All opinions are mine alone. #Nexium24HrGameReady #CollectiveBias It’s football season and we are all about celebrating football Sunday. One of my favorite recipes to make for football Sunday is this Meat Lovers Chili. It has all the spices and its a great main for entertaining all my football loving friends. My favorite way to serve this chili is with all the toppings on a chili or taco bar and let my guests build their own bowls. As we have all gotten older we prefer tailgating at home instead of braving the crowds at the stadium. Another part of getting older for me was that I started experiencing frequent heartburn when I made my game day Meat Lovers Chili and it was definitely putting a damper on my enjoyment of football Sundays. that was until I discoverednexium24hr.com Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis the number one frequently selling heartburn brand. I love to add lots of spice to this chili and the heartburn was preventing me from eating it or being able to doctor it up with all the hot sauce and peppers. What I liked about the Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis is that it stops acid before it starts for all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn.(iii) I was eating all the delicious football food on Sunday and then I would be up all night with horrible heartburn. I definitely was not #Nexium24HrGameReady. After taking the Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis for the 14 days I have not experienced any heartburn, especially the all night heartburn that was keeping me awake and ruining football Sunday for me. Now that I have stopped the heartburn, I am able to enjoy my Meat Lovers Chili and be #Nexium24HrGameReady! The chili is super easy to make and requires minimal ingredients especially if you have a pretty decently stocked pantry. What I love about this recipe is that I was able to get everything at Walmart when I was picking up my Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis. You can find the Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis in the antacid aisle. After you are done picking up your Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis, head over to the grocery aisles and you will need to get the following to make my Meat Lovers Chili.

You may notice the absence of beans in my chili. Back when I suffered from heartburn and before I discovered the Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis, I blamed the beans and eliminated them from my Meat Lovers Chili recipe. I soon came to realize that it wasn’t just the beans giving me heartburn but I did find that I liked my Meat Lover Chili recipe better without the beans. I do have another recipe for beans with chili beans that you can make in the slow cooker. I can link that for you HERE.
If you are not a beef eater you can sub the beef for ground chicken or ground turkey and the recipe is just as good!
This recipe is basically a dump in the pot and let it simmer type recipe. The trick to making it great is making sure your peppers and onions are diced small so that you can get the perfect bite every time. Here are the rest of the steps:
- Add your butter to the pot on medium heat and let it melt,then add your peppers and onions. If you are using the jalapeno this is when you add it to the pot. Cook the peppers and onions until they are soft.
- Crumble your ground beef into the pot and let it cook with the peppers and onions.
- Make sure you are breaking up the meat into a fine crumble as it cooks.
- When all your meat is browned you may want to drain it. I use a higher fat beef so that there is more flavor, so I have to drain it. If you use a lower fat beef or turkey you do not have to drain. You be the judge.
- Add your tomatoes, salt and pepper, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and cayenne to the pot and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and let it cook for about 25 minutes. Stir it occasionally so the meat doesn’t stick to the bottom and burn.
- After it has simmer for about 25 minutes, add your tomato paste and one can of water using the paste can to measure. Then add your cinnamon sugar to the pot.
- Bring the pot to a simmer and stir well until the tomato paste is combined. Let simmer for ten more minutes and you are done.
This Meat Lovers Chili is one of my favorites because it takes so little time to prep and cook that you can make it right before your guests arrive. I don’t recommend making this in the slow cooker but if you are having a party, you can make the Meat Lovers Chili on the stove and add it to a slow cooker to keep it warm. One of my favorite Game Day Party Hacks is to serve this chili as part of a nacho, chili or taco bar. I set up a table with the Meat Lovers Chili as the center of the buffet and put out bowls, spoons and all the toppings and accompaniments I can think of. Some of my favorites are:
- Tortilla Chips
- Taco Shells
- Shredded Cheeses
- Cheese Sauce
- A Variety of Hot Sauces
- Bean Dip
- Sour Cream
- Hot Peppers
Before I became #Nexium24HrGameReady I was eliminating all the fun toppings like the peppers and hot sauces and eating this Meat Lovers Chili was no fun at all! Now I get to have all the hot sauce and peppers that I want. Game Day is certainly more fun again without having to worry all day that I will be up all night with heartburn. Nexium® 24HR Clear Minis has been a GAME CHANGER (get it?) for my Game Day entertaining. I hope you enjoy this Meat Lovers Chili recipe as much as my family and friends do.
