My family has a favorite game day meal that keep simple. The focus is on the commercials and half-time, especially during the Super Bowl! Let’s face it, football fan or not we all look forward to the entertainment in between the actual sport.
I start off with simple ingredients that can be found at any grocery store. I also use our left over taco meat as it is already seasoned and spicy. But any ground meat will be great.
I add about 1/4 to 1/2 red onion, depending on personal preference. I also add about a TB of garlic ( I use chopped garlic in the jar) put ingredients in the crock pot or stove top pot. Add the meat (mine is already cooked) saute for about 10 minutes. If you are adding uncooked meat, cook until brown with the ingredients listed above. I then add about 3-4 stalks chopped celery (today I only had carrots and used two). This is for texture and fresh taste. Once cooked, it’s time to add the rest and stir well. I then add about 2-3 cups water with a few splashes of hot sauce (we prefer Tapatio and our family likes to spice things up). Stir well and top will a bay leaf. Bay leaves add a full flavor and provide other health benefits such as antioxidant properties. I also throw in a handful of rice because it’s a hit at home. My Halloween chili has “maggots” in it and the kids always loved it so, it’s a chili staple now. Cook on high for about 2 hours then low until you are ready to dig in. Pairs perfectly with shredded cheese and tortilla chips. ENJOY!
I attached pictures of my ingredients (it’s always more fun with a visual) I would love to hear your favorite at home event and what meal you enjoy serving. The best recipes and creative ideas are best shared to inspire.
Enjoy your week and I am excited to share my paper flowers with you as spring will be approaching the rest of us soon. I feel like we went straight to early summer.
