“Rated by our guests as the hottest ever. An annual tradition at our Super Bowl parties, and generally a favorite. This recipe will fill roughly 3/4 or a lobster pot, so make sure you have a big enough pot or multiple pots. We double this recipe, and it survives a party of 80 or so, although there is plenty of other food to go with it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry bacon in a heavy pot until crisp. Remove and reserve the bacon. POur off most of the bacon grease into a heavy cast iron skillet, leaving a small amount in the pot.
  2. Brown the meat and the garlic in the skillet, while sauteeing the onions in the pot. The meat will take longer, so start that first.
  3. Add, to the stockpot containing onions, in this order: Meats, dry spices, beans, tomato paste, tomatoes, other sauces.
  4. Allow to simmer on low for at least two hours.
  5. Check every 20 minutes or so, and give a stir. A few more stirs early on, to keep the spices mixed.
  6. This is almost always better as leftovers, if you want to let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours, but I make it same day as the game, and it does just fine.
