Super Bowl Chili Final 2013
Is everyone preparing their menu for the Superbowl? I have a couple of new recipes that I will be making and posting – unfortunately after the Superbowl. Because of that, I wanted to share this great Chili recipe for a Superbowl party. I make my chili with turkey since it is lighter than ground beef and I make a thicker, sweeter chili. I like to serve it with extra sharp cheddar cheese and honey cornbread. You could also serve it as an appetizer with scoop-able chips. If it is too thick for your taste, just add more liquids for a thinner chili. Typically, I do not care for chili, but this recipe is one I love! You can find my Super Bowl Turkey Chili With Cornbread that I posted previously. I hope you enjoy it and let me know how you are planning for the Superbowl. I am not a football fan but I am interested in two west coast teams playing in New Jersey – a cold, wintery state with an open football stadium. Maybe it will snow making the game interesting!

Many of you know that I have a second blog called: The Testers Edge. This blog is dedicated to testing, career development, leadership, and other tech topics. Recently, I was promoted to Director, Quality Management Programs. In this position I will be continue to oversee the strategic direction and leadership of the Software Testing department. In addition I will oversee and implement a quality management system and participate in company-wide quality initiatives and programs. In my current posting I talk more about how I managed my career to get to this point in my life. Click here for the posting. Also on The Testers Edge are postings on developing your career through formal and informal approaches; developing your leadership skills; and various postings on software testing and professional books I read. So check out The Testers Edge if you are interested in these topics and please share with those who may be interested.

  1. Your chili looks delicious Bernice!! I made a big pot of homemade chili this week and just finished having a bowl. Sat down to look at my email and there was your post! 🙂 Chili and or soup is great on the cold winter days we have been having.

    Did you see my recent post on making Crème Brûlée, one of my favorites!

    Stay warm! It was 4 degrees here this morning, Brrr….

      Michael that is ironic! I just saw your creme brulee recipe – it looks fantastic!! It is bitter cold here. Around -20F with wind chill – just bitter and frigid.

    Always a winner! you asked about my game day menu, I had decided to change to chili. I posted a slow cooker chili and that is what is happening. = with corn bread of course. this recipe sounds good and I think I am going to borrow some of it for mine. I like collaborations!

    1. Bernice says:

      Collaboration is the foundation of cooking. 🙂 Take the best from several recipes to come up with your own! 🙂 I still need to finish my menu but so far I have Buffalo “Wings” meatballs.

      1. kanzensakura says:

        Sounds good!!! I was thinking of the slow cooker chili, cornbread and the teriyaki wings I posted ages ago. Or the karage chicken. Different. chips, hummus, some veggies, and a cocktail punch I make from ginger ale and sparkling while grape juice.

      2. Bernice says:

        That all sounds wonderful!!!

  3. Lauren Lane says:

    I haven’t made homemade chili in awhile and hadn’t even thought of it for the superbowl! I used to make it all the time when I was in college in Boston. Thanks for the recipe and for jogging my memory! My husband will be so excited…it has been freezing here in D.C.

  4. Love the chili recipe, Bernice, its perfectly healthy while being deliciously wholesome! Congratulations on the new role and good luck, what an interesting job:)

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you Peri! The chili is really good and the new job will have some great and rewarding challenges. 🙂

  5. Congratulations on your promotion, your position sounds interesting and the chili delightful!

    1. Bernice says:

      Thanks so much. It definitely opens up new opportunities for me. 🙂

  6. I always seem to have the same thing for the Super Bowl each year: jalapeno nachos and beer!………

    1. Bernice says:

      ha ha ha. Traditions are always good!

  7. Hi Bernice, your Chilli looks so delicious. Although I am a huge fan of what you would call “classic” Chilli, the idea falls apart at my house because there is always something that somebody won’t eat! I do like the idea of using Turkey however and it IS still early in the morning AND my wife is at work …… maybe I’ll just prepare some for myself right now ……

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you! I never cared for chili until I made this recipe and I prefer it with turkey. I hope you had a chance to make a pot of chili for yourself!!

      1. Update: I did make a pot, and I ate the whole thing! I may have to do this on a monthly basis!

      2. Bernice says:

        You know I have not made my turkey chili yet this winter – I better make a pot soon!!
