Yummy Chunkie Chile



I thought I would share my favorite, DELICIOUS recipe for chili for comfort and joy... Well, it has always been a smash in my home. We can eat it any time of the day.. I hope you like this version. I personally like it with lot of crackers.. My Hubby loves it with cheddar cheese.. Also, this is great for my Gluten free family members, with minor tweeks.. Our Yummy, Chunkie Chile, tastes best when I make it in our crock pot.. I hope you all enjoy this as we do! :))
