George’s Chili Recipe
While I was away last week my husband George came up with his own Chili Recipe. Thankfully he saved me a bowl because it is really good. I mean really good, like the best chili recipe. In fact, if you read the comments someone used this recipe and won a contest. Maybe I should change the name to award winning chili recipe. I think you will really like it.
If you love a good chili try my Cincinnati Chili. It is served over noodles. I love serving this recipe to a crowd. If you like those one pot meals my chili mac can be made in a skillet. We also love this pressure cooker chili. It makes a super quick and delicious weeknight dinner. When we have all day to let something cook Crock Pot Chili is always a crowd pleaser. It is a great stress free recipe when company is coming over. Don’t forget to serve these chili recipes up with the World’s Best Cornbread. I promise you this recipe doesn’t disappoint.
