This chili is why Super Bowl Sunday exists

BA's Best Beef Chili Recipe

Because Super Bowl Sunday is nothing without a bowl of chili by your side, we took it upon ourselves to come up with what we consider the best version out there. A purée of three kinds of chiles add just the right hit of smoky heat, while three cuts of beef keep things juicy. And just when you thought it couldn't get better, a bottle of cold beer and lots of bold spices like cumin and oregano add even more flavor. When you're ready to serve, set out bowls of toppings so everyone can create their own bowl. Some ideas to get you started: Sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped red onion, cilantro leaves, pickled jalapeños, lime wedges, Fritos, maybe even a buffalo wing or two.
