Game Day Chili

Chili always reminds me of Sunday fall afternoons, watching football and hanging out with friends and family.  Yesterday was the season opener for the Minnesota Vikings and my husband and I had two of our close friends over for the game and lunch.  I made this chili and it was delicious!

There are lots of different chili recipes out there but I especially liked this one as it has everything: beans, tomatoes, beef, and two special ingredients, beer and cocoa powder!

Ingredients:

3 lb ground beef (I used 85/15)

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 Cup chopped onion

8 oz Hunt’s tomato sauce

10 oz can of kidney beans

10 oz can of pinto beans

20 oz can of diced tomatoes

1 Cup water

1 can beer 14oz

3 Tbsp chili powder

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp unsweeted cocoa powder

1/2 tsp hot sauce

Brown ground beef in a large sauce pot, drain fat.  Add chopped onions and garlic, cook until onions are tender.  Add remaining ingredients and stir.  Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce to a simmer and cook for 2 hours.  Serve your favorite toppings.

Makes 20 servings
