Drool-worthy Dips

You may not think to make a dip with a crockpot, but our Cream Cheese Artichoke Dip will change that way of thinking completely. The different cheeses melt together with the artichokes and create a creamy and flavorful dip for your next tailgate. Or, make it a fiesta with a plate of Creamy Chili Bean Dip - sure to be a crowd pleaser. Use cream cheese as a base to get that delicious and creamy texture. This recipe is so simple because you can use canned chili and canned beans if you are in a pinch for time.

Impressive Entrees

The Tri-tip Tacos are perfect to make for a tailgate party, but be sure to leave yourself enough time as they take 6 hours to fully cook! Let the meat cook in the crockpot while you are preparing for the rest of your party. All you need are some veggies and spices and you are good to go.

Skip the traditional hamburgers and hotdogs, and serve up a savory sandwich instead. Crockpot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches are so simple and, of course, made in a crockpot! All you have to do is cook the chicken and add barbeque sauce, either homemade or store bought. Or if you want to stick to tradition without sacrificing flavor, you can just as easily whip up our tasty Sloppy Joes. Although sloppy joes are well.. sloppy, you can still create these tasty sandwiches for a tailgate party. Sloppy joes can be intimidating, but by using a crockpot you don’t actually have to do much work after prepping the ingredients. Just sit back and relax while the slow cooker makes these delicious sandwiches right before your eyes!
