Football season is coming to an end this year with the big game right around the corner, which means it’s time to get together with your football-loving friends for a day of sports, entertainment, food and fantastic commercials.
In Canada, these celebrations may look a little different this year now that cannabis is legal and readily available. Data from Beer Canada suggests that cannabis has curbed our country’s appetite for beer with sales volumes falling by three percent in 2019. This year, especially with edibles now legal, Canadians may add cannabis to this time-honoured tradition. As you can tell, Indiva loves to get creative in the kitchen with cannabis and for this year’s festivities, we’re bringing Cannabis-Infused Chili.
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 5 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 10-14 grams of cannabis, ground into a very fine powder
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 can whole peeled tomatoes, with their juice
- 1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
Sliced scallions, cilantro sprigs, avocado, sour cream, grated Monterey jack cheese, and/or tortilla chips
- Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, chili, salt, oregano and of course, your desired amount of cannabis. Cook for about 5 minutes.
- Stir in tomato paste and bring to a simmer.
- Add ground turkey and break it up in the skillet with a wooden spoon. Cook until the turkey no longer has a raw colour.
- Add tomatoes and crush them while you stir. Bring to a boil stirring occasionally until thick.
Regardless of who you are cheering for, remember to be safe, responsible and have fun! Always tell your of-age guests about cannabis-infused foods and ensure any cannabis products are kept safe and away from anyone not legally permitted to consume.
