Super Bowl is right around the corner! What are you making for the big game party? You want something that is easy so you don’t miss a single play (or a single commercial) so why not bust out the slow cooker?
My slow cooker gets the most work when I’m feeding a crowd since it frees me up to eat and chat with friends and family. This 13-bean turkey chili starts with a soup mix, adds ground turkey, onion and seasoning to make a game day meal everyone will love.
I host a Super Bowl every year and this is the chili I made last year and also for one of the playoff games this year. It’s been a crowd pleaser and I lightened it up by using turkey instead of beef. Using the slow cooker, my guests can help themselves when they get hungry and I can spend more quality time with my friends. It’s a win-win situation!
This recipe will feed a crowd. My slow cooker is the fabulous Cuisinart 3-In-1 Cook Central 6-Quart Multi-Cooker which is not just a slow cooker, but can brown/saute and can be used as a steamer too. This chili recipe fills the entire 6 quart tub so I hope your guests are hungry!
Football parties are a blast. I found a bunch of fun things at Zurchers party store to make this annual event a bit more festive and get everyone in the game day spirit. They have everything so I got plates, bowls, chip and dip set and more, all with a football theme. Let the festivities begin!
