Blogger Haley of Hungry Haley put together the perfect game day chili recipe and topped it all off with freshly-baked Brazilian Cheese Bread. You could say that we’re a fan!

INGREDIENTS

• 1 medium white onion, diced into 1/2” pieces
• 1 small zucchini, diced
• 3 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 cup chopped curly kale
• 2 tbsp. avocado oil (or grapeseed oil)
• 1 15-oz. can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes
• 2 15-oz. cans beans, drained & rinsed
• 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
• 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
• 1 bag Cheddar & Parmesan Brazi Bites
• Sea salt and pepper, to taste
• 1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
• 1 ripe avocado
• Fresh cilantro, for garnish
• Thinly sliced radish, for garnish (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

PREHEAT OVEN TO 400°

STEP 1
Heat a large (10-12”) cast-iron skillet over medium heat, add the 2 tbsp. oil, swirl, and let this heat up for about a minute. Sprinkle in the chili powder and spices to the oil. Toss in the chopped onion, cover, and cook until translucent and lightly charred, about 8 minutes.

STEP 2
Add the minced garlic and chopped zucchini. Cover and cook for another 5 minutes, or until the zucchini has softened and lightly charred. Add the kale, cover and turn the heat to low, and cook until it turns a vibrant green color. Season with sea salt and pepper.

STEP 3
Now, pour in the crushed tomatoes and beans and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to the lowest setting and let the chili cook for about 8-10 more minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so.

STEP 4
Bake Brazilian Cheese Bread according to package instructions.

STEP 5
Assemble the chili bowls when the Brazi Bites have about 5 minutes left. Scoop the chili into bowls and top with shredded cheddar, avocado, fresh cilantro, and sliced radish.

STEP 6
Remove the Brazi Bites from the oven and serve alongside the warm chili. They’re perfect for dipping or just enjoying as a complement.
