5 Last Minute New Year’s Eve Instant Pot Recipe Ideas
I don’t know about you but I’m all about appetizers and snack-y foods on New Year’s Eve. Give me all the chips, and all the crackers, and all the dips, and all the charcuterie boards. The only problem with me and New Year’s Eve is that I don’t eat after 9 pm. This is a goal Greg and I have been doing consistently since 2003. It’s the one night a year that I seriously hate my 9 pm eating cut off time. Lol. Here are 5 last minute New Year’s Eve Instant Pot recipe ideas for you! Plus a few Crockpot ideas too. Enjoy and HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pizza Dip–the most amazing pizza dip is generously spooned over garlic bread and popped into your mouth. Make the dip in your Instant Pot, slow cooker or oven.
Slow Cooker Taco Dip–I love this taco dip because it’s one of those recipes where you can pretty much throw everything into the slow cooker and be done. No browning required beforehand. It’s the perfect appetizer or a great game day snack. Kids and adults both love this cheesy taco dip.
Instant Pot Hummus–you can cook dried chickpeas in a pressure cooker and make your own hummus from scratch. This recipe has simple ingredients, like olive oil, garlic and lemon juice, that you probably already have on hand. Hummus is a creamy and healthy dip that is perfect with crackers or raw veggies.
A little ball of seasoned meat and breadcrumbs with a toothpick inserted. What could be better?
Instant Pot 3-Ingredient Meatballs–These meatballs are a perfect appetizer. With only 3 ingredients and the use of your Instant Pot they literally take 3 minutes of hands-on time. They are super flavorful with a little bit of savory and a little bit of sweetness.
Instant Pot Kung Pao Porcupine Meatballs–easy homemade meatballs with rice cooked inside and coated with a zippy chili garlic sauce.
Slow Cooker Homemade Cocktail Meatballs–tender, bite-sized meatballs made at home in your slow cooker. These meatballs are like the ones you buy at the grocery store in the frozen section except you know exactly what’s going in them. Make these meatballs with ground turkey, chicken, beef or pork…you choose!
Slow Cooker Spicy Coconut Meatballs–a slightly spicy creamy coconut sauce that is simmered with flavorful meatballs and then topped with chopped cilantro. This is such an easy recipe but totally tastes like something you’d order at a restaurant.
Nachos are a crowd favorite! Chips with delicious toppings on the top…who can resist?
Instant Pot Greek Nachos—pita chips, topped with seasoned chicken, feta and lots of tzatziki sauce. A fun and healthier twist on nachos. You can also make this in the slow cooker.
