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!

    **McCormick Chili Mix was used since I ran out of chili powder. **chopped jalapeno peppers to make it a bit more spicy is optional **The kids always top their chili with sourcream & chives & Fritos Corn Chips These tips kick up the flavor profile a bit.
