I love making chili. It's a go to meal for me. Over the years I have created many different types. This is a lean healthy choice with low sodium and pretty basic ingredients. Leave out the wine or add more it still tastes great!

I always serve cornbread, corn chips and hot dogs so the kids can make chili dogs if they want to...Yum!
