Simple Superbowl-Worthy Dinner: Chili con Carne
Today I have the pleasure of sharing a guest post from Meredith K! Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe with us!
Hearty, comforting dinners are hard to beat, especially when it’s cold outside. And when it comes to comfort food at this time of year, there’s one dish that stands out among the rest: chili.
With the Super Bowl just days away, people across the country are digging through their cookbooks
for that perfect chili recipe to gobble up during the game. Chili is one of those foods that is with football for years and years—it’s meaty, hot and goes perfectly with other football favorites like cheese dip and chips and salsa.
But easy chili recipes aren’t just perfect for the Super Bowl; they’re also excellent recipes to keep around for busy weeknights throughout the winter—especially for busy families. One pot of chili packs a lot of servings without leaving your sink full of dirty pots and pans since everything comes together in one pot. Chili is also usually made with a tomato base, making it healthier than other cream-packed comforting soups or casseroles that are higher in fat and calories.
And if you don’t know how to make chili, don’t stress out; it couldn’t be simpler. Simply combine
whatever meat (chicken, ground beef and ground turkey are all delicious in chili), beans, tomatoes and spices you have lying around your house and heat until bubbly and hot. Chili is one of the most versatile dinners out there—if you don’t like beans, don’t include them! Not a fan of beef? Use turkey instead,or opt for a vegetarian version. No matter what you throw in your pot, the time-tested combination of protein, tomato sauce and chili spices always tastes delicious.
Try this recipe for easy Chili con Carne the next time you need a quick and hearty meal to feed your family that won’t take up your entire evening. It only requires 20 minutes of real work on your end,and arrives on the table in just half an hour! Chili is also a great recipe to make together as a family,since there’s no chopping or sharp knives involved that could potentially harm little hands. Have kids help pour in beans and tomato sauce, stir up the meat and sprinkle cheese on top of their own personal bowls for an interactive,fun, meal!
