My husband enjoys this chili because it's quick and easy to make. This recipe is changeable from steak to ground beef, how convenient is that. We have this dish a lot during the winter season with my homemade cornbread.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Your family will love chili this on a cold night. We used stew meat and liked the different texture that it lent to this chili. It's a cross between a stew and chili. Your kitchen will smell delicious while the meat is browning. The seasoning blend is filled with onion, garlic, salt and pepper and, combined with the chili powder, are perfect for the chili and not overwhelming. This is a hearty dinner recipe.
