Game Day Chili

Game day chili is a traditional, flavor-packed chili that can be loaded with favorite toppings and eaten in bowls or atop baked potatoes for a hearty, yummy meal.

Game Day ChiliPerfectly seasoned with just the right amount of heat, this chili is a wonderful addition to any game day spread! This is a wonderful chili to serve at the beginning of the week, as leftovers are wonderful and can stretch a day or two.

We love to serve chili over rice or fritos, alongside bowls of shredded sharp cheddar, diced onions, tamed jalapeños, diced tomatoes, and salsa. For weeknight meals, I often bake Perfect Baked Potatoes with Crispy, Garlicky, Salty Skins and serve chili on top. SO delicious!
