Superbowl Chili Bar

Score A Superbowl Party Culinary Touchdown


Throwing a Superbowl Party?

Obviously the game itself is exciting...if you like hot buff dudes in tight pants. What? Of course beer and a comfy perch to view the action is a must, but the essential element of any Superbowl party is...the food. It needs to be tasty and plentiful. Don't drop the ball on this. Like this cocky fool did. Check out his football faux pas below.

HE may have dropped the ball, but you don’t have to. To ensure you score a culinary touchdown at your Superbowl Party, serve up a super bowl of chilli. Well, several bowls actually. Keep it simple and economical by setting up a chilli bar and make it a team effort. 
The host provides the chilli. Simmer up a pot of your favourite recipe (you might offer a vegetarian version as well). Assign each guest one item to stock the chilli bar.
This list might include:
Crusty bread and butter
Soft rolls and butter 
Tortilla chips
Carrots/Celery sticks with dip
1 Green Salad
1 Caesar Salad
Diced shallots/green onions
Shredded Sharp Cheddar
Parmesan Cheese
Diced Tomatoes
Avocado Chunks
Sour Cream
Provide some additional snacks – assorted chips and dips, pretzels, nuts, etc. To keep costs down, ask each pair of guests to bring either
a six-pack of beer or a bottle of wine.
Down...set...hut. See you on Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY!!!! The weather is looking clear and chili.
