More Super Eats

To roundout the eats for the Superbowl, I made two chilis to acomodate different appetites :) The first was a Turkey & Butternut Chili, with ground turkey sub'd for the beef. I also added some smoked paprika, more chili powder, and a bit of cayenne at the end as I thought it needed a little somthin somethin! In terms of prep, I made this on Saturday and then just threw it in the slow cooker a few hours before kickoff, so it was a very no-fuss dish.

Turkey & Butternut Chili

Meat would have been unsportsmanlike for the Adobo Cornbread Casserole. Somehow it evaded my camera, which is unfortunate as it was kinda purt-y with it's golden crust :) I used a small square baker and 2/3 of the cornbread mix to create a thick, hearty layer of chili in between the cornbread. I kept a touch of agave in the cornbread mix, making it a little sweet. Delish!

Last but not least, I made a recipe for Chocolate Beet Brownies. I'd call them moist chocolate cake bites, as they weren't really like fudgy brownies (I cut back on the butter a little bit...). But they were tasty :) And with beets, wheat germ, and some walnuts, they're good for you, too!



Anyone up for some chocolate? silly question, right? :) Hit up One Frugal Foodie for a giveaway here!

Chocolate BEET brownies?! Actually, I bet they're great. I made brownies with black beans once and they were out of this world amazing!

Mrs. LC said...

what?? free chocolate!?! thanks for the heads up!

I'd love to see the recipe for brownies with beets. Another thing my husband recently he told me he hates. How I would love to make these then see his face when he eats it and I tell him there are beets in them. mwahahaha :)

Your dishes are so creative! Recipes look very tasty.

Erica said...

Cornbread casserole? This sounds like my idea of heaven!

The Peanut Butter Boy said...

Beet brownies...that's pretty interesting. Although it sounds more appealing than black bean brownies, and those are pretty darn good actually!

Reeni♥ said...

Both your chili's sound great!! I love how you put butternut squash in it. And beet brownies are so... different! But beets are quite sweet and moist, I can see how that would work. I have a recipe for black bean brownies, ha, that I want to try but am a little afraid!!

super chili and super beet brownies!!!

Elina said...

I love how open minded your friends are with food. If I brought chili with butternut squash and brownies with beets over, I don't think people would touch them. Both sound amazing though! :)
Thanks for the chocolate link. I haven't seen that one yet. I hope I win it ;)

Jess said...

I should have gone to your Superbowl party instead.

That casserole sounds so freaking good- I love me some cornbread.

Brownies with beets, eh? I've done the black bean brownie thing before and they were actually pretty tasty.

Rachel said...

MAN OH MAN...I am hungry now. I have never heard of BEETS in brownie's!! Gotta try that.

ashley (sweetandnatural) said...

Chocolate beet brownies?! How interesting.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! :-)

Anna said...

BEETS? what an awesome idea. I'm always a fan of making chocolate seem virtuous by adding vegetables.

What an interesting combo with the turkey and butternut squash! Don't think that will fly with my hubby, but maybe if I made the squash really tiny he won't notice!

Kevin said...

The butternut chili sounds good and so does the cornbread casserole. What a lot of tasty sounding food for eh big game!

Ricki said...

I tried a different version of these brownies and found the same thing--but they did taste good, anyway. :)

Elra said...

Turkey butternut chili sounds so healthy and delicious. I should try to make thisfor my husband.
Cheers,
Elra

Jen (Running with Food) said...

I've made a very similar chili - so good! Love it!

I'm really fascinated by the Adobo Cornbread Casserole. I wonder how it would be with ground turkey in the mix??

ttfn300 said...

Elina- i didn't tell them about the beets until afterwards :)

Jen- ground turkey would go well, I was just trying to make an option for the two vegetarians i had over!

Sara said...

This looks delicious, I think butternut is a great addition to chili!

Joanne said...

I love anything with butternut squash and I've been meaning to make Happy Herbivore's recipe for the cornbread chili. It sounds like you had a great superbowl!
