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
