20 Easy appetizer recipes for a slow cooker via

With the Super Bowl right around the corner I think party appetizers are on most people’s minds. Whether you are just looking forward to the food or trying to come up with some recipe ideas.

The food is definitely my favorite thing about the Super Bowl. Although, I love eating the food, I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen. This is where my slow cooker comes to the rescue with these 20 easy appetizer recipes. All I have to do is mix a few ingredients, turn it on and I can go back to enjoying time with family and friends.

I own 4 different sized of slow cookers. Crazy, right?! But I use every single one! I have a 6 quart Hamilton Beach that is perfect for larger batches, a smaller 4 quart oval Crock Pot (that you can get with your favorite NFL team on it!), a really old 1 quart Crock Pot they don’t make anymore, and a 16 ounce Little Dipper that is perfect for hot dips.  Needless to say, we have them all going during the Super Bowl!



Saucy Meatballs are always a hit when entertaining.

These are easy to make and Buffalo Chicken Sliders are way less messy than buffalo wings.

This Jalapeno Popper Dip is bursting with flavor and basically all you have to do is dump it in the crock pot and go.


Asian glazed wings are a flavorful twist on classic wings.

Spinach Artichoke Dip is always a favorite, and since it is a crock pot version you know it will be so easy.

This Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Dip recipe makes quite a bit of food, and is perfect if you are expecting a big crowd.


Buffalo Chicken Dip is one of my favorite appetizers. I usually don’t like buffalo things, but someone made this dip for me while I was pregnant and well.. I ate a lot!

Regular meatballs just get that much better with this Chicken Teriyaki Meatballs recipe.


This 7- Layer Bean Dip would be perfect how it is or can easily be modified to fit your preference.

Let the guest create the perfect appetizer with this Super Bowl Nacho Bar.

I’m pretty sure Buffalo Wings are a must for most parties and it’s nice to have a, less fuss, slow cooker option.


You will probably want to double this recipe for Apple Kielbasa Bites. I can see them going very quickly.

It in no way sounds simple, but this Crab Dip truly is as simple as it is delicious.

I love it when you can make a favorite work for the slow cooker, like this Chex Mix Recipe.


Kids and adults will all love this Salsa Verde Corn Dip, and all you will have to do is toss the ingredients in your slow cooker and stir.

This sweet and spicy Cranberry Chipotle BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders is a fun appetizer for any time of the year.

Quick and tasty is the perfect combination in this Spicy Sausage and Beer Cheese Dip.


Who knew making homemade Salsa could be this easy!

This Philly Cheese Steak Dip is the ultimate football appetizer. I know the guys will love it.

These Bacon- Wrapped Lil’ Smokies are an absolutely delicious and mouth-watering appetizer. Everything is better with bacon, right?
