I worked on this recipe for 3 years. This is why I call it.. THE BEST CHILI EVA or for the purposes of this post, Super Bowl Chili.
It has a real mole flare with the coffee and cocoa powder and just a touch of cinnamon. I firmly believe it will spoil you for all other chili forever. Do come back and let me know if I’m right, ok?
This works fab as a meal, but it is my favourite to put out with nacho chips at parties, like, the big game party happening this Sunday. Serve it dip style with fresh grated cheese on top.
While it’s ideal for the Super Bowl, it also works well with late night re-runs on HGTV. It’s versatile that way. I’ll let you decide the when and where.
Super Bowl Chili
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 lb ground pork
- 3 strips of bacon
- 1 lg can kidney beans
- 1 lg can bean medley
- 1 lg can diced tomatoes
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 can corn beef hash
- 1/2 medium-sized onion diced
- 3 cups brewed coffee
- 2 tbsp chili powder I also add 1 pkg of premix chili spices
- 1.5 tbs cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Cumin
- 1 ounce Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp Sriracha sauce
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic
- feel free to add fresh hot peppers if you like it HAWT!
In a Large pan or skillet cook 3 strips of bacon. You're cooking this for the bacon fat that the meat will cook in.
Once the bacon is cooked, add the diced onions, and the can of corn beef hash…I know it looks like Ass but it really adds a great flavor and texture to your Chili.
Add your beef, pork, 1.5 cups of the brewed coffee, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and let it the combo cook down.
While this is cooking down, in the pot or slow cooker you're using for the chili, add the following: All the beans, tomatoes, and the tomato sauce. Your cocoa powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt, pepper and garlic. Also add the other 1.5 cups of your brewed coffee and your Sriracha sauce.
Once the meat mixture is fully cooked, add it to your bean/tomato mixture, cover, and cook on high for approximately 3 hours. Turn to low for two more hours to really get the flavor going.
Serve it up with a generous dollop of Sour Cream, some sharp Cheddar and your fave corn chips. Also…a Nice Cold Beer is a MUST!!!
I often serve this as a dip with the nacho chips at parties in the place of salsa…Always a Huge Hit…
