The Best Chili You Will Ever Eat - Dee Dee's

Diane Hopson Smith


Check out the secret ingredient in this chili!

Several years ago I won a chili cook-off sponsored by the technology dept of the bank I was working for. This fun event was for a tailgate party we had prior to a Auburn/Alabama football game.

I later found a recipe that was very appealing and I combined the 2 recipes and came up with this.

Today I believe this has to be "The Best Chili You Will Ever Eat".

Hope you enjoy!
