Watching the Superbowl? There are certain foods that are synonymous with this all-American celebration. Chicken Wings along with some blue cheese dressing, carrot and celery sticks make a great appetizer. For heartier fare, set up dinner at half-time with a good old fashioned bowl of Chili. Whether you’re serving a large crowd or a small family, how about making it more interesting by switching it up a bit to a Chili Bar?
What to include? I have a vegetarian in my family, so I traditionally prepare a meat chili as well as a vegetarian chili. Build upon some creativity and grab a serving bowl or a bread bowl (a small bread round with the top sliced off and the bread hollowed out, creating a crusted bowl). Start building!
- meat chili
- vegetarian chili
- mashed potatoes – yes!
- grated cheddar, monterey or pepper jack cheese
- sour cream
- sliced scallions
- freshly chopped cilantro
- freshly chopped tomatoes
- sliced black olives
- chopped jalapeno peppers (for kick!)

Set up ‘The Bar’, call in the gang in to help themselves and enJOY your friends & family…EASY!
Don’t forget the Margaritas ~ Virgin for the kids.
