Thick and Meaty Beanless Chili

By March 21, 2018September 20th, 2023No Comments

This chili is fantastic! If you have a family member (like I do) who doesn’t like beans, this is an amazing, meaty, flavorful, spiced chili. Top this chili with all your favorite toppings and you have a hearty, home cooked chili that is great for a cold winter’s night. This chili would be awesome with cornbread, garlic toast or even over a hot dog. Pretty much this chili is great no matter how you serve it.
