Super Bowl Chili

  • Food

Any Super Bowl hostess worth her weight in salsa knows that the menu for the big game ought to include chili.

At our house, chili starts with this:

It’s got all the spices you need and it makes a great big pot of beefy tomatoey chili. However, when one of your guests has an allergy to tomatoes, you need to take a different approach.

Enter this:

Ruby Tuesday’s White Chicken Chili

6 C. Chicken stock
1 lb. Bag Great northern Beans (soaked in water overnight)
2 medium Spanish Onions, chopped
6 C. diced cooked Chicken
2 Jalapeno peppers, seeded diced
2 diced chili peppers
1 1/2 tsp. Oregano
2 tsp. Cumin
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 C. Salsa
1 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
Salt to taste

Simmer beans, half the onions, and half the garlic for 2 hours in the chicken stock or until the beans soften, stirring frequently. Add chicken and salsa. Sauté pepper, spices, and the remaining onions and garlic in the oil and add to the chili. Simmer for one more hour. Garnish with Sour cream on Monterey Jack Cheese.

It’s wonderful and delicious. And yes, there is salsa which contains tomatoes. However, it’s such a small amount of tomatoes in such a big batch of chili that it’s not enough to bother my friend with the allergy.

Give it a try. And you don’t have to wait for the next Super Bowl, either.

  1. Sounds yummy. If I ever get off this diet I will give it a try (chili spices are a big no-no).

    Pitchers and catchers report in 11 days.

  2. Sounds delicious and low fat (if you leave off the sour cream and cheese). I’ll give it a try. I notice it doesn’t use chili powder. Is that right?

  3. I love chicken (or pork) chili and made some a few weeks ago, almost like yours, but I did throw in some diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers. I almost used it for my C, too. Yours looks yum….but where is the Cornbread? Gotta have cornbread!

  4. I love the two alarm kit – it’s perfect for a great chili. I usually make mine with Morning Star Farms Crumbles rather than meat and lots of beans and tomato and for an extra kick, fresh jalepeno – YUM!!!!

  5. Yummy!! I absolutely love tomatoes, I would be so sad if I were allergic. Where could I get that 2-alarm chili kit you have pictured? We’ve been making the same chili for years and have recently decided to try something new. I’ll definitely be making the white chili….maybe even tonight (thanks for sharing the recipe) since it’s such a gray and gloomy day!

  7. I have been wanting to try some white chili for ages. Yours looks wonderful. (and a big enough batch to feed about 10 people!)

  8. Also a quesion. Not to bust your chops, but, salsa has tomatoes in it so how do you add a cup of that for a tomato allergy? You can just leave the tomato sauce out of Wick’s if you want. It still comes out fine. And, we always add beer instead of water.

  9. And I thought being allergic to wool sucked. o.0

    Ya know, I’m not thinking baseball when Lucia mentions the pitchers and catchers. Yes, I’ll be in the naughty corner while I dream of chili.

  10. Wow! I sure wish I’d been at your house for the Super Bowl Party. My host obviously didn’t know that chili was supposed to be on the menu. Yours looks and sounds soooo good.

    This weekend I fell off the diet wagon. Like a big monstrous THUD. Lots of beer, margaritas, chips & salsa, … well you get the idea. How’d you do?
