The Perfect Super Bowl Party Food: Chef Meg's Chili Con Carne

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Families have gone to war over chili recipes! Everyone has an idea about what should go in chili. I love a thick, meaty chili with loads of beans and vegetables. Thankfully my family agrees!

I love this recipe. It's great for a crowd, and t really requires little work on my part. The slow cooker does the work.

You might be tempted to skip the steps of searing the meat and cooking the onions and spices, but don't! They're adding valuable layers of flavor to your chili.

I love to serve this chili on game day alongside my favorite Skinny Fiesta Dip, which is a slimmed-down version of seven-layer taco dip. Yum! (Need more game day recipes? Click here!)

Each hearty, heaping one-cup serving has just 277 calories, less than 4 grams of fat, and a whopping 14 grams of fiber and plenty of lean sirloin for flavor! It's sure to keep you full until the game is over.

Who do you think will win the Super Bowl this year?

Anything Mexican style is a great recipe .... love the stuff! Report
I am impressed-I am always trying to find ways to pack more good stuff in foods we already like and here is carrots in chili!?!?!?!?! Who would have thunk? I add spinach to everything I can and now I can shove carrots in unknown places too? Yeah! Report
I hate the packer's...SO GOOOO STEELER'S!!! Report
GREEN BAY all the way! Report

They beat DA Bears 2 out of 3 this year. They're on an amazing roll right now. I hope to see it end with a Super Bowl victory.

And to think that they "BEAR"-ly made the playoffs! Report
The ice will shock the Steelers. They might not even get to the game. Green Bay by default! Report
I think it will depend on the qb's. If Roger's game face is on he'll be tough to beat. He doesn't lose his focus under pressure and I've seen him make so many plays all season that another qb wouldn't see. Also a SB win would give him the credit he deserves that has been over shadowed by Favre. I wouldn't bet on the game because I subscribe to the "any giving Sunday" theory. Report
