No. 1 : Quick Recipe

SLOW COOKER CHILI for the Superbowl!

1 TB Olive Oil

3 Red Bell Peppers, chopped

2 Red Onions, Chopped

1 TB Smoked Paprika

1 Tsp Turmeric

½ Tsp Sea Salt AND ½ Tsp Pepper

4 Cloves Garlic Chopped

1 Cup Frozen Corn

1 Zucchini Chopped

1 Yellow Squash Chopped

¼ Cup Chili Powder

1 TB Ground Cumin

1 TB Dried Oregano

3 Cans (15 oz) Fire Roasted Chopped Tomatoes

1 Can EACH (15 oz) Kidney Beans, Pinto Beans, Black Beans, drained and well rinsed

1 Chipotle Chili en Adobo, coarsely chopped plus 1 TB of the sauce

1 (6 oz) Can Tomato Paste

2 Cups Veggie Broth

1 Cup Red Wine

1 Head Kale, Shredded

2 TB Lime Juice

½ Cup Cilantro

Step One

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and sauté the peppers, and onions with the turmeric, smoked paprika, salt and pepper until soft and golden, about 7-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook and stir until fragrant – about one minute. Scrape the mixture into a large slow cooker. Stir in the corn through the tomato paste. Pour the veggie broth and wine over the ingredients and mix well.

Step Two

Set the cooker on low, and cook until all vegetables are tender, about 6 hours. Turn the cooker off and stir in the kale, cilantro and lime juice. Serve, garnished with nonfat Greek yogurt, shredded light cheddar and *pickled jalapeños. Pass corn tortillas or chips to scoop up the deliciousness.

Make sure to add the *Pickled Jalapeños to the top of the chili. The vinegary tang adds great flavor to the bowl of goodness!

No. 3 : Get Creative

When you add wine to a dish, make sure it has lots of good acidity. A good choice for a white is Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. A Pinot Noir like the one below is a perfect choice for a red!

No.4 : Wine FIND of the Week

MATUA Pinot Noir
Marlborough, New Zealand
Total Wine around  $13.00

You may think that New Zealand only makes good Sauvignon Blancs – but wait til you try this jammy-cherry flavored bottle of yum. Marlborough is on New Zealand’s South Island where year round sunshine helps the Pinot Noir grapes to ripen and develop good acidity and delicious fresh berries and dark red fruit. It’s a super cooking AND drinking wine for the game.
