A Chili Cook Off for #SundaySupper

Daddy's Favorite Chili (1)Happy Sunday everyone!! Today is a pretty special Sunday……..why you ask? Well have you ever been to a Chili Cook Off? Have you ever took part in one? Well I have to be honest and say I haven’t. I’ve always wanted to but honestly every time I make Chili, I make it differently, I can’t seem to make it the same…….until one day when I hosted a Cookie Swap for all of my Momma friends and I made this Chili for the guys. My husband told me that it was by far the best Chili he had ever had…….so I went on a mission to duplicate that very recipe I made that day. Thank goodness I take pictures of almost everything I attempt to make and that I remembered everything that went into this dish. Obviously you can see why I came up with Daddy’s Favorite Chili for my title! So this is your chance to attend a Chili Cook Off! You don’t even have to leave your home. You get to browse through a bunch of mouth watering, heart warming, and soul satisfying Chili’s right here today!

2014_FW_attendee150x150Heather from girlichef is The new Sunday Supper Movement Magazine Editor and she is hosting this fabulous event over on the Sunday Supper Movement’s website! I know what your thinking, how can I vote if I can’t taste these amazing dishes? Well simple. Your a foodie right? Well if you didn’t love food like I do you probably wouldn’t be reading my blog right now so here is how you do it folks. Read the recipe, look at the picture and close your eyes, let that recipe get into your head and before you know it, you’ll be tasting it. What’s the point of a contest if we can’t win something you ask? Well we do win something. The blog/recipe with the most votes will be winning a FREE pass to this years Food and Wine Conference in the sunny place of Orlando, Florida! The voting is open until Thursday Feb 27th so you have plenty of time! What is this conference all about you ask? Well imagine a bunch of food bloggers, a bunch of wine bloggers, a handful of cooking professionals, food authors and all the knowledge to create and run a successful blog in one building for one whole weekend….. there you have it!  I really wanted to go last year but couldn’t since I was days away from having my son. My husband promised me we’d make a family vacation out of it this year so I could attend and finally meet these fabulous people face to face since they feel like family at this point. However, money is tight, things come up and expenses just never end. I’m still holding onto hope that I’ll be able to attend, it’s not out of the question yet, this win would really help get me there! So come on over and VOTE!! Let me proudly post this badge all over my site!

Some people may think it’s cheating because I use a Slow Cooker and spice packet but I put just as much love into this dish, who doesn’t love simple?! I made it this past weekend for my family and friends for our first annual ice skating party on the lake we live on and one of my friends said “This is the perfect Chili……. just the right amounts of spice!”

Recipe: Momma’s Meals
Serves: A Crowd

Daddy's Favorite Chili SS (9)

What you’ll need:

2 cans of chili beans (I use Bush’s)
2 cans of great northern beans
1 lb. of ground pork
1 lb. of ground sirloin
2 small cans of green chili’s
1 small onion, diced
Drizzle of olive oil
1 packet of Chili seasoning (like McCormick’s)
Red pepper flakes
Shredded cheddar cheese for topping

What to do:

Add the diced onion to a saute pan and add a drizzle of olive oil to them. Saute on low-medium for five minutes. Add in the ground pork and ground sirloin breaking up the meat. Add half of the seasoning packet to the meat mixture and saute until meat is cooked through.

Meanwhile line a slow cooker with a liner (this is one of those dishes it’s worth pulling out a liner for!) Add the beans, green chili’s and the remaining seasoning packet. Give the red pepper a few shakes (this is where you can spice it up to your liking) .

Once the meat mixture is cooked through, add it to the slow cooker and mix to combine. Feel free to add more red pepper here. Keep it on low for a few hours and serve with shredded cheddar cheese and the canister of red pepper flakes. I kept mine on warm all day and everyone helped themselves.

Grab your pens and pencils, cup of coffee and start making your grocery list now to make one of these fabulous dishes. For mine, it’s simple, it’s hearty yet light at the same time.

  1. Yum! That looks wonderful! So many good recipes there! Wish I knew about it sooner and could have submitted my shepherds pie style slow cooker chili. It is the perfect fuel for my training as an elite athlete! Booo! But at least I have more chilli ideas now 🙂

  2. I have so many recipes like that where I make it once and it just never is the same again. I blame it on my bad habit of not fully following recipes and then forgetting to write down the little changes I made. 🙂 Well done on perfecting a previous chili attempt.

  3. I do the same thing all the time Laura! I keep a marker board in my kitchen and I try to make notes of the small changes as I am cooking them. I think my key here was using the ground sirloin and the ground pork!! 🙂 Happy Chili making!

  4. The best compliment ever is when a loved one says you make the best – whether it be chili or anything. You are already a winner to your family with this recipe.

  5. The only way mom made chili growing up was ala McCormick’s Chili spice pack – no matter how many versions I taste the one made with that always reminds me of home. Easy is good!
