    We asked the BuzzFeed Community for their favorite food to eat while they watch the Super Bowl. Here's what they nominated, plus a few new ideas.

    1. Loaded Layered Taco Bean and Cheese Dip

    "LAYER DIP!" — lovegoodbyes

    2. Easy Football Brownies From a Mix

    "Football-shaped brownies with white icing for the lines. They were so good!" —chelfordgirl

    Use whatever brownie recipe you like best for these! Get a full tutorial on North Dakota Mom. And if you don't want to waste those cut-out edges, try making these Salted Caramel Brownie Bites with the rest.

    3. Buffalo Chicken Dip

    "Plain and simple." — Samantha C. Sullivan, Facebook

    "It’s an easier, tastier way to get your Super Bowl chicken wing fix." — sweetpotatochad

    Get a classic version of the recipe at Words of Delicious.

    4. 3-Ingredient Crockpot Meatballs

    "Usually they’re made with grape jelly and barbecue sauce. We use strawberry cranberry jelly from our local orchard, but I tried it with BBQ, apple butter and cranberry sauce for thanksgiving and it was awesome." —rachelsporyh

    You can find a classic starter version of this recipe at Wishes 'n' Dishes, and decide from there if you want to swap in different jellies and sauces.

    5. Classic Spinach-Artichoke Dip

    —Ali Engle, Facebook.

    The recipe on Slow Cooker Gourmet makes prep easy, and uses fresh instead of frozen spinach.

    PSA: Spinach Artichoke Dip looks even better served in a bread bowl.

    You can use any Spinach Artichoke Dip recipe you want for this technique, just pour it in the bowl and bake it a little more after you've made it.

    Get the how-to and a stovetop dip recipe at Margaritas on the Rocks.

    6. Cowboy Caviar Salsa

    You can eat it as a salad, a salsa, a topping...

    Get the recipe on Culinary Hill.

    7. Oreo Puppy Chow (AKA Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies)

    If the Super Bowl isn't a good reason to constantly eat dessert all day long, I don't know what is.

    Get the simple recipe and directions at The Recipe Critic.

    8. New Orleans Shrimp, Chicken, and Sausage Gumbo

    "We always try to have food at our parties themed around the teams playing. For Super Bowl XLIV, we made gumbo for the New Orleans Saints. The recipe we found was so good that we’ve had it every year since!" —thatamandagirl

    Get the recipe at Tastes Better from Scratch, or a slow cooker (as in...less authentic, less time, still tasty) version here.

    9. Oven-Baked Pickle Chips with Creamy Chipotle Sauce

    Creamy, crunchy, carb-y, and tart: what more could you want from a snack? If you want a sauce shortcut, try dipping them in Ranch, instead.

    Get the recipe at Melanie Makes.

    10. Gooey Baked Brie with Jam and Berries

    This is a quick option that lets you pick up ingredients on the way to a party and bake on-site, assuming the host has an oven you can use.

    Get the recipe from Tasty.

    11. Slow Cooker Teriyaki Meatballs

    "Teriyaki meatballs! They stay warm in the crockpot and are soooo good!" —leahmeganw

    You could definitely substitute store-bought meatballs (for the turkey meatballs) and / or store-bought teriyaki sauce (for the homemade mixture) in this version from Recipe Runner to save prep time.

    12. Hawaiian Roll Ham and Cheese Sliders for a Crowd

    Simplify it by skipping the finishing topping of poppy seeds and onion, and instead simply spread mustard and other flavors on the bread, as usual.

    Get the recipe at Averie Cooks.

    13. Maple Caramel Bacon Crack

    👀 It's bacon. It's candy. It also has crescent rolls in it? And you can make it in less than an hour.

    Get the recipe at The Domestic Rebel.

    14. 3-Ingredient Slow Cooker BBQ Wings

    The slow cooker does most of the work, but you pop them in the oven right at the end to caramelize the sauce.

    Get the recipe on Intelligent Domestications.

    15. Cake Batter Cool Whip Dip with Rainbow Sprinkles

    Pick up sprinkles in your team colors for extra festivity! This is a great option if you're going to be fending off bored kids.

    Get the recipe at Budget Savvy Diva.

    16. Buffalo Chicken Pull-Apart Bread

    The recipe uses a rotisserie chicken and a store-bought pie crust, so it comes together fast.

    17. Seven-Layer Dip Cups

    They're easy to grab, easy(ish) to eat, and crazy easy to serve.
