Award Winning Chili

Rated as 4.59 out of 5 Stars

"This delicious chili took 2nd place at our local chili cook-off! Bet you can't eat just one bowl. If it is too thick, add water 1/4 cup at a time until you reach desired consistency. Even better tasting the second day!"

This is a good recipe if you like a chili that is on the sweeter side. The wife and I do not, therefore it was not for us. Personally, I think that the wine and/or the steak sauce really hurt th...
