Football Season is upon us! And it is time to break out the snacks and party food. But I also need a few "Go-To" recipes for those last minute, get-together games, where unexpected guests and hungry men need food! This is a perfect dish to make in the microwave when you already have something going in your oven, or you just don't feel like turning the oven on. It's definitely a Winner (Even if your hubby's favorite team isn't!)
