Usually the football watching staple in the Boggs household is ground venison (now bear) mixed in with rotel and velveeta. Usually a pound of meat and half a block of velveeta is plenty enough for a couple people.
Those all look good! I keep telling my wife we need to make a big pot of beans. NM style. Anasazi and pinto beans, meat of choice and plenty of green chile. Add a side of green chile or jalapeño cornbread.
White/green chili is easy to make - chicken, white beans, and a jar of 'salsa verde' (green salsa.) Or you can go the blend-tomatillos-with-jalapenos, garlic-and onions route. I just use the walmart brand s-v and it works fine. (Also works well with pork.) Video shows one way to make it.

Search recipes for “Charro Beans”! One of my favorites with bacon or maybe some finely cubed backstrap and fresh Hatch green Chile!
Easy to do in camp if you get a solar powered crock pot! Set it and forget it.
I make this for "cold weather" food. I also get Mexican sausage (chorizo) and grill it a bit for a sear, and then cut it into chunks and cook with the soup. Add some cheese on top and some crushed corn chips (Doritos/Fritos, etc) and it's a full meal!!!
Yall were killing me this morning. I sat in the blind freezing (16 degrees and wind) reading all this qnd all I had to eat was a cold jar of "spotted dick". Tomorrow I'm taking a thermos of homemade chicken soup.
For the 60" of snow over the weekend we had homemade chicken soup with dumplings. Sorry, no pics of the soup, but here is a pic of the truck about halfway through the storm. This happened on the opening day of our rifle deer season. First time I've missed an opener in 45 years.
Grew up in Texas and beans were always separate from the chili. Usually had Spanish rice with the meal. A big scoop of rice, a scoop of beans, and cover it all with the chili. I know, the beans end up in the chili, but we’re never prepared that way!
New Mexico red and green chili are awesome! Also love a big batch of green chili posole! Makes me want to take a trip through New Mexico and over across Arizona…
I grew up with kidney beans in my chili so that's all I know. Cant go wrong either way and they do end up in the same place. By the way Treeline, I have to admit that I had to look up what a can of Rotel was. I do the same, diced tomatoes with green chilis in them (just different brand).
