Pig Roast Chili for Superbowl

whole pigroast chili

A pot of chili with smoked pig!

I am writing this on Superbowl 47 (Feb 3, 2013). On Superbowl Sunday’s, we typically make up a big pot of chili and this year is no exception. It is extra hearty this Superbowl because I found a large ziplock bag of leftover smoked pig in the freezer from our summer pig roast to add to it! Yum… Pig Roast Chili for Superbowl!

For the chili base, I used a couple of cans of good whole tomatoes chopped, two small cans of tomato paste, a green bell pepper and a red bell pepper, a big yellow onion, a pound of hamburger, some of my favorite Minor’s beef base, and lots of chili powder and cumin.

I sauteed the onion and peppers, added the hamburger and sauteed that some more, then tossed in everything else. It has been simmering on the stove top all afternoon. The house smells like a cross between chili and the aroma of a whole pig roast from the summertime.

What a great way to resurrect the memories of a pig roast in the middle of the winter duldrums! Superbowl kick-off is coming up soon so I’ll get a giant bowl of the chili, sprinkle some shredded sharp cheddar cheese over the top of it, and settle in for a fun game, some entertaining commercials, and lots of chili to top it off!
