“Any time I see beef on sale, I think chili. This recipe comes together very easily and can be modified to fit your needs. I wrote an hour cook time but as long as you do not allow the chili to thicken too much and stick to the bottom of the pot, you can simmer for as long as necessary. If the chili does start to stick, add a cup of water at a time until it loosens. I served with a steam in the bag portion of Spanish rice and it was delicious! Feel free to garnish with whatever you like including cheese and sour cream.”
