Gameday Wolf Brand Tex-Mex Chili Nachos + Giveaway

Tracking PixelThis is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wolf Brand Chili.

Sundays are a big deal at our house. We have Sunday Ticket. To say we (read: Greg) take our football seriously is an understatement. We usually have three TVs set up with the Texans playing on one TV, the Patriots on another (Greg’s from Massachusetts), and the eight game mix on the third TV. It’s a lot of games all at once.

Food is no joke, either. We will have friends and family over, and are constantly eating tasty food all day. Diets go out the window on Sundays. The grill is always fired up and ready to go by noon! That’s what Football Sunday is all about.


I recently had an awesome chili package sent to me by Wolf Brand Chili that not only included some cans of their tasty chili, but a super cute Texas cutting board, apron, chili bowls, and coasters. Wolf Brand Chili recently launched a thicker and heartier recipe and wanted to reach out to Texas Moms like myself to create a fun recipe. I immediately thought I could use  the contents to create a great Gameday Nacho Bar for my guests to create their own  Gameday Wolf Brand Tex-Mex Chili Nachos! And what’s better on Sundays than some nachos, prepared by yours truly? I know make barefoot in the kitchen look good. I promise I am wearing shorts. This isn’t that kind of happy fun place.

I am a slave to queso. I could probably eat it every day and be happy. But probably enormous. Queso is an important component of Football Sunday. We even bought a small Crock Pot just for our queso! Here’s the nacho bar I set up for Football Sunday!

Chili Nacho Bar

I can most definitely say that the chili is much thicker than I remember. It’s been years since I’ve had a good ol’ bowl of Wolf Brand Chili, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was really yummy and perfectly complemented my nacho bar!

Gameday Tex-Mex Chili Nachos


1/2 block Velveeta
1 can Wolf Brand Chili
Handfuls of homemade pico de gallo (roma tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapenos, lime juice and garlic)
Sliced avocado / guacamole
Tortilla Chips


Let the Velveeta and pico de gallo melt in the slow cooker. When ready to serve, heat up the chili. Drizzle the queso and chili over the chips, and top with more pico de gallo and avocado. You’re all set for game day.

    Our football tradition food-wise is those little pigs in a blanket made with crescent rolls and lil’ smokies! They are so good. Also, I do crossword puzzles. I know, I know, I need to learn to love football if I’m going to live in Texas.

    My favorite way to eat chili is similar to yours, in that I like it as frito pie. But I top mine with cheese and onions.

    I don’t like football, my favorite way to eat chili is scooped in a frito big scoop with cottage and cheddar cheese!

    I love my chili incredibly simple- cut open an individual bag of fritos, pour in Wolf Brand Chili (no beans!), and spinkle on sharp cheddar cheese. It’s SO easy but it just brings back so many memories of when I was a kiddo! I love your idea though. I’m definitely going to try it.

    Woop woop go Pats! 😉 I think you instagrammed a pic of your game day TV setup before and I showed Derek and he was major impressed. If he wasn’t married to me, I think he’d try to marry the whole dang sport. He has season tickets so my game day traditions equal me not watching football when he’s at a game – ha! But, if it’s an away game and he’s home, we always do some kind of football snack. I never think to do any kind of chili or queso though – definitely need to add that to our list of things to try in our new house! 😉

    Oh wow, my husband would go NUTS for that chili kit (and so would I for that matter, ha!) as a native Texan and all things chili lover! We usually make a nacho bar as well, but we always cook up seasoned ground beef and use canned Rotel. I never even thought to try using chili and it sounds SO GOOD. Definitely going to be buying some and eating some this coming Sunday!

    If my hubby’s team makes it to the playoffs (SEAHAWKS) we have playoff parties, they are exhausting but can be fun at the same time.
