February. The most hated month of the year. There are really only a couple of bright spots and one of them is Superbowl. Even if you aren’t into football or your team never makes it (goddamn Jets), the Superbowl is more about good food, fun commercials and of course the puppybowl.
My friends had their annual Chili Cook-off last weekend. This is easily one of my favorite parties of the year. These people are from Kansas and take their chili very seriously. They get really creative and always delicious and lucky me I get to be a judge :). This year I am taking my favorites from the Chili Cook-off parties and translating it into the perfect Superbowl menu.
Last year’s chili winner, a White Chili, is hands down my favorite chili ever (sorry Mom). I am obsessed!! Kellie kicked it up by using ghost peppers and made it amazingly spicy. So delicious. Great now I’m hungry. I’ve been threatening to make this chili for the past year and never got around to it. This weekend is the perfect time to finally make it and really impress people.
This year for the party I entered my Buffalo Chicken meatballs in the sides competition. Buffalo anything is usually a huge crowd pleaser. These meatballs are no different and they are a healthy and easier version of wings. That is until you dip the whole thing in ranch. This is my go to recipe because it has about 3-4 ingredients and takes a little over two hours. Just make sure to make enough because people love them and 24 meatballs go quick.
Now that I have my menu down the only thing to do is decide between Panthers or Broncos. The Panther colors are much better but I love Peyton! Decisions, decisions.
