"My mother was given this recipe by a friend years ago. I've made it for many occasions...perfect for Super Bowl parties (Go Rams!) or taking to work. I have yet to prepare it without getting multiple requests for the recipe. It's a great recipe to freeze or make ahead -- it tastes great the second day!"

Yuk! I was disappointed in this recipe. It was bland, bland, bland. I added sooo much more chili powder and cumin. Heck I even added some brown sugar. It just was not what I was expecting.
