One of the best dishes my mom made at home was chili. YUM! She was always nice enough to make a separate pot for me with no beans (bless that sweet woman who accommodated us three kids). Anyway, needless to say, I’ve been a non-bean chili lover for a long time.
Anyway, since leaving home, living on ramen noodles & saltines for four years, then eventually finding my way around the kitchen as an adult, I’ve perfected my own recipe and thought I’d share the love!
