Super Chili Bowls

I once worked for a large company who had a big office celebration the Friday before the Super Bowl. Everyone wore their favorite NFL jersey and jeans (unheard of with this company’s dress code) and there was a big recipe cook-off. I didn’t enter anything, because all of my Super Bowl recipes were things found on the back of a bag of chips, but it worked out for the best…I got to taste everything instead!

There were lots of dips and salsas and li’l smokies and barbecue flavored crock pot dishes, but the one thing that really stood out for me was the recipe that won 1st prize (and just so happened to belong to the husband of one of the co-workers, a Mr. Mom who was proud to bring his dish to the office): Super Chili Bowls.

The idea was so simple, but so clever! It’s basically chili in a mini-bread bowl – a baked biscuit, cooked over the back side of a cupcake tin and inverted to become a mini bowl, and inside was a large scoop of delicious homemade chili. Genius! I’ve never had a Super Bowl party, but if I did, this is what I would make. Are you having a Super Bowl party this weekend? If so, this is what YOU should make! Here’s the recipe:

Score big this Super Bowl Sunday!

Chili:

– 2 lbs. ground beef
– 1 C diced green bell peppers
– 1 C chopped onions
– 1/8 tsp. minced dried garlic
– 1 tsp. salt
– 1 T chili powder
– 1 T sugar
– 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
– 1 T oregano
– four 14.5 oz. cans stewed tomatoes
– four 15 oz. can ranch style beans
(or use your own favorite chili recipe)

Bread Bowls:
– 2 Pillsbury (7.5 oz.) buttermilk refrig. biscuits

Brown meat; add green peppers and onions; add garlic, salt, sugar, red pepper flakes, chili powder and oregano. Add stewed tomatoes and beans (including juice in can). Cook 10 minutes, then simmer over low heat for 1 hour. Roll or pat each biscuit into a 3.5″-4″ circle. Fit over backs of well-greased muffin pans. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 8-9 minutes or until golden brown. Spoon chili into bread bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese. Makes 12 servings.

I love that these are individual-sized, perfect for ravenous game-day fans who are huddled around the television set cheering on their favorite team…or their favorite commercial. Whatever your plans for this coming Sunday, have fun and eat well!

Go team!
