Who doesn’t love a good bowl of chili?
It’s warm, hearty, delicious and when it’s packed with veggies (like this one) it just so happens to be really good for you too.
I wanted to get some game day recipes rolling this week since we are only a week and a half aways from the Super Bowl. And maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think one needs to have any interest in football to enjoy a Super Bowl party.
Am I right? Or am I right?
Either way this recipe is a keeper.
Make it for the Super Bowl or make it for dinner on Tuesday night, either way you can’t go wrong.
And be sure to check out the video too… I had to give the veggie haters a piece of my mind in this video and just might have flexed my bicep. Maybe.
You’ll have to watch to find out;).
Anyhow, enough about me, what do you LOVE to eat on Super Bowl Sunday? Any favorite game day snacks? Speak up… I’d love to hear about them!
