The longer this sits in the refrigerator the better the taste seems to get. :)

Chili recipes are great during the colder weather and this chili con carne is delicious! The seasoning blend is perfect with just a bit of heat. Cinnamon adds a hint of sweetness. This chili is simple to make and great for game day. The Test Kitchen
