5 Star Chili

Kimi Gaines


When I went to make my chili this past weekend, I did not have all my ingredients so I just started dumping what I had in the cupboard. My husband and son told me this was the best chili I have ever made. I have to say it received 5 stars for this girl. I had 2 bowls which I never do..we all ended up eating 3 bowls each.
