Bubbalicious Burger Chili

Lori McLain


I always keep a box of angus beef or chuck burger patties in the freezer for chili or for cookouts....really nice quality beef for a better price and really convenient! This is especially beefy, but my family loves the beans in it and the chili comes together quick and easy...perfect for game day...you can even keep warm in the crockpot !
