Cold Weather, Chiefs, and Chili

Living in middle of the U.S. we get to experience all the seasons.  How lucky are we?  Well, maybe we’ll ask again during those perfect two weeks before and after summer!  Regardless, right now it’s January, and its football season which means two things, cold weather and the Chiefs made the playoffs.  Everyone (minus those few who root for others) in Kansas City are excited and most likely already knows where they’ll be watching the game this weekend if they aren’t the lucky few in a suite at Arrowhead.  Yes, I said suite as the rest of you that will be in the freezing rain are what we call “die hard” fans!  Power to you!

If you are like the majority of us and have a watch party to go to, I’m sure you are looking forward to watching the game with friends and family but also looking forward to all the good food that comes along with it.  But my question to you is, why does socializing always have to mean crushing your diet to the point where you have to say “I’ll start again Monday”?  What if I told you I found the perfect chili recipe to go with cold weather and a Chiefs win?  Not to mention, it’s also very easy to make.

So put on your Chiefs gear, and bring something to they party that not only tastes good, but is good for you.
