This week the Baltimore Ravens Crab Chili went up against the Philadelphia Eagles Cheesesteak Chili and the winner was Philly!  According to our taste testers the Eagles Cheesesteak Chili had more of a hearty, football vibe to it.

Congrats to Eagles fans and Cheesesteak fans everywhere. We hope you'll try this recipe at your next tailgate and tell us what you think.
