Super Bowl Snacks - Cheezy Black Bean Chili



Count Down to the Super Bowl


Super yummy, super easy,
super chili for the
Super Bowl!

It's almost time for the Super Bowl.... the day we pay homage to the snack food industry.

I thought my menu for our upcoming Super Bowl party was boring.

 "It's always the same," I lamented, "chips, dips and chili."

"Are you kidding?" gasped my astonished husband, shaking his head in disbelief. 

"This is what guys wait for all year long!  
Non-stop TV and food that doesn't require utensils!"


Easy Black Bean Chili
Got to have crowd pleasing, guy food at a Super Bowl party!
Use vegetable broth and it's vegetarian!!

Serves 8

1/2 stick butter (oil or margarine not recommended)
4 cloves garlic (chopped)
2 onions (chopped - about 1 1/2 cups)
2 (14-16 oz.) cans black beans (drained but not rinsed)
1 cup beef or vegetable broth
4 tablespoons sherry (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 (14 to16 oz.) can corn (drained) or 2 1/2 cups frozen corn (thawed, rinsed and drained)
16 oz. Velveeta cheese (diced)

For serving - saltine crackers, corn chips or hot, cooked rice

Optional garnish - Sour Cream, pickled jalapenos


Melt butter in a large frying pan. Add garlic and onions. Cook (uncovered) until soft. 

Add beans, broth and sherry. Cook, stirring occasionally, until it's the consistency you like.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Top with cheese then heated corn. Cover till cheese melts. 

Serve with crackers, corn chips, crusty bread or hot rice.  


For self serve chili all afternoon:
Spritz your slow cooker with pan spray and set the temperature to low.  Let the slow cooker preheat for 10 to 15 minutes.  Add the hot chili to the preheated slow cooker. 

Leftovers?
Not likely but if you have a bit, refrigerate leftovers and serve cold on a bagel.
