 If you are one of the lucky fans who will be watching their team in Indianapolis on February 5thor like me and enjoying Super Bowl XLVI on my TV at home, it doesn’t matter…you’ll be eating before, during and after the game! It’s just one of those things that ya do and it’s usually tailgating fare no matter where you are.

 

It’s cold in Indianapolis in February, so that means chili weather! I figured if you are a New England Patriot fan than you’re used to “chowda” and other seafood dishes. How about a seafood chili that is sure to warm up any chilly fan!

 

SEAFOOD CHILI

 

2 LBS. DRY GREAT NORTHERN BEANS

2 TSP. SALT

2 1/2 QTS. WATER

1 MEDIUM ONION, DICED

1 MEDIUM BELL PEPPER, DICED

1 CAN OF BEER

1 28 OZ. CAN DICE TOMATOES, DRAINED

16 OZ. CLAM JUICE

4 TBSP. CHILI SEASON’N

2 LBS. ASSORTED WHITE FISH, CUT 1/2”

1 LB. CLEANED SHRIMP

2 6 OZ. CANS CRABMEAT, DRAINED

2 6 OZ. CANS CLAMS, DRAINED

 

SOAK BEANS OVERNIGHT, RINSE AND DRAIN. ADD BEANS TO A 6 QT. ( OR LARGER ) POT; ADD WATER AND SALT. BRING TO A BOIL; REDUCE HEAT AND SIMMER ONE HOUR, STIRRING OCCASIONALLY. SATUE’ PEPPERS AND ONIONS FOR 5 MINUTES OVER MEDIUM HEAT. ADD TO BEANS ALONG WITH TOMATOES, BEER, CLAM JUICE AND CHILI SEASON’N. BRING TO A BOIL; REDUCE HEAT AND SIMMER FOR 1 1/2 HOURS, STIRRING OCASIONALLY. ADD FISH; COOK 8 MINUTES. ADD REMAINING INGREDIENTS AND COOK FOR 5 – 10 MINUTES OR UNTIL SHRIMP IS PINK. SERVE WITH OYSTER CRACKERS AND ENJOY!

 

Now for those New York Giants fans, I decided on one of my favorites…White Turkey Chili! Okay, I know that you are wondering why the heck I would choose this one. No, New York ( or New Jersey where the Giants play) is not known for its turkey population…although the wild turkey has really made a comeback over the years! It’s because of the New York Giants white uniform. They wore the white uniform in Super Bowl XLII against the New England Patriots and they won! They’ll be wearing them again this February 5th!

 

WHITE TURKEY CHILI

 

1 LB DRIED NAVY BEANS

1 LB DRIED GREAT NORTHERN BEANS

2 CUPS TURKEY BROTH

3 QTS. WATER

1 CUP CELERY, DICED

2 CUPS ONION, DICED

1 GREEN PEPPER, DICED

2 (4OZ.) CANS DICED GREEN CHILES

2-3 LBS. COOKED TURKEY, CUBED

3-4 TBSP. CHILI SEASON’N

2 TSP. SALT

3 TBSP. CORN MEAL

 

IN A 6-8 QUART POT SOAK BEANS OVERNIGHT, DRAIN AND RINSE; ADD CHICKEN BROTH, WATER AND SALT. BRING TO A BOIL; REDUCE HEAT, COVER AND SIMMER FOR 2 HOURS…STIR OCCASIONALLY. SAUTE’ CELERY & PEPPERS FOR 5 MINUTES. ADD TO BEANS, ALONG WITH CHILES, TURKEY AND CHILI SEASON’N. SIMMMER FOR 1 HOUR, UNCOVERED..STIR OCCASIONALLY. TO THICKEN, SLOWLY ADD CORN MEAL, STIRRING CONSTANTLY. ENJOY!

 

I was raised on Long Island in New York so I guess I’ll root for the Giants, but honestly I have always been a Redskins fan at heart. Maybe I’ll just sit back and enjoy the food and the game and say who cares who wins! Hope one of them is you team. 🙂
