This chili will warm you up on a cold day. I have been making this for years..its kinda the way my Texan mom makes hers. I don't put beans in mine because my kids likes it on all kinds of stuff and it's not always good with beans. For example, they like it on..tater tots, hot dogs, Fritos, french fries... and always topped with cheese of course. Everything is better with cheese please!! I like mine with cornbread.

This is a terrific spin on classic chili. We thought we may miss the heartiness that beans bring to chili - this recipe calls for none - but this recipe remains wonderfully robust and filling. Thanks for warming us up, Debbie! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
