Grandma Carol’s Chili

First of all, Happy Birthday to my little sister!  We love you lots and hope your day has been amazing :)

On a cold winter’s day, there’s not much like a pot of chili simmering away for dinner.  Add a side of corn bread, and you’ve got a meal!  It’s an easy soup to toss together, and the longer it cooks, the better it tastes.

Gather around all of your ingredients.

Combine them all in a crock pot to cook on low all day.  Or, if you’re shorter on time, you can make this on the stove top.  Just put everything in a large stock pot and let it simmer for at least an hour.

Top with cheese, crackers, corn chips, etc… whatever your family likes!  This chili also makes a spectacular Frito Chili Wrap!  Just put some chili in the middle of a large flour tortilla, top with cheese and corn chips, roll up, and enjoy.  It is also great on top of baked potatoes, with all the fixin’s!
