Spooktacular Chili

Fight Night Feasts (Halloween Special) Spooktacular Chili

Tonight, the UFC returns to Las Vegas after five weeks away in Abu Dhabi.  The UFC Vegas 12 fight card is headlined by a middleweight bout between former champion Anderson Silva and “Primetime” Uriah Hall.

On this very last day of October, which is also known as “Halloween,” it is quite chilly (see what I did there) here in the northeast.  My wife asked me to make a pot of chili, some comfort food, before we take the kids out for Trick-Or-Treating.

For today’s “Fight Night Feats” I am taking my ordinary chili and spicing it up just a bit.  With today’s added kick I give to you the recipe for “Spooktacular Chili.”

This meal is a very easy meal to make.  It is something that you can throw together and not worry about until you are ready to eat.


2 lbs. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 green pepper, chopped
2 to 3 ribs celery, chopped
1 large (28 oz.) can crush tomatoes
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
2 cans kidney beans or pinto beans, drained
1 tsp. pepper
3 tsp. chili powder (I use the McCormick’s Hot Chili packets)
hot pepper to taste, crushed cayenne
1 tsp. garlic salt

Here’s where I kicked it up a notch. I added 1 habanero and 1 jalepeno pepper as well (sliced)


In a large skilled, brown the ground beef.  Drain well.

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker, stir well.  Cover and cook for 7 to 8 hours on LOW, or until done.

Top with shredded cheese and there you have it, Spooktacular Chili.
