When the first hint of a chill in the air comes on my family looks forward to the first pot of football chili. It will warm you to your toes and don't worry about what to do with leftovers because there won't be any :)

What a hearty chili that's full of meat and beans. It's perfect for fall and football season. The tomato and chilies give this chili a little bit of a bite but not too overpowering. Chili powder and cumin add a ton of flavor. This is a great chili recipe if you're serving a large group. It will be a crowd-pleaser. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
