Must Have Chili Recipes for the Big Game

With the recent Blizzard of 2015, chili sounds like the perfect snack to serve this coming Superbowl Sunday.  I recently tackled two recipes – Meaty Crockpot Chili and Veggie Qunioa Chili- that were amazing!  Best news – one batch makes plenty for a party.  We literally ate both recipes for 3-4 days.

ChiliSo skip the cold dishes in favor of one of these two easy chili recipes:



2 lbs. ground turkey

1 onion – diced

4 cans tomato sauce

1 can diced Mexican tomatoes

1 can diced tomatoes

2 cans pinto beans – drained + rinsed

2 cans spicy chili beans – drained + rinsed

2 envelopes chili seasoning

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. chili powder

How To: 

Brown the ground turkey  with the diced onion.  Add browned turkey and onion to crockpot with remaining ingredients.  Cook on high for 6-8 hours.  That’s it!


VEGGIE QUINOA CHILI  (adapted from Publix’ Hearty Chili)


1 yellow onion – chopped

1 green bell pepper – chopped

1 can corn

3 cups veggie stock

1 cup quinoa

1 tbsp. canola oil

2 cans  red kidney beans- drained + rinsed

1 can black beans – – drained + rinsed

2 (14.5-oz) cans diced tomatoes

1 (8-oz) can tomato sauce

1 packet low-sodium chili seasoning

How To: 

Boil 2 cups veggie stock, add quinoa, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed.  In a large pot, heat oil on medium-high heat.  Add onion, pepper, corn, and garlic.  Cook until tender.  Reduce heat to low.  Stir in beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, remaining 1 cup of stock, chili seasoning, and cooked quinoa.  Simmer 20 minutes.  Voila!

Bon Apetit, football fans!
