Game Day’s Food is getting a facelift this year….not only is this super budget friendly, filling for your crowd, but it’s ridiculously easy too!
There’s just something about a bowl of chili while you’re watching the players freeze on the sidelines. (Maybe it’s just me?!) But I love to be warm and cozy while watching the game AND the commercials.
This year, I’m sharing a stellar and super simple recipe that takes one of football’s favorite foods…Buffalo Chicken Wings…and drops it into chili form. Load in the beans (in this case, 15 Bean Soup mix beans) and you’re on your way to tempting taste buds and filling bellies. When it comes to feeding my 5 dudes on Game Day, this is the PERFECT meal!
(Note: I used 1 cup of the hot sauce and it was just perfect for all of us, kids included. If I’d been making this for just adults or those who prefer spicier, I would have added more hot sauce!)
Here’s what you look for on the dried beans aisle at your store…
I went back for seconds on this chili…and ended up feeling pleasantly stuffed and happy! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
