Boilermaker tailgate chili and buttery cornbread from allrecipes.com

On Sunday, I had a craving for some yummy chili with cornbread. So I thought I’d cook some up for the Redskins and Cowboys game Sunday night.

That afternoon, I went on a scavenger hunt at a number of local grocery stores to find all the ingredients for the boilermaker tailgate chili (rated top chili on allrecipes.com, if you do a sort by rating). Ingredients included a little bit of everything: ground beef chuck, Italian sausage, chili beans, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, yellow onion, celery, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, green chile peppers, bacon bits, beef bouillon, beer, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, dried oregano, cumin, hot pepper sauce, dried basil, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika, white sugar, corn chips such as Fritos®, and shredded Cheddar cheese.

After two hours at Costco, Giant, and Trader Joes, I came back home and began to work on my chili. This dish took 2 hours to cook and it was worth all the effort I put into it. The chili was quite delicious, with a little kick to the dish, although it was not as spicy hot as I’d prefer (I didn’t want to risk the heartburn with the baby and all:) To top off the dish, I added corn chips and cheese.

Additionally, while the chili was simmering, I made the cornbread using the buttery cornbread recipe (also found on allrecipes.com, rated third best). The cornbread was buttery and not as grainy as most cornbreads tend to be. I liked the cornbread because it tastes alot better than the jiffy mix but I think I’d like to try another recipe with buttermilk/cream for comparison; this recipe only called for milk and butter.

All in all, it was a wonderful dinner to accompany a rather disappointing game. Skins lost to the Cowboys!
