Ahhh… comfort food. This is my go to chili recipe. I think I could make it with my eyes closed at this point! It is always a huge hit and it’s one of my top rated recipes. Perfect for a big party, football Sunday, or for a good weekly meal prep (tons of leftovers). The best part of the chili is you can customize to your liking, some days I’ll add more vegetables based on what’s in season!
