It is no surprise that Jeremy is a big College Football fan which means the sounds of sacks, whistles and cheers are pretty constant from our TV during this time of the year.  This also means that I have the challenge of entertaining his love for all things football.  Not only does this include meals and snacks but also refreshments. This is more of a challenge than one would think but in all honestly I have started to rely on the One of a Kind Dr Pepper to get us through the College Football season.

 We love all things Dr Pepper but when I went to my local King Soopers I was surprised at the limited edition College Championship can that I found and well, I may have bought a few OR a lot for Jeremy to enjoy during the next couple weeks.  

As I unloaded my car from my shopping trip I suddenly realized that I had WAY more Dr Pepper than I though and boom the idea popped into my head.  The snow was falling and I knew that the house would do a food warm up if I got some chili on the stove but instead of our normal chili I spiced it up with our favorite drink!  Guess what, now, this is the ONLY way I will make chili.

Well, this Dr Pepper One of a Kind Chili recipe totally made our house smell amazing and the taste was really One of a Kind!  The sweet soda makes the spice of the chili the perfect combo.  Even the kids loved making their bowl of chili by topping it with cheese and corn chips.  I, for one, went for the loaded chili and added all the fixings.  As we sat down to watch some College Football and enjoy the falling snow I started thinking about how easy this really is for a Homegating party with family and friends.  Most people love some hearty chili and with the toppings you can totally customize your meal.  Pair this with a cold Dr Pepper and you are set for a great day of College Football!

  12. Dr. Pepper right in the chili, huh? I would have never even considered this - and now I want to know how it changes the taste of the chili. Did your whole family like it? My kids are finicky little buggers. I want to try it, but I can't afford to waste that much food if they won't eat it. I am revved up to try this for our next stay at home and watch it Saturday!
