Cowboy Up! It’s Chili Time! This is now Chad’s favorite chili. I created this recipe with the intention of making it ‘stick to your bones good’. Well, apparently it is “Stupid Good” according to the men that have tried it. I guess maybe that means it is so good, you can’t quite come up with the words to describe it.
So thick you can eat it with a fork. So good we are out already. So fast I am making it again tomorrow. Prep to plate in 25 minutes!
