Gameday Chili

This was my view for every Alabama home football game for the 2010 season.  Jim Bob and I spent most of our Saturdays this fall working with our friends at their game day tent.  The Tide went 9-3 during the regular season.  We're awaiting our Bowl bid, but it looks like we may end up in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando or in the Outback Bowl in Tampa.  Roll Tide Roll!


For the last game of the season, the temperature was in the 40's with a stiff wind.  In other words, perfect chili weather.  My favorite chili recipe is pretty basic.  The addition of Ranch Style Beans, however, makes this version a little more interesting.   Ranch Style Beans are pinto beans with a blend of spices giving it a southwestern flair.  Whether you like your chili with fritos, sour cream, shredded cheese, or topped on a hot dog, this recipe is sure to please.   


Gameday Chili

2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans tomatoes, diced
2 cans beans (I use 1 can Ranch style beans and 1 can pinto beans)
1-1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 Tbsp. parsley
1 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic, minced

In medium frying pan, brown ground beef.  When almost completely browned, add onion and sauté 5-7 minutes, or until tender.  Add garlic and sauté another minute.  Drain grease.  Add all other ingredients.  Cook and simmer.  I combine all the ingredients in a slow cooker and simmer.
