Chili Recipe

What a crazy winter; here in Upper Michigan we hardly have any snow which is highly unusual for us, however the cold is really hanging in there. It has been quite awhile since I made chili and with this cold weather I wanted a chili recipe with a little bit of a bite to it. This Chili recipe is one of the best, you’ll love it. This is a large recipe and it will serve about 12 people. You can cut it in half if it’s too much or freeze the rest. It is great reheated. Enjoy!
