The rumbling crowds are deafening, but the rumbling stomachs are even louder. It’s game day, and your tailgate crew is hungry – but team spirit only goes so far, and you can’t satisfy hunger with a 20 point victory. What you need is a fourth quarter miracle, a star player. Thankfully, head coach/food blogger Nicole has just the thing: five star-rated White Bean Chicken Chili. Just look at what this dish can bring to your team:
- Strength – Chicken breast and Great Northern Beans give this chili game-changing strength.
- Versatility – Whether at the stadium or at home, from a bowl or on tortilla chips, this chili can play any position.
- Big Play Ability – This dish can get kicked into high gear with the addition of even spicier chili peppers.
So suit up! Grab your gear and lift your foam finger high – your team isn’t going to root for itself. And if hunger decides to rear its ugly head, send it straight back to the locker room, because you just signed a five year contract with delicious.
