This recipe was given to me by my future son-in-law, Trace Alexander, and is a favorite of ours and will be to any of you who try it! Trace (who is from Texas & a lowyal Cowboys fan) says this is a requested Superbowl Sunday recipe & the only way to serve it is in giant coffe mugs with a side of tortilla chips. (My personal suggestion......if you're serving this to anything more than 4 people, you better double or triple the recipe! This is sooooo good, everyone will come back for seconds!)
