Super Bowl Kid Approved Easy 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!!!

We made Super Bowl Beef Chorizo & Black Bean Spicy Chili for the adults and this for the kids.
It makes every one happy in the family.
You know, the only who loves spicy foods and those that don't.
Can you guess which kid of my loves chorizo? Try...

My oldest son is the driving force for us to celebrate the Super Bowl. Other wise, we would not put as much effort in it. He watches the scores, not just of the teams he roots for, but for the teams across the country.

I let the kids completely steer the wheel in making their chili. They had to approve the ingredients, and make it. The only part I did was chopping the carrots. That and make sure the kitchen did not become a hot mess.

Letting them cook is such a powerful thing and this was such an easy way to help them learn to use a crock pot. They used things they learned in school with things they call 'every day.' No better way!

Ingredients:
3 cups dark red kidney beans
3 chopped raw carrots
1 28 oz can tomato puree
1 cup spaghetti sauce
1/2 tbsp minced garlic
dash salt

Directions:
1. Chop the carrots and have the kids put in the crock pot
2.  Measure the kidney beans and have the kids put it in the crock pot
3. Have the kids measure the spaghetti sauce and put that in the crock pot
4. Open and add the rest of the ingredients
5.  Cook in crockpot on low for 6 hours

Get your Super Bowl on!
