Semi-Homemade Game Day Chili

Semi-homemade Game Day Chili
I’ll be upfront with you — this isn’t really how Dad makes chili. That recipe will have to wait awhile. But this does hearken to a few of Dad’s favorite rules of the kitchen:

1. Keep it simple.
2. Use what you have.
3. Make it tasty.

So, without further adieu, here’s how to make a can of store-bought chili taste like it’s homemade.

Three ingredients: canned chili, elbow macaroni noodles, and shredded cheese of your choice.

Boil water. Should take about 10 minutes to boil.
Add pasta, about 1/2 cup dried pasta per person. Cook pasta until just chewy, not mushy —
al dente.
Drain. Add pasta to bowl(s). Pour canned chili over the top and sprinkle (ok, dump) cheese over that.
Heat in microwave until cheese is melted. This will change depending on the power of your microwave, but 1:30-2 minutes should be plenty.
Serve immediately while in front of pre-game coverage or kick-off.

My recipe:

  • 1 can chili
  • 1/2 cup (or 1 handful) elbow macaroni noodles per person
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese of your choice (or enough to cover the chili)
  • Cook noodles as directed. Drain. Add to bowl. Cover with chili and cheese. Heat in microwave until cheese is melted. Serve hot.

Real chili recipe pending further review. Stand by for final ruling.
