My family and I had a great time on Sunday celebrating the Giantâ€™s big football win!Â Of course any football party needs good food, and ours was made even better thanks to a great â€œBig Gameâ€ celebration kit from Bob Evans.Â The kit included a portable mini slow cooker, football chili bowls and Bob Evans Original Roll and Zesty Hot sausages and some recipes.Â I love the idea of making chili with sausage instead of ground beef!Â Here is the Bob Evans recipe, and it is extremely simple and quick to make.
Bob Evans Sausage Chili
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: Makes 6 servings
- 1 pound Bob Evans Zesty Hot or Original Recipe Sausage Roll
- 1 package chili seasoning mix (1.25 oz)
- 2 cans diced tomato with onions (14.5 oz)
- 1 can light red kidney beans, undrained (15.5 oz)
In large saucepan, crumble and cook sausage over medium heat until browned. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. SLOW-COOKER OPTION: Crumble uncooked sausage into bite-size pieces and put in slow-cooker. Add remaining ingredients. Stir gently. Cover and cook on low heat 4-6 hours. Stir before serving.
They also included a recipe for one of my favorites, Seven Layer Dip.
Cook time: 10 minutes
Makes 8 servings
1 pound Bob Evans Original Recipe Sausage Roll
1 can refried beans (16 oz)
1 package taco seasoning mix (1.25 oz)
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
1 container sour cream (16 oz)
1 can chopped green chilies (4.5 oz)
1 large tomato, diced
1 can sliced black olives (6 oz)
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 jar salsa (11 oz)
1 bag Tortilla chips
In large skillet over medium heat, crumble and cook sausage until browned. Stir in beans, chilies and
taco seasoning mix. Spread sausage mix into 7 x 11 inch serving dish. Top with sour cream and salsa.
Sprinkle olives, tomato and onion on top. Cover with cheese. Serve immediately with chips. Refrigerate
We used our football bowls for holding the tortilla chips, which were perfect for scooping up the dip.
The kids loved the bowls, and I am sure they are going to be insisting on using them for cereal all the time now.Â I also made Ham Stromboli for the party, and the NY Giants themed desserts that I already posted about.Â I realized as I was cooking that all my main dished involved pork, which is probably going overboard a little.Â But no one complained, so it all worked out.Â What foods did you include in your football party?
