With football season coming up, I’m pulling out all of my recipes that are easy to make and great for feeding a hungry crowd. This time of year, my slow cooker is essential. I throw together the recipe below a couple of hours before kickoff and then I can let it sit on “keep warm” all the way to the end of the fourth quarter.
You can make this dish as spicy or as mild as you like. I like to add a cup of hot salsa along with the other ingredients for an extra kick. Or you could add ground cayenne or chipotle chile, or a couple of diced chipotles in adobo sauce, which would add great sweet-smoky flavor. Any way you make it, it’s a guaranteed touchdown.
