The Big Game

When time is short but a football celebration is in order, a chili bar is an easy way to entertain friends without a whole heap of effort. Classic game day fan fare scores big from diced tomatoes with green chilies. Substitute the mild variety for a more family friendly option. Southern breakfast fundamentals break the huddle with sorghum & hot coffee for a new strategy that makes this play call a real winner. Organize bowls, mugs & spoons on a tray with a few napkins that sport a little team spirit. Create a spot filled with toppings & items to accompany the chili to make it special. Tuck a few swags of homemade Football Bunting on the table or better yet, score the extra point with a platter of Loaded Potato Pigskins With Sriracha Ranch to really take the tailgating snacks over the goal line. Follow my tips, recipes & advice for a game plan the whole team will love.

Game Changer

Inspired by a southern classic, red-eye gravy, hot coffee gives this chili mojo. Sorghum, another biscuit essential, helps balance & mellow the bitter notes for a flawless finish.

2 lb 80% lean ground beef
1 large sweet onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, pressed
3 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 cups hot coffee
1 {12-oz} can beer
4 {15.5-oz} cans dark red kidney beans, rinsed & drained
2 {10-oz} cans diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 {15-oz} & 1 {8-oz} can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp sorghum
The MVP Chili Bar

Cook the ground beef & the onion in a Dutch oven over Medium-High heat 10 minutes
or until the beef is browned. Drain the grease from the mixture & return to the pot.

Add the garlic. Sprinkle the chili powder, cumin & salt over the beef mixture.
Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the spices are toasty-fragrant.

Stir in the coffee & step back to allow the steam to escape.
Add the beer, the beans, the tomatoes, the two cans of tomato sauce,
the Worcestershire sauce & the sorghum, stirring well.

Bring the mixture to a boil over Medium-High heat.
Reduce the heat to Medium-Low & simmer, partially covered, with the lid.
Cook 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Serve with toppings & such from The MVP Chili Bar.

The Extra Point

If your team prefers to tackle a thicker chili, stir together 1/4 cup masa harina & 1/2 cup water. Add to the chili at the end of the cooking time & simmer an additional 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Adjust the chili consistency further with additional water or masa paste.
