Super Bowl Chili
Good Housekeeping has the perfect recipe for a Super Bowl party. Let the heat of the chili warm your guests after they come in from the cold weather. You will need.

* 2 pounds of boneless beef for stew (cut into 1/2 inch chunks)
* 4 cloves of garlic (crushed)
* 2 red peppers (cut into 1/2 dice)
* 2 jalapeno chiles (seeded and minced)

* 1/4 cup of sugar
* 2 teaspoons of salt
* 2 teaspoons of dried oregano
* 2 cans of red kidney beans (rinsed and drained) (15 to 19 ounce cans)

Heat half the olive oil in a 8-quart sauce pot until hot. Add one-third of the beef. Cook until browned on all sides while stirring. Remove beef to bowl, and cook the rest off the beef the same way. Add the rest of the olive oil to the sauce pot over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic, red peppers, jalapenos, and onion. Cook ten minutes while stirring. Return the beef to the sauce pot. Stir in the tomato puree and tomato paste, sugar, salt, oregano and 2 cups of water. Reduce heat to low. Cover it and simmer for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Stir in the beans and cook for 10 to 30 more minutes. Serve!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
