Spooning With Ginger: Game Day Chili

It’s that time of year again! Park yourself on that couch, grab a beer, and get ready for game day! This Sunday marks the Super Bowl XLIV!  Now I’ll admit, I’m not a big sports fan (ok, that may be an understatement), but any event that promotes hanging out with friends, drinking, and eating awesome food sounds good to me!  Let’s face it, there’s a whole lot more to the Super Bowl than just a great game of football.  It’s the food and drink that can really make or break your Super Bowl experience. So to make your Super Bowl party the talk of the campus, start with a killer game day menu!

Chili is one of those amazing Super Bowl staples that everyone can appreciate.  It is super fast and easy to make, can feed a crowd, the ingredients are all really cheap, and it can be easily eaten in front of the TV.  A lot of chili recipes require a slow cooking process, which allows for the flavours to enhance, but this recipe can be whipped up super-fast, without hindering the flavour. Trust me, this chili can pack a punch!  Put your game face on because this is my Super Bowl of Chili…sorry…I couldn’t resist!

Tip: Freeze or refrigerate any leftovers to have on hand the next time you’re in a rush and looking for a great comfort food!

The Drink:  Since it’s the Super Bowl, go ahead and grab whichever beer is your favourite! But if your looking for a beer to balance out the spiciness of the chili, try a light or amber coloured beer.


1 large onion, diced

about 2 tbsp olive oil

4 stalks of celery, cut into chunks

about 2 pounds of ground beef

1 can of red kidney beans

1 jar of tomato sauce

2 cloves of crushed garlic

about 2 tsp red pepper flakes (add more or less to your liking)

shredded cheddar cheese (optional)


1.  Fry onion in oil at medium heat.  Add garlic and celery.

2.  When the onions and celery are softened, add the ground beef and sautee, stirring occasionally, until cooked.

3.  Add the kidney beans and tomato sauce. Add red pepper flakes and continue cooking until heated through. Serve topped with grated cheddar cheese (optional) and fresh rolls (for dipping).
