Game Day Chili & A GIVEAWAY!
I don’t even know who is playing in the super bowl. Don’t hate me. It’s not that I won’t be watching, because I will! But I have always loved the super bowl for the commercials and the food. Who is with me?
This year I will be spending Sunday with Chris and our families. Generally there is a lot of game day food (pizza, wings, other cheese filled dips, etc.) but this year I will be making one of my favorite waist friendly favorites while I watch the big game (or the commercials, at least). My friends at Redpack Tomatoes contacted me recently and wanted to know if I would be willing to share my favorite super bowl recipe, so friends…here it is!
Game Day Chili
- 1 Onion, chopped
- 1 1/2 large green bell peppers, seeded and chopped
- 6 cloves of garlic, or two heaping teaspoons of pre-chopped garlic
- 2 Jalapenos
- 1 lb. lean ground turkey
- 1 28oz. can crushed Redpack Tomatoes
- 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tsp. liquid smoke (flavoring sauce)
- 3/4 cup beer (your preference)
- Hot sauce (to taste)
- Desired toppings (cheese, duh)
- 2 tablespoons Chili Powder
- 1 tablespoon Paprika
- 1 tablespoon ground Cumin
- 2 tsp Oregano
- 2 tsp Red Pepper Powder
- 2 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- 1 small handful of semi sweet chocolate chips
How to do it:
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Chop onion, green pepper, jalapeno, and garlic then add to saucepan. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes. After the vegetables have cooked down a bit (about 10 minutes) add your turkey meat and combine with vegetables (I have not had any problems cooking the meat this way, you can also cook it first in a separate skillet if you prefer).
Season with chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, red pepper powder, salt, black pepper, and the secret ingredient: chocolate. Stir in beer, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, can of Redpack tomatoes. Partially cover and simmer for about an hour.
Stir every 10-20 minutes
Add hot sauce to taste and continue cooking for 5 – 10 minutes longer.
Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with desired toppings (cheese, sour cream, crackers).
This can be left bubbling on the stove on low for quite a while, just make sure you stir it every once and a while, or the bottom of the pan may burn!
