If you've decided to throw a last minute Super Bowl party so that you don't have to leave your house this weekend, you're a genius and I wish I thought of the same thing sooner. Being a host is a great way to be social, but also to be a hermit at the same time — you're just making people come to you! But now that you've extended the invitations, you're also probably pretty stressed out about the fact that you've got a lot of people to feed and not that many ideas about how to do it. This is exactly why you're going to want to know about some easy Super Bowl Crock-Pot recipes.
Crock-Pots are the best secret weapon any party host can wield. You basically just throw all the ingredients in, set it, and go on with your day. And perhaps the best part about Crock-Pot dishes is that you can easily cook in bulk — because Crock-Pots are huge. So if you've just invited a huge group of people to your house and it's now setting in that you're responsible for feeding them, take a deep breath, and pick out of few of these super simple recipes I've put together. They all involve minimal ingredients — likely things you already have from your last grocery shopping, and don't take long to put together. You got this!
