Cheesy Chili Recipe With Bread “Broomsticks”

cheesy chili recipe

What’s the perfect food to serve on a cool Autumn night? Chili of course! And when you’re feeding a group of hungry witches at your “witches night in” party, this is the perfect recipe to reach for.

I found this cheesy chili recipe in a recent magazine and adapted it to fit my needs. It’s a great one-dish meal for the girls, and the orange color from the cheese blends in to the Halloween landscape. What’s more is you can whip up some bread “broomsticks” to serve along side and it all makes a whimsical presentation.

Cheesy Chili

  • 1 lb. ground beef, lean
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cans {10 oz each} diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
  • 1 can {15 oz} diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can {15 oz} black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 lb. Velveeta cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes

In a large saucepan cook beef, onion, and garlic until meat is cooked through. Drain if necessary.

Add tomatoes, and black beans, and bring to a low boil.

Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes.

Stir in cheese until melted, and serve.

To make bread “Broomsticks”:

  • 1 can refrigerator breadsticks

Separate bread stick dough – each one will make 1 broomstick.

Cut a slit down the middle of the dough, about 3/4 of the length down.

Twist the two pieces together for the “handle”.

Cut several slits in the opposite end and fan out the dough to create the “sweeper.”

Bake as directed on package.

Serve the witches brooms along with a cauldron of this cheesy chili, and enjoy!
