I got the basics of this recipe from a friend at a Super Bowl party and tweaked it from there. I do have to tone it down a bit for my wife...and my mom once asked if I was trying to get my inheritance early! People who like spicy food really go for it.—Rob Via, Charlotte, North Carolina Charlotte, North Carolina
