15 Best Chili Recipes for Watching Football

If football has an official dish, it’s got to be chili. In my opinion, no football party is complete without a pot of this hearty, spicy stew simmering on the back burner.

Whether you’re looking for a classic beef chili, a crockpot or Instant Pot chili, or something a bit more off the beaten path, here are all of our very best, very favorite chili recipes for your game day party!

BEST TOPPINGS FOR CHILI

A bowl of chili just isn’t complete without some toppings, don’t you think? Here are some suggestions for your table:

  • Shredded cheese — a definite MUST!
  • Sour cream
  • Diced avocado
  • Diced red onion
  • Sliced green onions
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Tortilla chips

What to Serve With Chili

Looking for some ideas for what to serve alongside your chili? Wedges of Southern cornbread or garlic knots are an excellent choice. If you’d like to balance your chili with some greens, then mix up a giant bowl of Caesar Salad and let guests help themselves.

HOW TO STORE AND FREEZE CHILI

Chili, just like most stews, is almost always better the day after its made, so feel free to plan ahead with this one! Your chili will keep in the fridge for about five days and can be reheated over low heat on the stovetop.

If you happen to have some chili leftover after your party, it freezes very well. Pack it into freezer containers or bags, and freeze for up to three months. Thaw overnight in the fridge, or just reheat the frozen chili straight from the freezer.
