I am no culinary artist but I am very proud of my homemade chili. So much so, that I always look for opportunities to enter chili cook-offs. Just recently, my gated community hosted such an event and I won by default because no one else entered. While they raved about my spicy concoction, it meant nothing because I had no competition!

This year, in the spirit of  Super Bowl XLVII, I joined the festivities by preparing my super bowl of veggie variety chili. Enjoy.

Super Bowl Veggie Variety Chili

1 pound of ground beef or turkey

1 cup of fresh diced mushrooms

1 cup of diced yellow peppers

1 cup of diced scallions (green onions)

1 can of petite diced tomatoes

1 can of Bush spicy, mild or regular chili beans

1 can of tomato soup

chili powder

hot sauce


Season ground beef with cumin and put aside.  Saute mushrooms, yellow pepper, scallions and diced tomatoes in a large pan. Add ground beef to the vegetables and brown.

Let the ground beef and vegetables simmer for about 5 minutes. Add a teaspoon of chili powder, a splash of hot sauce and salt to taste.

Add can of chili beans and tomato soup to the beef mixture and let stew for at least 15 minutes.

Serve hot with shredded cheddar cheese or sour cream on top.
