Momma's Chili

Kimberly McDaniel


This was the very first meal that I cooked by myself when I was a child. My mom taught me how to cook this, and I have "tweaked" it over the years, since my family likes it spicy. I have been married for 20 years and this is one meal that my husband and child say "No one can cook chili like you!" Makes me feel great!
