Football Sunday Chili

Very early on in our relationship, Mina made it pretty clear to me that football Sunday’s and Superbowl’s were no joke. Although I’m not an avid football watcher, I knew what I was getting myself in to and I accepted it.

Soon after we got married I started experimenting with different chili recipes and I eventually came up with a recipe that we both love.  It’s now become a tradition that once football season starts, so does chili-making season!  What’s better than chili, beer, and football all at the same time?

So here’s my “secret” chili recipe. It’s super quick to throw together, enjoy! 🙂


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 8 oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 16 oz cans chili beans in a spicy chili sauce
  • 1 cup of corn
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground red pepper (* optional, we like ours spicy)
1. Heat olive oil in pan.  Add garlic and onion.  Once golden colored, add ground beef.
2.  Once ground beef is cooked, drain excess fat.  Now add ALL other ingredients.  Bring to boil.
3.  Lower heat and allow to simmer for 2 hours for best flavors.
