Grandma's Chili

Cindi Rushton Recipe

By Cindi Rushton Carush40

This is a chili recipe my grandmother always made, and has been handed down through the generations. It's more of a chili soup, than chili beans. Very warming, wholesome, and good on a snow day! Makes a large pot to serve many, or to have as leftovers. My family always eats it all though! Good for reheating if you have a busy week ahead. Let me know what you think? *I do everything in 1 LARGE pot. You can also use 2 cans of the same beans. It originally called for the kidney beans, but I like the added chili flavor of the chili beans.
