Super Bowl Sunday!
It's what the guys live for!
Are you attending a party this year?
If only they would change the game from Sunday to Saturday....

What delicious food will be on your menu this year?
We are going to be serving 
Frito Pies and Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars!

Could there possibly be anyone out there that
does not love a good Frito pie?
Don't open up a can of Hormel Chili....
to make a good Frito pie,
you must start with a good chili!!!

1 1b. Ground chuck
1 lb. bulk sausage
2 T. butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bunch celery, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can chili beans
1 beef bouillon cube
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. Italian seasoning
1 t. Tabasco sauce
2 t. chili powder

Sour Cream
Shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the ground chuck and sausage together. Drain and set aside. Melt the butter in saucepan, and sauté the chopped celery and onion for about five minutes. Add the browned chuck and sausage to a large stock pot, then add the celery and onion. Do not drain the cans of beans and stir in the beans to the meat and veggie mixture. Add the bouillon cube. Season all. Allow to simmer for at least four hours….covered.

To assemble, place a handful of Fritos in a bowl. Top with ladles of chili. Add chopped fresh onions, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese!  


Foodie Friday Today!



  1. ummm....we do love us a good Frito pie...had one at the basketball game on Tuesday...not the good chili you make, tho. :)
    Son has a Superbowl party every year and dozens of people show up...everyone brings their favorite drinks, finger foods and we have such a good time.
    Ya'll have fun...xoxo
    O, and I'm taking Jalapeno Popper Dip, grilled sausage wrapped in puff pastry and Lil Smokies in Apple Jelly and spicy mustard...

    1. I have a request for Little Smokies too BJ! I hope y'all have a great party! It's that once of year fun....do you suppose The Cowboys will ever make it back? Here's hoping!!

  2. Super Bowl Food! Yessssss!!!! ,-)

    'Pop' is bringing his family-famous Mac and Cheese, next door. Was going to bring chicken liver pate too, but only if he can find chicken livers. Oh my, those things are both deeeeeeeelicious! Don't know what other food they will have.

    I don't go next door for the game, etc. But have my own G/F goodies here! :-) I can watch some Hallmark Movies. :-)

    Go Denver and Peyton!!!!!!!!


    1. Oh la la..sounds fabulous!! Wonder if he would share his recipe! I love hearing what everyone is planning for the game! Anyway...make it a good one Tessa!

  3. Go Denver!!!! Yeah another Denver fan!! :)Oh i hope Manning gets to go out with a bang! I'd like to see that. When my daughter was in the band in school Frito Pie was our staple every Friday night! :) We have only attempted to make it at home once or twice... and not with good chili .. we always used the can chili. Still tasted good though..but not as good as if we were at the football field... something about the atmosphere i think... :) Hugs! deb

    1. I totally agree Deb! High school games and Frito Pie...nothing tasted as good as that! My husband and I attended college with Archie Manning, so we are big Manning family fans! Let's hope for a SB win for Peyton!!! Thank you for visiting today!

  4. It looks pretty tasty. Your dog is adorable in his jersey. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
