Award Winning Chili

I am always looking for new chili recipes. I love any kind and have several linked from this blog. A couple of my favorites are Skinny Taste's Sweet Potato & Turkey Quinoa Chili and White Chili. If you are looking for a good traditional tomato based chili, this is the ticket! It's not called "Award Winning" for nothing. I didn't have any venison on hand (no one hunts in my family, so if you have some lying around, we will gladly take it off of your hands), so I used ground beef. My six year old helped me make this chili. It's always so fun to have him in the kitchen, and this time was no exception. He told me that he pretends like our house is a restaurant everyday and that he calls our restaurant "Home." I thought that was a pretty clever name. I told him that maybe we should open a restaurant together; he informed me that we won't be able to do that until he turns 15. Deadpan. Try this recipe for a hearty, yummy, satisfying weeknight meal! And don't forget your toppings!
