  1. chili this time of year is the best....and i like how everyone's recipe is a bit different...going to chili cook offs as well give some great ideas on how to change it up...

  2. A cold January evening and a steaming bowl of hearty chili. Can't ask for much more than that, except maybe a second bowl.

  3. Wow! This sounds like it would be REALLY good!

  4. Sounds good I may have to leave out some ingredients for someone in my family so she will eat it

  5. You like things HOT! ;) I make FG chili, which the FG stands for
    F---ing Good! Ha ha! I only use ground beef though. I just might try this recipe minus the jalapeno pepper and switching to mild Italian sausage.
