Super Bowl Chili Final 2013

There is nothing better on Super Bowl Sunday, a fall or winter day than a hearty bowl of chili! I love this recipe as you can have it on the table in about 45-minutes. If you have time you can let it slow cook longer to blend those wonderful flavors! I like to make a large pot since it warms over nicely and you can freeze it for a quick meal after work. When I first started to make chili I used ground beef. Greg asked me one day to make it with ground turkey and I was hesitant since I finally had a recipe that I like. But after making it with ground turkey I would never go back to ground beef. I find that ground turkey is lighter and not heavy like ground beef.

Below is the recipe I typically use – but I do tend to change recipes when I make them. I would be interested in hearing how you make your chili!

Ingredients I Like To Use
Olive Oil
3 lbs Ground Turkey
1 cup Chopped onion
1 cup Diced green pepper
1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
4 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 oz Chili powder (or more to your taste)
2 Tsp Ground Cumin
1 Tbsp Oregano
1 can Dark or Light Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
1 can Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
24-ounces Chili Sauce
1 can Beef stock

Toppings I Use
Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Cornbread – I use a honey cornbread box mix and I make in mini cupcake pan to personalize the meal to each person.

A Few Time-Savings Tips
Save time by purchasing chopped onions, green peppers, and garlic from your supermarket. Once my ground turkey is cooked, I like to drain and rinse with hot water. For my cornbread, I use a honey cornbread box mix and I make in a cupcake pan using cupcake liners or in a mini cupcake pan. Another option is to buy it from a local bakery. I use a sharp cheddar cheese for more flavors; you can purchase this pre-shredded to save time.

How I like to Prepare my Chili
Cover the bottom of a skillet with olive oil and heat. Add ground turkey; cook for about 10-minutes, stirring occasionally.

Cover the bottom of a soup pot with olive oil and heat. Add chopped onions and green peppers. Simmer while ground turkey is cooking.

While the turkey is cooking, rinse and drain your beans.

Add ground turkey once it is cooked to your soup pot and stir. Then add your parsley, garlic, chili powder, Worcestershire, and ground cumin. Make sure to stir well to blend the ingredients with your turkey mixture.

Then add your remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly.

Simmer for about 30-minutes. If you have time let it simmer longer to blend the flavors.

Serve with sharp cheddar cheese and cornbread. Serve with sharp cheddar cheese and cornbread. You can serve the toppings in separate bowls so everyone can prepare their own bowl of chili. I hope you enjoy this recipe! I hope you enjoy this recipe!

    Too thick, needs more tomatoes (whole with juice)

      We prefer a thick chili – Greg does not like a thin chili. But definitely if you like a thinner chili adding a can or two of whole tomatoes with juice would be an option. Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Bernice
