Get Your Game on for the Super Bowl Tex- Mex Style (White Chicken Chili Recipe)

Next Sunday is not just any old Sunday.  It’s Super Bowl Sunday!  If you’re anything like me, by kick-off time you’ll have a houseful of hungry football fans who need food.  And it had better be good food too.  Food-deprived, beer-soaked, Super Bowl revelers can be a dangerous thing!  Sure, you could open a bag of chips, order a pizza or some soggy chicken wings and call it a day, but I have a much better idea.  My easy peasy White Chicken Chili is made with a store-bought rotisserie chicken, can be prepared ahead and is utterly fantastic!

My first introduction to shepherd’s pie was in the lunch line at my high school cafeteria.  That was many more moons ago than I’d care to share.  But, not so long ago that I don’t still remember.  I’d never heard of it before and had no idea what it …
