Plain old fashioned chili!

Renee King


not a trophy winner but darn good chili great with cornbread. should mention! I used only two of all chilis but the altered recipe to four for heat seekers! if you want a good spicy and flavorful chili that the whole family can eat stick to two of the guerito, jalpeno and serranos
