I’m shocked this is my first chili recipe I’m sharing! But none of them have been quite good enough to post.
My dad makes the best chili. Hands down the best I’ve ever had, even if it is a bit spicy sometimes. So this time around I set out to duplicate his recipe as close as possible. It still isn’t quite as good but very close. And I made it in the crock pot!
I had beef already ground and cooked beans in the freezer that I used, thanks to a meal prep a few weeks ago. I dumped all of the ingredients in the pot before work and it was done and waiting when I got home. I just made some corn bread muffins and had my BFF over for dinner.
So good (and maybe not appropriate for it being 50 degrees).
