Super Bowl Beef Chorizo & Black Bean Spicy Chili

So, whether you are rooting for the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks for the win, many will be tuned in Sunday February 2, 2014, not only for the outcome of Groundhog's Day, or for Puppy Bowl X, but of course for the Super Bowl XLVIII!!!

So, if course, tradition calls for food. Lots of it.
We made this chili for the adults and Super Bowl Kid Approved Easy Chili for the kids (which is also a vegetarian version) of what we are making. A way to make everyone happy!

I have read that on this day alone, people around the world eat millions of chicken wings, orders for pizza goes up 36%, and the day of and after are the days that people eat the most (not on a holiday). I am sure someone out there is trying to make Super Bowl a holiday and some day they may win. 

Until, many join on this Sunday, hold parties, go to bars, whatever they have to do to watch this game.

In my house, the moving force is my son. Yep, your read that right!
My 7 year old has been watching the scores all season long and it is fair to say that football and baseball are his two favourite sports. He relishes on them and could watch them forever, I am sure.

So in honour of my son, even if just the few of us, we will have a little something something for the super bowl. I am making a spicy chili for my husband and I (and any kids daring to try- mine might) and then we are making chili for the kids. 

Hope everyone has fun watching the Super Bowl! 

10 oz Beef Chorizo
3 1/2 cups Cooked Black Beans
1 Cup Dark Red Kidney Beans
3- 15 oz cans Tomato Sauce
1 long green pepper chopped
3 raw carrots chopped
28 oz can Italian Style Tomatoes
1 tbsp Minced Garlic
1/2 Cup Chardonnay
dash of salt

1. Chop the carrots and the green spicy pepper of choice and just drop into the crock pot
2. Open all the other ingredients, combine, and stir
3. Cook on low in your slow cooker  for 6-8 hours.

Good luck to both teams!!
