Whether Your Team Is In the Super Bowl or NOT - Super Bowl Party Passion IS In!

Whether Your Team Is In the Super Bowl or NOT - Super Bowl Party Passion IS In!

 

The reasons we are passionate about the game are many - some love the commercials, some have their hometown team playing the game, a relative playing in the game or we love getting together to share FOOD! This year, my reason is the last one - food!

 

Best Bone Broth Ever!This recipe has won in chili cook-offs so don't poo-poo any of the ingredients until you've tried this altogether! Here are a few things that I will substitute - 

1. Ground Pork for the ground chuck - I like my chili a little porkier than beefy.

2. For the last 10 years or so, I have substituted Beef Bone Broth for the bouillon cubes & water. To me, it's more flavorfor and healthier too. (Just got my Whole Foods delivery! Let the cooking begin!)

3. I really should change this recipe to read Black Beans for ½ of the Kidney Beans - I've done that for years and prefer the texture of the black beans over the kidney beans. 

 

Grandma’s Chili - Tweaked! 

 

2 large onions, chopped

1-2 C fresh peppers (your choice - red, green, yellow, jalapeño, etc.)
2 lbs ground round
2 lbs ground chuck 

1 lb ground sausage

1/3 c chili powder
Best Bone Broth EVER1 T cumin (or more to taste)
1 can tomato paste 

1 can or bottle of beer
1 cup of ‘strong’ coffee
1 28 oz can tomato sauce (or a little more if it's too thick)
1 28 oz can petite diced tomatoes

2 T sugar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T vinegar
4 beef bouillon cubes in 2 cups water

1T oregano
1 tsp paprika

2 can red kidney beans
1 can northern white beans
2 cups SWEET corn, cut off the cobb - (I use about 6 ears)

 

Sauté onions and peppers in a little oil. Add beef and sausage and cook, skim fat. Add tomato paste & seasonings and stir. Add beer & coffee and bring to a low boil. Add all the rest and cook on low.

 

If it's too thick, add a little more tomato sauce and beef broth. It gets better the longer it simmers over a really low flame. Tweak the seasonings. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, chopped scallions and crumbled tortilla chips or Frito chips.
