Once the game is clicked on this Sunday, your chances of stirring a pot come to a screeching halt. You need one-pot dishes that come together — and stay together — throughout your Super Bowl party. That’s why, this week, we’re lining up our favorite chili recipes, ranging from traditional to chicken to white bean. Simmer a pot for the fam or fix it cook-off style. Either way, this Sunday is all about chili.

In the spirit of keeping things easy, consider your slow cooker your most valuable asset. Slow-Cooker Texas Chili and Slow-Cooker Chicken Chili by Food Network Magazine both come to fruition in just about seven no-hassle hours. Simply pile in the ingredients and kick off.

Food Network Magazine’s Chili con Carne (pictured above) is prepared the classic way, while Tyler Florence’s Beef Chili swaps ground beef for tender morsels of cubed beef. For a chili recipe that goes heavy on the beans, Ellie Krieger’s Three Bean and Beef Chili is brimming with black, kidney and pinto.

Not a fan of traditional red chili? Shredded chicken, navy beans and loads of spice coalesce for a heated chili rendition. It may not resemble the chili of your childhood, but Melissa d’Arabian’s White Chili With Quick-Roasted Garlic for Food Network Magazine still hits the same spot.

A good chili can be both hassle-free and meat-free. Robin Miller’s slow-cooked Vegetarian Chili packs four bean varieties, couscous and heat of all kinds. Food Network Magazine’s Spicy Vegetarian Chili gains its kick from chipotle peppers, chili powder and brewed coffee.

Grab a bowl and get into the game — or at least into the commercials.
