One-Pot Game Day Chili
Servings: 8 servings
Calories per serving: 357 kcal
  • 2 lbs 93/7 ground beef
  • 28 oz low sodium crushed tomatoes
  • 15 oz low sodium kidney beans, drained
  • 15 oz low sodium pinto beans, drained
  • 12 oz Vienna Lager beer (lagers, ales, or even stouts will work well here)
  • 10 oz Rotel Mild Tomatoes and Green Chiles
  • 1.5 packets McCormick Mild Reduced Sodium Chili Seasoning (53 grams)
  • 1 medium sweet onion, chopped (110 grams)
  • 1 medium jalapeño, seeds removed and diced (14 grams)
  • 4 chipotles in adobo, chopped (60 grams)
  • 5 cloves garlic (20 grams)
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large pot like this, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmery and hot, add ground beef. Season with 1 chili seasoning packet and cook, breaking apart with a spoon as beef cooks. Once beef is cooked through, drain excess fat and return pot to heat.

  2. Add beer to deglaze pot, then add all remaining ingredients. Stir to combine, then lower heat to a simmer for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until onions are tender. Stir chili occasionally as it simmers and add salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Depending on your game day setup, you can leave the chili on the stovetop on low heat to keep it warm, or you can transfer it to a slow cooker to take it outside. You can even do the simmering in the slow cooker or do everything in an Instant Pot using the sauté function for cooking the beef.

  4. If desired, serve chili with sour cream, green onions, corn chips, and cheddar cheese.
