Now that the playoffs are over, it’s official, we’re gearing up for the Big Game! When I’m planning a football get together, I’m always looking for easy recipes that can be prepared ahead of time. That’s when I came up with the idea for one of my favorite classic dishes, but with a game day twist. These Spicy Sloppy Joe Sliders are perfect for eating while watching football especially because they can be prepared ahead of time with a simple kitchen hack! Find out how to incorporate these into your Big Game party.
I don’t know about you, but one of the biggest stressors I have when it comes to planning parties is the timing of getting all the food ready at a similar time. So, when there’s going to be a lot of food, I try my best to have things that require little to no cooking or can be made ahead. When you’re planning your Big Game party, you can plan on making these sliders the morning of the game by throwing everything into your slow cooker and plate them before the game day feast begins.
Sloppy Joes are already a classic meal choice but making these into little sliders makes them perfect for a game day spread where there will be lots of yummy food. One regular sized Sloppy Joe is likely to fill you up quickly, but you can easily get away with a slider or two to go with the rest of your game day spread.
My second favorite part of this recipe is the spicy chili flavor that a can of Ro*TEL brings to the recipe. By adding a can of the Chili Fixin’s Ro*TEL, you get all of the spicy flavor that’s usually in a pot of chili. Adding some fresh sliced jalapeños from the produce section of Walmart gives these Sloppy Joe Sliders the perfect amount of kick.
Since you’ll be spending less time preparing food all day, you can spend more time prepping the food table with fun football decor like these football mason jars! And what’s even better is you can spend your time hanging out with your guests and watching the game. This slow cooker recipe is a one pot recipe too, which means clean up will be so easy- your husband can thank you for that 😉 With this kitchen hack you’ll save time and energy and be able to focus on the Big Game!
If you’re going to someone else’s party, you can totally bring these Sloppy Joe Sliders, too! It’s so easy but packs so much flavor that everyone will love. For more easy game day recipes that combine canned ingredients with fresh produce, visit ConAgra!Print
