It’s a tradition around the mansion really. Every year on Super Bowl Sunday I begin cooking early. – nachos, a pot of chili and either a coconut cream or chocolate cream pie. I know that’s a WEIRD menu (with the pies), but they are all of Mr. S’s FAVORITE foods. After cooking, I leave and hit the stores to shop with the girls. What goes on after that….I don’t know and I don’t care (as long as nothing is broken when I get back). Sometimes there’s a crowd of guys over and other times Mr. S spends the day alone. Either way, it’s the same menu.
So once again this year, I’ll be pulling putting those Tostido’s on the baking sheet and dolloping Old El Paso refried beans, some cheese and LOTS of Old El Paso Green Chiles on top. Then I’ll take the easy way out and use my “usual” recipe for the chili – which is – grab a package of Carroll Shelby chili mix and add a few “extras” beyond the beef, tomatoes and beans that they call for (like EXTRA Old El Paso Green Chiles, some black olives and STEAK).
One of the things that I like about Old El Paso Green Chiles,( which come in 4.5 and 7 oz cans), are they’ll liven up your go-to favorites. Fat-free and with only 10 calories per serving, Green Chiles are not spicy, but will add a unique flavor to your dishes that the whole crowd will love!
Anyway, this year I think I’m adding this Green Chili Cornbread that I found on the Betty Crocker site to the menu.
- 1 cup Original Bisquick® mix
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 2 tablespoons sugar, if desired

Old El Paso and My Blog Spark provided me with that cool football shaped platter, 2 cans of the Old El Paso Green Chiles, and some football themed paper goods just in time for Super Bowl Sunday (as seen in the picture), and they’re giving a gift pack just like it to one of our readers as well!!!
Thanks to My Blog Spark and Old El Paso for providing all of this for my review. I was in no way paid and all opinions are strictly my own.
