Need appetizer ideas for Sunday?

I've never done a food post before, but I thought with Superbowl Sunday coming up, I would give you guys a few of my favorite go-to appetizers.  As you may remember, I am NOT a cook.  I only make a few things (that are very easy).  So if they are easy enough for me, anyone can make them!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I make this at pretty much every party or social gathering we have.  It is always requested and looked forward to. If definitely has a kick, but we can't stop eating it.

3 cans of 10 oz. cooked chicken , drained
2 8 oz. packages of creamed cheese, softened
2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 bottle of Franks Red Hot sauce
1 1/2 cups Ranch dressing

It's so easy! 
Just combine all ingredients in the crock pot for 3 1/2 hours.

I serve with nacho chips.

 My Mom's Meatballs

My mom has been making these meatballs for as long as I can remember. People always request her recipe and talk about her meatballs. It's hilarious. Let me tell you why. It's so easy, it's stupid. She should probably pretend it's some really secret recipe that she concocted.

a package of frozen meatballs
1 bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce
1 jar of grape jelly
Salt and Pepper to taste

Again- it's so easy!
Just combine all ingredients in the crock pot for 2 hours prior to serving.

My Aunt Marty's Pizza Dip

My Aunt introduced me to this recipe years ago and when I make it, people love it!

8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1 jar of your favorite pizza sauce
1 can sliced black olives
1 T minced onion
sliced pepperoni
mozzarella cheese, grated

Spray a pie dish with Pam.
Spread the softened cream cheese evenly in the dish.
Add remaining ingredients in order shown above.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

I serve with those Baked Ritz Chips

What are your go-to appetizers?
