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 (pictured at top) and Slow-Cooker Chicken Chili (pictured above) by Food Network Magazine both come to fruition in just about seven no-hassle hours. Simply pile in the ingredients and kick off.

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.
