Fireman Bob's New Chili for a Crowd

Bob Cooney


They say in life, that YOU should NOT change WHO YOU ARE, but LET those who want to be Friends accept YOU for WHO YOU ARE...

I have cooked now for over 50 years, and 25 years in the Fire Service, The Firemen never had a problem with the amount of food I cooked. They even wanted more.
It is to this wish that I will continue to cook like I have all my life.
All YOU Chef's and Home Cooks should be able to figure it ut how to portion it for your Families.
To this end I will be true from now on!
Thank You to All of You who support my recipes and enjoy what I share!
Fireman Bob :)
