Chili and Football

Football is traditionally a men's game. Add in all available stereotypes and you've got buxom women in beer commercials, technology ads, blood, dirt, and, what else? Chili.

Men also traditionally avoid cooking. Raw meat isn't healthy, mostly, so a little cooking is due. Chili is hard to grill, so other measures need to be taken. A crock pot is low maintenance, and perfect for Superbowl cooking.

Below is a recipe for Mom's Favorite Chili. Whose mom? I have no idea. However, the ingredients are few. What beer should we serve with chili?


  • 1 lb. lean ground beef, browned, drained
  • 1 can pork & beans, about 16 ounces
  • 1 can chili beans
  • 1 regular can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. red pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Mix everything in slow cooker
  2. Cover
  3. Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hrs
