“This is a basic chili recipe, no frills nothing special. I've learned that this is fantastic to keep in the freezer... Chili, chili burgers, chili hot dogs... possibilites are endless. I love this for a quick chili burger, I fry up a burger patty on the foreman grill, put it on half a hamburger bun, put chili on it, onions on it and shredded cheddar cheese on it. UBER yummy and takes about 8 minutes to make.”
