Tailgate Chili

Tailgate Chili

By September 8, 2011

This is The ONLY Chili I make anymore. I am not a chili fan and I even enjoy this recipe, and my husband who really really likes chili LOVED this, he went so far to tell me  to only EVER make this chili, and that is saying a LOT from the man that does not enjoy to eat.

This does make A LOT of chili so be ready to share or freeze some but it is so good just like it is that I never want to mess with the amounts of ingredients.
