Since tomorrow is Super Sunday, I thought I’d share our family’s Super Bowl chili recipe. Truth be told, we cook and eat this throughout the year, but it’s also become a tasty Super Bowl tradition…
Here’s the ingredient list for a single batch:
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 cup chopped onions
- 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
- 1 14-16 oz. can diced tomatoes (or break up if whole)
- 1 14-16 oz. can chili beans
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. chili powder
- 1/4 tsp. oregano
Start by growing the meat and onions in a large pan and then put them in the pot. Note that I usually brown the meat, drain the grease, and transfer to the pot before browning the onions.
From there, just add the rest of the ingredients, stir well, heat it up, and then let it simmer for a minimum of 15-20 minutes. If you have the time, I recommend letting it simmer a bit longer (maybe an hour or so) for best results.
If you need more than the recipe above produces, you can simply scale up by doubling or tripling (or more) the ingredients.
Note that you can also replace the ground beef with ground turkey. Once you cook everything up, you can’t really tell the difference, and it’s a good bit healthier.
