Game Day Chili & Charcuterie Board

I’m not sure if there’s anything as yummy as a bowl of warm chili on a cool autumn day. For some reason, it just feels right. Plus, chili is the perfect addition to football season! With all of that being said, I wanted to share my chili recipe and topping charcuterie platter on my blog.

I do want to warn everyone: this recipe is for a huge pot of chili for entertaining. If you want a smaller amount, just cut the recipe in half. Enjoy!

Ingredients for Chili

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 2 white onions, diced
  • 2 bell peppers, diced (I use one red and one green)
  • 8 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2-15.5 oz cans of red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 c. beef broth
  • 2-28 oz cans of diced tomatoes
  • 2-28 oz cans of crushed tomatoes
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 2 tbs cumin
  • 4 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbs black pepper
  • 1 tbs kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes


SautΓ© the ground beef, peppers, and onions together until the peppers and onions are tender and the meat is cooked through. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

Add the kidney beans, beef broth, and tomatoes and stir. Add the spices. Simmer on medium for about an hour, and then enjoy!
