Of chili, that is. White chicken chili, to be exact.
We rendez-vous'd with friends last night for the game. As you well know, the Super Bowl has evolved into a major food event for us Americans. Some people enjoy creating the giant spread for a house full of people, others prefer ordering a stack of pizzas, and some just do the potluck kind of thing. That's what we did. Neil and I brought guacamole & pico de gallo.
Euge came armed with fresh veggies. MaryBeth (our gracious hostess) treated the kids to little smokies in blankets and a mixed bean dip and mini crabcakes for us adults.
Then, there was the chili. Brian provided one of the best batches of white chicken chili I've had in a long time. It was spicy, flavorful, packed with white beans and the chicken was shredded but remained tender. It was just plain good! Come to think of it, he made some awesome red chili last year at another get together at MaryBeth's. Hmm, I think we know what his specialty dish is. Neil was inspired and is working on his own version tonight. Maybe we have a chili cook-off in our future?
Incidentally, Brian writes a blog too. He's extremely witty and a talented writer. You may want to click over and check him out. http://www.theunkemptmind.blogspot.com
