Super Bowl Sunday Chili Recipe
My Super Bowl Sunday Chili Recipe
I hope you all had a great weekend andhopefully had a chance to watch the game last night (for those of you who wanted to). I have always been a big fan of the Super Bowl FOOD! Sure, it's fun to watch the game but I really just want an excuse to have some yummy snacks with people I like spending time with!
While I was teaching Saturday morning one of my lovely clients mentioned she was making a big batch of Chili for Super Bowl Sunday… Well, that was all the encouragement I needed! It had been a while since I made chili and I love that it's full of veggies, healthy protein and fats, and you can make enough for at least 2 or more meals. Of course I had to get in touch with my dad to double check his recipe, knowing that he uses chorizo sausage (Dad, TOTAL genius!) in his chili which takes advantage of the awesome seasoning already found in there and makes the seasoning part of this recipe a total breeze.
You may have seen me whipping this up tonight on my Instagram story, but either way, it turned out great and I am so pleased to share this recipe with you!
Super Bowl Sunday Chili
1 lb ground beef (90% or leaner, grassfed is best)
1 lb chorizo sausage
2 Green Bell Peppers
1 Red Bell Peppers
2 Yellow Onions
2 Zucchini Squash
6 Stalks of Celery
6 Cloves of Garlic
1 16oz can of Whole Peeled Tomatoes
2 16 oz cans of Crushed Tomatoes
1 Tbsp Chili Powder (or add more to taste)
1 Tsp Oregano
1 Tsp Cumin
2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Black Pepper
Divide into 6 servings.
Start browning the beef and chorizo together in a large pot. As the meat browns, chop all of the fresh veggies. Once the meat is brown place it into a bowl, save the oil and liquid from the meat andsauce the veggies until they are all soft and some of the liquid has evaporated. Add the seasonings and toss the meat back into the pot. Stir it alltogether to combine and add the canned tomatoes, hand crushing the whole peeled tomatoes. Make sure to use all the liquid from the tomatoes too! Simmer that bad boy for at least an hour, up to probably 4 hours, oruntil you're ready to eat! This could also all be thrown into a slow cooker for similar results with even less work.
Optional: This could be a great option for a non-training day when you don't need a lot of extra carbohydrates. If you need a little more fat, just add some sour cream, cheese, or avocado to the top!
