The reason I can get behind the Super Bowl

A giant vat of chili, made pretty much like this, but without the masa harina. 84% less garlic, 300% bigger chunks of chuck (thoroughly browned, leaving the aroma of suet lingering in closets days after) and the same number but a slightly different selection of chiles (reconstituted and messily puréed), and with the addition of several kinds of beans (the few Texans among us were not chili aficionados).

1.5 gallons, all gone by the fourth quarter — and there were gumbo and wings too! But in trade we received a fridge full of beer.
