Star wide receiver, Adam Thielen, hosts food fests



August 29, 2019 - 10:05 AM

Adam Thielen’s Thursdays usually are busy. The star wide receiver has a full practice with the Minnesota Vikings as they implement their game plan for the upcoming opponent.

Thielen’s football those days isn’t limited to working out with his teammates, though. This season, he’s hosting “Thursdays With Thielen,” which basically is a chili-fest across the nation focused on the cuisine of cities teams playing in the Thursday night game represent.

Through a partnership with Hormel Foods, Thielen will oversee — and sample, of course — unique chili recipes created by notable chefs from across the land. It all starts with the kickoff to the NFL’s 100th season on Sept. 5, when the Packers (think brats) visit the Bears (think pimento) .
