I am not much of a sports fan. I tend to actively avoid most sporting events, except March Madness, and then only when Marquette gets it together to make it into the tournament.
The Super Bowl is no exception – I am totally uninvested in the winner and until yesterday wasn’t even sure which teams were playing. But it was an excellent excuse to make a huge amount of chili, take it up to Jake’s, and try and win something.
I made this recipe – but I screwed it up and added more liquid this time. The flavor was there but the texture was more like a soup than a thick chili.
I got third – I blame the texture issue. But hell, I did win something! And I got to try a lot of chili – the first place winner was PHENOMENAL.
Next year… next year, that title is mine!
