Mom’s Chili

Okay, so it isn’t exactly my mother’s chili. Hell, I’m pretty sure she pulled it off a blog.

But I was thrilled when she introduced me to this simple and hearty recipe, so “Mom’s Chili” it is!

This chili has been approved by my begrudging cook mother, picky-eater brothers, a big-eater friend, and another friend who is allergic to just about everything.
