The countdown is on to the big game. What will you be serving for the Super Bowl? Change it up and make chili. A chili bar is a fun way to let your guest garnish their chili with their favorite yummies. I’m a sucker for a Frito Pie. This regional treat always makes me happy. You can see that I add the toppings. Change the score this year with your own chili bar.
The countdown to Super Bowl has begun! -AF
(the first recipe my mother-in-law shared with me- A few adaptions have occurred but she still loves me!)
1 1/2 lb. hamburger or turkey meat
1 bell pepper
1 white onion
1 large can Ranch Style Beans
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can Rotel (if you like it hot)
1 large can of tomato juice
1 pkg. chili powder (envelope)
1 T chili powder
1 t garlic
Brown meat. Drain any fat. Add package of chili powder and water. Let season set. In large soup pot, soften onions and bell peppers about 4 minutes. Now add everything to soup pot. The last ingredient I add is the tomato juice. You need to make the executive decision of how thick you want your chili. Decisions, decisions. Bring chili to a boil. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. You can also make in a crockpot.
Set the chili bar. We add shredded cheese, onions, sour cream, and hot sauce. Plus we love Frito pies. Load it up!
