Cary, NC — The Panthers didn’t make it to Super Bowl XLVIII, but on February 2, 2014, Cary-ites can still enjoy a good party while we watch the commercials and check out Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ halftime show. And what will we be eating at the party? From our Facebook page, we solicited our readers for their special Super Bowl recipes and party fare. We received the following from reader Lynette McEvoy of PlanThatParty.com.
We call this recipe Classic Super Bowl Chili because it’s not all fancied up with ground Kobe beef and adzuki beans. At least half the ingredients come out of cans. And on Super Bowl Sunday, that quintessential American holiday, what could be better?
