I really do love football, but let’s be honest, a Super Bowl party is all about the food! While the menus tend to include more appetizer type finger foods and dips, I always like to have at least one dish that’s a bit more filling. It’s a long game, after all! These mini chili bread bowls are so tasty and deceptively easy. They took less than thirty minutes from start to finish! Here’s what you’ll need…
Mini Turkey Chili Bread Bowls
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- salt and ground pepper
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons chipotle chili powder
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1- 28 oz can diced tomatoes in juice
- 1- 28 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
- grated cheddar, green onions, and sour cream for serving
- 24 sourdough dinner rolls
In a large saucepan, heat oil then add onions and garlic until softened (about 3-5 minutes). Season with salt and pepper.
Add turkey, tomato paste, cumin, and chipotle chili pepper, mixing and stirring frequently until the turkey is cooked all the way through.
Add tomatoes and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 10 minutes before serving.
Meanwhile, using a bread knife, cut a large circle into the tops of each of the sourdough rolls and pull off the top (usually taking with it the inside as well). Remove more bread from the inside if desired.
