The Touchdown Tale,
Everyone has a goal in mind. My goal was to create a popular food that many men love and make it appeal to everyone. Kids will even love the mini footballs. If you want to score big then dig in to the chili and have fun outside and inside of the bun. Grab your pom-poms and hand them to your guests to cheer you on as you display your "Chili-Tizers" A.K.A. (little kicks). You intercepted and scored a touchdown, now treat yourself right with this tail-gate party delight.

How to Make Chili-Tizers
