It's Gettin' Chili Down South!

Football season is upon us, and of course, that means plenty of weekends filled with tailgating and gorging on delicious food. One of the highlights of any tailgate? Well, if said tailgaters know what's up, it's chili. And thanks to Mrs. Dash, you can keep your chili a little healthier. That gives you more energy to yell at the game.

Speaking of games, if you're headed to the Texas/Ole Miss game, stop by the Mrs. Dash tent to receive giveaways and sample some chili. Even if you're not going to the game, submit your best recipe to between now and September 15 for a chance to win. Enjoy the weekend!
