Chili For 2 ( Or 4)

Rose Daly


I found this in the 2003 Taste of Home Annual Recipes cookbook. It was sent to them by Norma Grogg of St. Louis, Missouri. Since I like a meatier chili, an extra 1/4 pound of ground beef was added.But even if the extra beef hadn't been added, I still think it would be enough for 4. After simmering, I did a " taste test " and added some crushed red pepper flakes for more heat. If you don't add the crushed red pepper, it's very mild. If desired add some cheese to each serving.
