Best Superbowl Chili Recipe

What makes the best Superbowl chili? One of the favorite appetizers for this occasion is good hot chili, but what makes chili con carne? First you want a chili that is spicy but not too hot and you want something quick and easy to make. This featured chili recipe has got all the ingredients necessary to be the best Superbowl chili ever. Give it a try and decide for yourself if it is the best appetizer for Superbowl.

Although chili is usually served with rice or cornbread, as a satisfying meal, swap the bowls for mugs and omit the rice and cornbread, and you have a lovely appetizer-sized portion of chili to enjoy. Serve some tortilla chips on the side, or some individual cornbread muffins perhaps. This recipe is highly tweak-able. You can adjust the spice factor to make it as hot or as mild as you wish. Serve extra hot sauce on the side in case anyone wants to spice theirs up even more.

Leave out the cumin and/or oregano if you prefer, or even add a pinch of unsweetened cocoa powder to add a rich and exciting flavor. You can swap the chili beans for corn, the ground beef for ground pork, and the diced tomatoes with chilies for regular diced tomatoes. Also, feel free to add minced garlic (when you add the onion) or any other chili ingredients you want to add. This is a wonderful Tex-Mex dish, and if you tweak it to make it suit your palate perfectly, you will be really impressed with the flavor and so glad you made it. The recipe is really easy too. After browning the meat and sautéing the onion, simply add the remaining ingredients and let the mixture simmer for half an hour, after which time it is ready. If you want, swap the large pot for a crockpot and let it cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours. Continue reading

Spicy Crockpot Queso Dip

Whether you want to feed a crowd, make something yummy to munch on during the Superbowl or simply prepare some comfort food, cheese dip is always a winner. This recipe is made with Cheddar Jack cheese, tomatoes, cream, green onions, spices and hot dogs, and everything is blended in the crockpot for a flavorful result. Slow cooking brings out all the flavors and blends everything together nicely.

If you prefer to make a vegetarian version you can omit to hot dogs from the recipe. You can also use reduced fat cream and cheese if you want to cut the fat content a little. Serve the finished dip straight from the crockpot so it stays warm and choose from tortilla chips or scoops to serve. You can even offer corn chips or kettle chips if you prefer, or vegetable sticks like carrot and celery. This dip can be spiced up as much as you wish and some people do like it really hot. Another option is to leave out the pepper sauce and use a milder cheese if you prefer a milder result.

This recipe makes 6 cups of dip which is enough for 10 people but if you are serving this to diehard cheese dip fans you might want to make more of it. If you are in a hurry this can be made on the stovetop but the flavor is slightly better when you use a crockpot, so we recommend you do.
