Beef Chili

Share:

This mild Beef Chili is perfect for a cold winter’s day. You can get your comfort food fix from this hearty dish and come away feeling satisfied. It pairs great with a loaf of homemade cornbread and butter. Our preference is a very mildly flavored chili. However, if you prefer more heat in your chili, feel free to adjust the amount of chili powder and even consider adding some fresh chili peppers.
