Best Ever Chili

Nothing better than a big bowl on a cold day. This is easy to make and quite tasty. Great with a handful of crackers.

The nice thing about chili is it is easy to make and hard to mess up. Cook it on low heat and allow the flavors to cook slowly. Top with shredded Colby Jack cheese, chopped onions or just crackers. Growing up, my grandma always put a little bit of butter on top of her saltine crackers. She would make 10 or so up and have them on the side of the plate. I remember watching her dip the crackers in it and she used to tell us grand kids “only way to eat chili”. Needless to say, this is how I eat it now too.

I made this on the stove top in a 6 quart stockpot.  It’s a quick recipe to make and you can use your leftovers for a totally different meal like later Baked Potatoes or Hot Dogs.
