On the flip side people will come over and be all like, “ugh why is there all this junk food? I’ll just eat later.”

Sure, the Super Bowl can be a time to indulge a bit. But, I think it’s also fun to do fun new takes on old favorites. Enter chili chili chili!! You know my obsession with chili is real.
