If you’re serving a crowd for Super Bowl you’ll want to scale up these chili and wing recipes that were originally developed to serve two.

  • Don’t assume that the cooking times will change as the amount of ingredients increase. Check for doneness after the original time and then again every five minutes.

  • You’ll need bigger pans to cook these larger quantities. Be careful not to crowd the pots or baking sheets.

  • Add salt as you cook, tasting as you go to make sure it’s well seasoned.
