Tis the season of rabid football fans everywhere. We have several who frequent our home during the sport. I cook this up, leaving to visit my friends who aren't so rabid, letting the " boys " talk, scream, cheer and boo to their hearts content. They lick their bowls clean, then when I come home I rewash their messes. I also put out a supply of tortilla chips and regular flour tortillas for the dippers and chili burrito makers that gather. An eclectic group my DH hosts throughout the season. Please adjust any seasonings / amounts to your taste. FYI, the cottage cheese is set out for the one's who like the spicy, hot, cold combo.
