Using What You Got Chili By Dave Ramsey

Dana Ramsey


My husband also enjoys cooking and grilling and one of his favorite things to make is Chili which he has never made the same way twice. He has won some Chili Contests too! This is one version of his Chili and thankfully I happened to have pen and paper in hand to write down as he was making it! If not it would have been another lost Ramsey Recipe!
