If you are gearing up to host a Super Bowl party this weekend, surprise your crowd with one of these five game-changing party appetizers, guaranteed to have fans huddled around the buffet table long after the game starts. If your guests don't fill up on the apps, serve them a bowl of warm and savory slow cooker chili, a staple at every Super Bowl party. Keep your crowd hydrated with a selection of party cocktails, and then send your party into overtime with an easy bake-and-take sheet cake.

A crab dip is a traditional appetizer at any game day gathering, and this Creamy Crab Dip with Peppadews will soon find a spot in your lineup of go-to recipes. With a short prep time and just 15 minutes in the oven, this recipe is as quick and easy as it is delicious.

The beloved sandwich is reinvented as a crowd-pleasing party appetizer. It is so good you might want to double it—even if you aren't serving a crowd. If you happen to have leftover dip, try it spooned over a hot baked potato.

Everybody loves a cheeseburger, but save the time at the grill for summer cookouts and instead, try this fun twist on the childhood favorite at your next Super Bowl party. The Special Sauce is also great over chicken, pork, and fish, or as a dip for fried vegetables and pickles.

These quesadillas are a real crowd pleaser. Each quesadilla is packed with a combination of pineapple, cilantro, red onion, shredded smoked pork, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese. As if that wasn't enough flavor, we're also mixing up a pineapple and avocado to serve on top.

Ditch the chips and serve these fun Tater Nachos to your game day fans. A popular convenience product, frozen potato nuggets, serve as a base in this crowd-pleasing, one-pan recipe. Start by cooking the tater tots according to the directions on the package. Add seasoned ground beef, chicken, or even pulled pork to make Tater Nachos even more satisfying and hearty.
