Tired of turkey?
There’s more to Thanksgiving than the staples, and Rachael Ray is serving up something that might just score with the whole family.
Her hearty Touchdown Chili – which brings the heat and a generous helping of beef – is the perfect companion for kicking back on the couch and watching football, regardless of which team you’re rooting for.
“I named it ‘Touchdown Chili’ simply because I made it on the first day of the season for my team, the Jets,” she tells PEOPLE. “My husband and I love chili so much.”
Continues Ray: “Every time I make it, instead of making the same recipe over and over, I try to mix it up and make something completely different.”
The recipe was designed to be served on The Rachael Ray Show‘s Two Buck Truck, a food truck that rolled through the streets of New York for one day, selling lunches for $2 a pop, to benefit the celebrity chef’s Yum-O! charity, which is devoted to lowering obesity rates and eradicating hunger among American children.
