Enjoy Chili By Chef Adrianne Calvo

Award-winning, Chef Adrianne Calvo has created a brand new way to enjoy chili just in time for the Super Bowl. Calvo has added her own twist in efforts to elevate the common, (yet most internet searched) chili recipe by adding her crowd-pleasing short rib. Chef Adrianne’s short rib was named one of the ’50 Things You Need To Eat Before You Die’ by Thrillist in 2015. Combining her short rib with some simple ingredients is sure to be the perfect play on Game Day.

“I have always been a huge fan of watching the Super Bowl with my family and friends,” said Chef Adrianne. “This year, I was inspired to create my very own take on chili; something everyone would be dreaming about long after the game. ”
