Super Bowl Recipes

I was reminded today that I never posted the two that were requested, so here they are:

SUE-SUE'S CHILI ( Sue Sue is my mom)

2 lbs ground meat ( ground turkey works fine)
1 large onion chopped
1 C chopped green pepper
2 cloves garlic ( chopped)
1 rib chopped celery
1 can tomato paste
2-3 cans tomato sauce
1 can diced tomato
1-2 cans pinto, black, or kidney
2-3 TBSN chili powder
Cumin to taste
Salt & Pepper to taste

Saute onion, pepper, celery in oil - add garlic
Brown Meat and then add above mixture. Add seasonings and let simmer 2-3hrs or longer.
*MY NOTES* ~ You can also add a can of rotel. I also use all organic canned ingredients and I have found that it does make a difference. Now that Hunts has added their organic line, it really is easy to find. The longer this cooks the better it tastes. YUM. Serve with fritos and cheese on top.


1 10oz box of frozen spinach
1/2 C mayo
1/2 C sour cream
1 C grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1 C shredded Pepper Jack
Optional ~ add chopped artichoke hearts

Preheat oven to 350. Grease small casserole or baking dish. Thaw spinach in microwave and squeeze excess water until dry. Combine all ingredients except for Pepper Jack cheese and pour mixture into casserole dish. Top with the Pepper Jack and Bake 30 mins. *MY NOTES* ~ I have made this without the pepper jack on top and it is just as good. We especially enjoy this served with blue tortilla chips or wheat thins!
