Big P's Classic Chili

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"My family loves this recipe. Kid-friendly, great for sleepover nights. The key is to chop all veggies big so the flavors get incorporated but they're able to be picked out by the picky eater. Pair with honey cornbread and call 'come and get it!'"

Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend, about 1 1/2 hours. Add kidney beans; simmer for 10 more minutes.
