Scotty's Medium Hot Chili

Janet Scott


My hubby loves to make Chili, he grabs this and that....
I watched him make it and wrote everything down.
You can make it much hotter adding more of the hot ingredients.
The cook time below is long because it gets better as it simmers!
I highly recommend making your own. It's not hard at all to do.
