Boarding House Chili

I made this Chili for Jeff in our tiny rental house kitchen (where we were staying while we were building our current home below).  Almost every kitchen tool I owned was packed away except one.   Jeff said it was the best chili he had ever eaten.  Despite the small size of our rental house we had many guests.  Everyone who stayed with us during that period agreed.  It’s won rave reviews ever since.

Best Ever Chili

It’s the perfect meal for a cold, snowy fall or winter night.  Kinda’ like this.
