PATRIOT CHILI
This is an adaptation of the first New England chili recipe to win the National Chili Title in 2007. I have altered Jerry Buma's recipe for tiny steak tips instead of ground beef.
Makes 10 servings.
Ingredients:
2½  lbs. lean steak tips, diced to the size of sugar cubes
1½ tbsp.. vegetable oil
1 medium red pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced
4 large garlic cloves, minced
3 serrano chiles, minced
1 (10½ oz.) can double-strength beef stock (or 2½ c. beef stock boiled down to 1¼ c.)
6 tbsp. chili powder
3 tbsp. cumin
¼ tsp. dry oregano
½ tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. sugar
1 (28 oz.) can petite diced tomatoes
1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
1 (19 oz.) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

Instructions:
In 7-quart pot over medium-low heat, sear tips to medium rare.  Then drain and discard most of the rendered fat.
In a separate medium-size pan over medium heat, add oil and cook red pepper, onion, garlic, and chiles just until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
Add cooked vegetable mixture, beef stock, spices, sugar, and diced tomatoes to the big pot and simmer 1 hour. Add tomato paste; stir well and cook another half-hour, stirring occasionally.

-----------------------
KICKOFF CAKE 
Make an easy-to-transport flat cake but use a football-shaped mold for fun! Simply bake your cake, frost it with fudge and pipe football details using a star
tip. When making chocolate cake, use coffee (or chocolate milk if you don’t like coffee) instead of water.
-----------------------
FOOTBALL COOKIES 
Makes 2 dozen
Ingredients:
1 package (16 oz.) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 jar (16 oz.) chocolate frosting

½ tsp. vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp. water

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls and press to fatten into oval shapes. Pinch ends with your fingers and pat into a football shape about ¼ inch thick. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until edges are golden. Transfer cookies to rack to cool completely before frosting.
In a bowl, with an electric mixer, combine frosting and 1 cup powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Spread each cookie with a heaping teaspoon of frosting. Let stand for icing to set, about 30 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine remaining 1 cup powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir in water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until icing is thick and smooth. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip and squeeze a line of icing down the middle of cookies. Cross the line with 4 short perpendicular lines to resemble the laces on a football.
