I love making chili in the fall and snuggling up under a blanket on the couch with loved ones while we eat chili, corn bread, and watch the beloved Broncos! Serve with yummy sweet corn bread.

My husband and I liked this chili. He thought it needed thinning down some but that's easy enough to do. I followed the recipe except for omitting the jalapenos because I am a wimp with hot things. He would have loved the addition though. Instead he added chopped jalapenos and extra cayenne to his personal bowl. Read More

Cuddle Up Chili Haiku: "Pretty good chili. Glad I halved recipe. It still made a ton!" I kept the 1 lb. of ground beef but halved everything else along with using some garden jalapenos instead of canned and we liked it but found that there were too many competing flavors in its ingredient list. No question it was a tasty chili but one that I would make some adjustments to when making again such as reducing if not eliminating some of the seasonings. Read More
