My Best Chili
When cold weather is here, I always want a good chili to warm me up. I love the mix of spices in this one and I highly recommend using pinto beans compared to red or black beans that may be a little more pasty. It makes it the perfect recipe to introduce omnivores to beans!
This tasty recipe ready in 30 minutes is very convenient to make in large quantities and freeze!
