The nights are chilly…
and there is nothing better on a chilly night, than CHILI!
It’s comfort food at it’s best.
This is my favorite chili recipe.
My husbands too!
I’ve made it for parties and it gets devoured.
Whether we are having a party or not I make a lot of Chili.
I either freeze some of it, or give some to friends. Perfect to bring to someone who needs some help with dinner. I’m sure we all know someone who would love the comfort of a bowl of Chili right now. The circle of life brings births and deaths and illnesses and at those times comfort food is there to help.

- In a dutch oven ( I use a 9qt dutch oven and it fills it to the top) On medium heat, saute onion garlic, ground beef, ground pork until all meat is cooked.
- Add tomatoes, beans and spices. Stir and heat on medium until it comes to a boil, turn on low for at least ½ hour and hour is even better.
I like my chili topped with diced onion or scallions and cheddar cheese and sometimes diced jalapenos.

I love Chili all year long, but especially when the weather get cool.
Pile it in a bowl,
pour it over tortilla chip,
pile it on a baked potato,
smother some on your hot dog,
believe me it’s ALL GOOD!
