"Soup"er Bowl Chili

Do you have football fever?  My favorite part of the Super Bowl is the food.  I love snuggling in with a big spread of yummy appetizers, comfort food and a few great friends to cheer on my favorite team.

What better to serve at your Super Bowl party than a hearty, rich chili.  This recipe is amazingly easy but so delicious.  Make it ahead of time to reduce game game stress and of course serve it in these soup-er bowls!

For 49er Chili you need:
10 Servings

2 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons corn oil
2 large sweet onions, chopped
2 pounds lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1-1/4 cups catsup
1 teaspoon dried, crushed red chilies
3 tablespoons chili powder (or more to taste)
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes, with juice
1 28-ounce and 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes, with juice
1 28-ounce can pinto beans, with juice
1 15-ounce can pinto beans, with juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons tomato paste
Suggested garnishes: chopped onion, sour cream, grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, jalapenos.


  • Heat butter and oil in soup pot and saute onions. Add ground beef, cook through, and add garlic, cooking another 3 minutes.
  • Add all remaining ingredients and cook, stirring often, over medium heat for at least an hour so flavors blend.
  • Serve with a variety of toppings.
This also freezes great! Ready to get your game on?  Off to a great week.
