How to Make Chili for Everybody

    Sautee garlic and onion in saved grease.
    In crock pot or large cooking pot, add all ingredients and mix well.

  • 3Host a chili party!
    Double, triple, quadruple the recipe, and host a party (can you say Football?)

    -chopped green pepper
    -sliced jalapeno

    Also try serving your chili over baked potato, rice, or noodles.
