Grab your foam fingers and pop open the trunk — it’s time to tailgate! Whether you’re set up in a stadium parking lot or having fun parked in your own driveway (like me and my squad), you’ll need easy-to-make meals. Here, I have two ideas that I hope will score big with your football friends: The world’s easiest three-ingredient chili and BLT kebabs smothered in creamy ranch dressing. Of course, the tailgate is optional — these goodies are touchdown-dance-worthy on your comfy couch, too!
This recipe is a game-changer. It is, hands down, the quickest chili you will ever make — and I promise, it also delivers big on taste. All you need is just three simple ingredients, and it’s ready in just 10 minutes. This big pot of satisfying comfort food is perfect for tailgates, last-minute get-togethers, hectic weekday dinners or really anytime you want to treat yourself. There’s no chopping, fussing or hours of simmering required. If you want to ramp up the smoky flavor, mix in 2 tablespoons chile powder and 2 teaspoons ground cumin. I suggest starting with less, taking a taste and then increasing until you hit your preferred amount. I’m really excited for you to try out this recipe — I’ve come to use it over and over again with my chili-loving gang!
