cubes; his will help with the melting process. Drain your cans of chicken, but leave one can with the liquid. Add the chicken, cream cheese, and buffalo wing sauce. Let the mixture cook for about an hour.

Step 2:

Next, stir in one package of shredded cheese. Let that cook for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top of the dip, and let it cook for another 30 minutes; do not mix. Once the cheese is melted, your dip is ready. For the ultimate buffalo chicken dip experience, drizzle ranch on top before serving.

Serving Suggestions:

This dip is thick and is too heavy for a flimsy chip. Try using pita chips, pretzels, and celery sticks for dipping.

Next: 4. Sweet and spicy is the way to go

Take your chicken wings to the next level with this sweet and spicy recipe. After all, you can’t have a Super Bowl with some form of a chicken wing. Keep in mind, once you make these, you will be obligated to make these wings at any get together you have.

4. Spicy and Sweet Sticky Wings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours

Ingredients:

1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce, divided

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, divided

4 pounds chicken wings

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup tomato paste

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Step 1:

Throw all of your ingredients, minus the chicken and sesame seeds into a blender. Next, you will put the chicken wings with the blended ingredients in the slow cooker on high or medium for about three hours.

Step 2:

Once the chicken has been fully cooked, you will want to remove the wings from the sauce, draining any access marinade or juices. Place the wings on a baking sheet, and sprinkle the sesame seeds on the wings. Broil the wings for a few minutes, to create a deliciously candied exterior.

Serving Suggestions:

I usually serve the wings with ranch for dipping. Instead of your typical carrots and celery, I like to stick with the theme and use steamed edamame.

Next: 3. The bunless burger bar

Whether your making burgers or sliders, cheeseburgers have become a staple of any tailgate. However, there is a lot that goes into making a simple burger, especially if you’re going to grill them.

This dip has all of the same great flavors that bacon cheeseburgers offer, all while cooking in your crockpot. Your guests will be amazed that they aren’t biting into a juicy burger after they try this dip.

3. Bacon Cheeseburger Dip

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Ingredients:

1 pound package of bacon

1 pound ground beef

1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into cubes

1 (8 ounce) package shredded cheese (I use Monterey Jack or Cheddar)

¼ cup chopped pickles

1 head of lettuce

Step 1:

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium to high heat. Be sure to turn the bacon halfway through. Once both sides are browned and crisp, transfer the bacon to a paper towel for the excess grease to drip off.

Step 2:

In the same skillet, cook the ground beef until it’s lightly browned; this will take about five minutes. Next drain your beef in a colander to remove any extra fat, oil or liquid. Add the beef back to the pan and turn your stove to low. Add tomatoes, shredded cheese, and cream cheese into your meat mixture. Cook until cheese softens; don’t allow cheese to fully melt.

Step 3:

Transfer the beef into your crockpot. Cook on low for one hour. Mix the dip, and crumble the bacon into the cheese and beef. Cook on low for another hour until the cheese is bubbly. Garnish with pickles before serving.

Serving Suggestions:

You can use slider buns, chips, or veggies. I also like to make a condiment bar to give the full effect of a bacon cheeseburger. I usually have diced onions, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, ketchup, and mustard.

2. Chili Cheese Dog Bites

Everyone has heard of a chili dog; you just top your hot dog with chili and all the fixings. I am bringing you hot dogs in your chili.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours

Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef

2 (15 oz) cans dark kidney beans, drained

1 packet of chili seasoning

2 cups water

2 packages of hot dogs cut into bite-size pieces

Add your beef to a large skillet, and cook until brown. Drain the excess oil and add the beef to your slow cooker. Next, add the tomatoes, beans, tomato sauce, chili seasoning, and water. Let the chili mixture cook for three hours.

Step 2:

After three hours, add the cut up hot dogs. Let the chili cook for another hour. Give the chili a good mix and you are ready to serve.

Serving Suggestions:

Wonton cups are great for this. Just line a muffin tin with wonton wrappers and bake until they are golden brown. You can also make a chili bar; shredded cheese, diced onions, jalapenos, the options are endless. Have chips and veggies for dipping just in case your guests don’t want a chili hot dog cup.

1. Creamy New England Clam Dip

It wouldn’t be a Super Bowl without the New England Patriots. So why not have a themed snack for your guests to enjoy. Although it may not be New England clam chowder, this dip will have you thinking you just ate a warm hearty bowl of soup.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

1 pound package bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/3 cup diced celery

1 pound cream cheese

2 (6.5 ounce) cans chopped clams, drained

2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

4 ounces grated white Cheddar cheese

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning (I use Old Bay, but your favorite brand will work)

1/2 ounce grated white Cheddar cheese,

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Step 1:

In your crockpot, combined all of the ingredients except for the bacon and parsley. Mix the ingredients together and cook for 30 minutes. While the base is cooking, cook your bacon on the stove until it is brown and crispy.

Step 2:

Once the dip has cooked for 30 minutes, and your bacon is crisp and delicious, add it to the crockpot. You have the option to drain the bacon fat or add it; I usually add it for extra flavor. Let the dip cook for another 30 minutes. Before serving, give the dip a good mix and top with parsley.

Serving Suggestions:

This dip tastes best when served with bread. Whether you make or buy crostinis, or cut up a loaf of bread the bread soaks up the dip for a delicious bite. If you want to keep it simple, crackers will also get the job done.
