Ok, I admit it. I’m not a big fan of football. Anyone else?
I grew up in a sports-loving home, and I will gladly watch baseball, hockey, or basketball. But football is a different story. Mostly because I have never really understood all of the rules and terms.
What is a down, anyways? Off sides? Forget about it. I know what a field goal and touchdown are and that’s about it.
But, like most people, I do enjoy the Super Bowl for the commercials and the halftime show.
And of course, the best part of all is the food that comes with it! Ooh, there’s a break in the commercials. Let me go refill my plate with chips and dip.
Instant Pot Party Foods
Sometimes preparing a lot of party food for a crowd can be a lot of work when you add it all up. Appetizers, dips, something salty, something sweet, etc. etc.
One way to simplify party food prep is by using your Instant Pot! There are so many tasty options of party foods that can be made in the pressure cooker.
Whether your oven is already in use for other food or you just want to save some time, I’ve rounded up some great ideas for Instant Pot party foods.

They’re perfect for your Super Bowl or New Year’s Eve party, or really any get-together! Just click on any of the links to head to the recipe.
Recommended Equipment for Instant Pot Party Foods:
- Instant Pot (I have the DUO60 model, which I love) or another electric pressure cooker
- Trivet – some of the recipes require the use of a trivet. If your model did not come with a trivet, you can get one here.
- Bundt pan, cheesecake pan, and glass custard cups – While used for desserts on this list, these versatile accessories can also be used for making many other foods in the Instant Pot using the “pot in pot” method.
Instant Pot Chili Recipes
When talking about game day foods that can be made in the Instant Pot, there’s no way I can leave chili off the list! Chili is one of my favorite foods to serve a crowd. It’s a pretty inexpensive meal and almost everyone loves chili.
You can serve it with various toppings, add some corn chips or cornbread, and you’re good to go!
There are several variations of this quintessential game-day food, so there’s something for everyone!
Instant Pot Dips
Who doesn’t love gooey spinach dip with a bag of tortilla chips? And spinach makes it healthy, right?
This is basically bacon chicken ranch dip, and it looks heavenly! Perfect for some tortilla chips!
This dip is perfect with some crusty bread or bagel chips!
Creamy, cheesy goodness to go along with your tortilla chips!
I love good hummus with veggies, pita wedges, or pita chips. And it’s a healthier alternative for people who are still sticking to their New Year’s Resolutions. 🙂
Everyone loves pizza! I think this would be delicious with some breadsticks or those little Hawaiian rolls for dipping.

This pretty red cake brings the festivity for February and provides a little sweetness to end the game with–it’s the “icing on the cake!”
