If you're not from Chicago, you may not be familiar with Mike Ditka. However, if you watched SNL in the 90's, you may know a little about him. Remember the "Superfans" skit? It featured Mike Myers and Chris Farley as fans of the Chicago Bears and their beloved coach of the '86 Super Bowl winning team - Mike Ditka. And in the sketch, every sentence begins with "Da." You know, Da Bears, Da Coach, Da big beef sandwich.
Anyway, regardless of your familiarity with Mike Ditka, foodies have a reason to like him. It's his peppers. This jar of Ditka's mild giardiniera is the perfect topping for a beef sandwich. Don't make da sandwich without da peppers!!!!
