The Super Bowl means chili, and chili means a big pot of Texas Red. This is my signature super bowl chili; I have made it for Super Bowl Sunday since the ’90s, and it’s the dish everyone asks me to bring to potlucks. That’s why I have so many variations on it – pressure cooker, slow cooker, stovetop, take your pick.

But, Texas Red chili is intense, with its big chunks of beef and its thick, chili-rich sauce. It is for hardcore chili-heads. For the less chili-obsessed, I also make a batch of ground beef and bean (or turkey and bean) chili, which is what people in Northeastern Ohio expect when I say “Chili”. (Yes, I know. We’re not from Texas.)


Of course, chili is just the start. Everyone wants some nibbles, something they can snack on during them game. If the party needs me to bring something more than just chili, I’ll make chicken wings or salsa.
