If you're at a Team Delish Super Bowl party (lucky you!), you'll find that we think the food you serve is just as important as the game, right? If not, get on board—get your appetizer and entrée table stocked with all the classics (like cheesy dips, ribs, and Buffalo wings) so you’ll feel like a winner no matter how well your team does. It can be intimidating to cook for a hungry Super Bowl crowd, so you’re going to want to pull out the big guns: your Instant Pot! We’ve got 25 Instant Pot appetizer recipes to help you with all your Super Bowl prep this year. They’re easy and quick, so you can spend more time cheering for your team (and watching all those wild commercials 😉) than on cooking and cleanup.
It’s truly amazing how much the Instant Pot can do. Need Super Bowl snacks? Try prepping chicken wings, street corn queso, hard-boiled eggs, pizza dip, or turkey meatballs in there. Of course, things like toasting buns, broiling cheese, deviling eggs, and slicing toppings and add-ons can’t all happen in your Instant Pot, but it sure does cut down active prep time immensely.
Looking for something more substantial for a big game day crowd? The Instant Pot can also turn out hearty, Super Bowl-friendly dishes, like lasagna, mac & cheese, baked potatoes, chili, and pulled pork. Speaking of pulled pork, one of our absolute things to use our Instant Pot for is to cook a large amount of shredded meat that we can then use to top everything from tacos to sweet potatoes. Check out our Instant Pot shredded beef nachos, our Instant Pot pork carnitas, our Instant Pot spicy chicken tacos, or our Instant Pot Buffalo chicken sliders to see what we mean, then get creative.
Instant Pot Shredded Beef Nachos
Who doesn't love a big tray of nachos? These are particularly good, considering they're loaded with delicious, tender braised beef chuck roast. If your cut of meat is especially big, you can save the leftovers for quick and easy tacos—just add tortillas.
Instant Pot Ribs
Everyone knows that for really good, fall-off-the-bone ribs, you need to cook them low and sloooow. Well, we're throwing that theory out the window! All you need is an Instant Pot and 20 minutes. 😱

Love lasagna? This recipe might take a couple shortcuts, but it's loaded with layers of flavor. We like popping the cooked lasagna under the broiler for a second to get some color, but it's totally optional if you'd rather not turn on your oven.

Instant Pot Hard-Boiled Eggs
Hard boiling eggs should be easy, but it’s a task that a lot of people screw up. Thanks to the Instant Pot, you'll never boil a pot of water for eggs again.

Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteaks
These Philly cheesesteaks come together SO fast. There will be some liquid in the bottom of your Instant Pot after cooking, and that's totally okay! Use tongs to pull out the meat and peppers so that none of the excess liquid makes your sandwiches soggy.
Instant Pot Cheddar Ranch Chicken
You really can't go wrong with ranch, cheddar, and bacon, and this chicken is no exception. We advise piling it high on mini potato rolls, but it'd also be great as a dip, in lettuce wraps, or straight from the Instant Pot; the possibilities are endless!
Instant Pot Thai Turkey Meatballs
These ground turkey meatballs are the perfect light fare to serve alongside heavier (read: cheesier) Super Bowl options like Buffalo chicken dip or nachos supreme. Keep this recipe in your pocket for weeknights too—these meatballs are great over rice or noodles.
