“I found an all meat chili recipe online a couple yeas ago because my family loves the taste of chili minus the beans, however it was a lengthy recipe with many odd ingredients and although it was wonderful it took way too much effort to make. I used that recipe as my base and tweaked it using more easily available items and took out a lot of the unnecessary steps. It makes almost 10 lbs in a 6 QT stock pot but it is always gone before the week is out. After we eat it as chili we use the leftovers for chili dogs and nacho snacks...I have 4 children and they love when I make a nacho bar with all the fixins and they can make their own personal nacho platter with all the things they like on top. Hubby loves it too of course!I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”
