On Superbowl Sunday I'm going to make my usual Tex-Mex Chili (that's what the recipe calls it). I use a good cut of sirlion steak, browned and simmered in water and then shredded in the sauce. The sauce is made with tomato puree, onion, garlic, chili powder, oregano, cumin, crushed red chili pepper and yellow corn meal. Cook the mixture for about 45 minutes. What I like about this recipe is alot of meat, thick sauce and no beans.

I'm looking for some wine suggestions to go with it. In the past we always had a Cab or beer. I just picked up the Montes Alpha Syrah and have some Cabs and Chianti Classico's on hand, but will be buying some more wine before sunday.

Thanks.

You were on the right track...

I guess I'll never understand the need to pair wine with foods that are definitely not wine friendly. In this case, you will ruin the wine and the food. JMHO.

It's a concept most here can't comprehend.
I went to a Superbowl Party a couple of years ago and showed up with 2 bottles of wine. People looked at me like I was some kind of freak!... Big Grin Stick with beer.

I'm with GA on this. I've said it many times, some foods are for beer... and this is one.

I did that last year. I was very popular for about an hour. Smile

There's a point when some people will drink anything. Even wine.
If you don't have any 1945 or 1961 First Growths, I would stick with beer.

Wine with chili while watching the superbowl? I hope John Madden doesn't hear about this. Razz Big Grin

I know exactly what you mean. I have also seen a look of confusion and bewilderment.
In an attempt to please everyone this year, I will be consuming the following at my Supperbowl (sic) party this year:

beer, ice cold
wine, red, cheap S American plonk
rye+gingers, don't skimp on the lime wedge

I have taken Monday an Tuesday off from work to recoup and de-gas.

Fashion tip: wear pants with expandable elastic band waistline.

Burp.

So true. we don't even watch the game (background noise and halftime show only), but it's a good excuse for a day-long party in the crappiest month of the year. We eat, drink, have a foosball tournament. It's off-the-hook fun. On Monday I'll find out who won. Big Grin
