Cin's BBQ Chili

Straws Kitchen


My husband was always used to eating 'thick frozen noodles' before we were married...easy to cook for himself.

I wanted to create a homemade recipe and incorporate the noodles to surprise him one evening.

Well, to my surprise, it turned out to be a very tasty dish, and he loved it.

That was years ago and we still like it.

All who have tried it really like it too.
