This Chili Party is a FUN and easy dinner idea!
Earlier this week, I hosted a Wolf Brand Chili dinner party with some friends while LIVE Tweeting about it.
Confused? Believe me, my friends didn’t know what that was either. ha! Basically, I just talked to people on Twitter about what I was doing for the party. It was super fun and I heard our hashtag #1TexasChili was trending for a while. I guess a lot of people like chili, especially during this season of fall weather and football!
I’m excited to share my party with you today because it’s a very simple idea and something you can quickly throw together. There is NO cooking involved, only heating up chili and dicing toppings. That’s my kind of party!
I’ve also got a fun Free Party Printable Collection along with a giveaway today!
We had a Chili Bar full of all kinds of toppings to try on your chili. If you haven’t tried Wolf Brand Chili in a while, now is the time. My friends all agreed that it was great. These are women that love to cook homemade chili and probably haven’t tasted this brand in a while. I love it because it’s not only tasty, but fast and easy! After doing many taste tests, we gave it two thumbs up.
There are so many great ideas for chili toppings!
Along with the usual, cheddar cheese, cornbread, crackers and onions. I had the following toppings: tortilla chips, Fritos, banana peppers, red peppers, red onions, avocado, chives, tater tots, blue cheese, smoked gouda cheese, hot dogs, sour cream, mustard and ketchup.
I had small cups and spoons available for everyone to sample toppings before they decided on what toppings they would choose for their final big bowl. We all ended up just using the small cups and getting full from taste testing. It was really fun!
The top three favorite toppings were smoked gouda cheese, Fritos and avocado!
Coming in a close second was blue cheese. My husband told everyone he thought you only needed a few crumbles, that a little goes a long way. He was right! Just a few sprinkles of blue cheese was heavenly.
The kids loved the tater tots and really, so did I! I actually loved mixing all of the veggies together. I like the red pepper because it gave the chili some crunch. But some didn’t like their chili crunchy.
My son just realized that he likes chili after going to a cub scout camp out and he was all over this taste test. It was fun to create something that both kids and parents enjoyed together!
There was so much chili left over that I made up layered Chili in Jar for more friends and for me to store in my fridge. With good canned chili like Wolf Brand Chili, this is so simple and really cute! My free printable circle tags work perfect on the jars too.
