Autumn Chili

Autumn Chili

I know it just barely turned Summer not even a week ago, but with the weather we have been having the last three days, I couldn’t resist making this recipe, especially since my husband asked me to make it. This chili is perfect for cold, rainy days. Best of all, it gets better on the second day when the sauce really thickens up! Perfect to have for lunch on the go in a thermos too.
