Chili in a corn bread bowl is a fun way to serve a great game day snack. These cornbread bowls are filled with Progresso Smokehouse Pork and Beef Chili with Beans. They are the perfect finger food for the big game.
I don’t know about you, but when I am having friends over for the big game, I don’t want to stand in the kitchen all day long. I make sure that I have great snacks for everyone and can have fun to sit and watch the game too. How do I do this? I plan and prepare.
Once I decide who I am inviting, I begin to plan a menu and a grocery list. I know that I want chips, dips and other finger foods, but I also want something hearty. I know that the big game can sometimes run hours and I don’t want my family and friends to go hungry!
Once I have my grocery list ready, I head off to the store. I make sure I grab everything I need for the perfect game day.
I recently found out that Progresso had come out with chili. I knew I would have to give it a try. Here at Feeding Big, we love chili. I think it is one of our favorite cold weather meals.
Chili warms you to the bone and is one of those great meals that you can customize and make your own. When I serve chili, I make sure I have a great variety of toppings that my family and friends can choose from.
Here are a few toppings we love on our chili:
- Cheese (almost any type will do)
- Sour Cream
- Green onion
- Purple Onion
Just before company comes over, I make some cornbread muffins. I use a regular size muffin tin, but you can use a bigger tin if you would like. I want to make sure the chili bowl is just the right size for grabbing and eating with your fingers.
When the muffins are cool, I slice off a little bit of the top of the muffin. Then I hollow out the inside and spoon in the warm Progresso Smokehouse Pork and Beef Chili with Beans. I set the bowls on the table in front of the topping and call everyone to the table.
I love seeing what everyone will create. Don’t worry about wasting the inside of the cornbread bowl – set them in a bowl and let be a topping.
Progresso has created a great tasting chili and I know we will be trying the other flavors soon. What is your favorite way to eat chili?
