What to eat while you're watching football this Sunday.
If your weekend plan involves copious amounts of football and sofa time, then you need to fortify yourself. But enough with the chicken wings and nachos already! Instead, consider the luxury of a big pot of stew, soup or chili—something that can sit on the stove all day, ready to be eaten at will. Added bonus: Eating out of a bowl means no sticky sauce or nacho crumbs to clean up. Here are some of my top eating picks for weekends on the sofa.
Chicken and Garlic Chowder
This chicken chowder is more of an assembly project than a cooking project—it uses rotisserie chicken along with pre-cut butternut squash cubes and even frozen sofrito. It’s a perfect rookie chowder.
Soup meets stew (stoup) in this tasty turkey bowl that takes less than an hour to make.
Most of the ingredients in this quick and tasty white bean and chicken soup are likely to be in your pantry and fridge already, except for the chicken thighs and jalapeño.

This fragrant chickpea stew is made with chicken stock, but you can substitute vegetable stock (or broth) to make it vegetarian.
