Snacking For the Big Game with a HORMEL® Chili Board

February 6, 2024

Customized with Hometown Fare from Kansas City and San Francisco, the HORMEL® Chili Board will be the Centerpiece of any Big Game Party

With food boards taking over social media, the makers of the HORMEL® Chili brand are going to show football fans how to be the all-star of their Big Game parties.

Over the next several days, people will be making plans to either host or attend a Big Game party. Instead of the typical snacks and food, why not shake things up? Join the hottest trend with a new take on regional specialties from Kansas City and San Francisco and make a HORMEL® Chili Board that will impress your guests. The best part about the chili board is it takes less than 30 minutes to assemble and can be done in just five easy steps!

  1. Start with a board or surface large enough to accommodate two large bowls or pots of HORMEL® Chili (one with beans and without beans) that has plenty of room to include accompanying ingredients and side dishes.
  2. Once you’ve placed your pots of HORMEL® Chili on the board, next fill in around the bowls with toppings such as shredded cheeses, sour cream, chopped onions and salsas. The options are endless!
  3. Add some staples from each participating team market:
    1. Kansas City – BBQ burnt ends, cheese slippers, bite-size cinnamon rolls, fries, corn bread, etc.
    2. San Francisco – Sourdough bread, oysters on the half shell, tater tots, cheese dip/queso, etc.
  4. Garnish your board with your favorite chips and veggies, which are always great for dipping! Some classics are carrots, celery, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, cherry tomatoes and veggie dip. Crackers and cheese cubes are a great option, too.
  5. Finally, have fun decorating the board with team colors, napkins, toy helmets and footballs. Let the board tell the story of the football action unfolding on screen.
