While I love our recipe for chili that has been our go-to since we got married and is made with sausage there is something about a thick hearty chili and grilled cheese like you get at your local bar. It to me is just a whole different dish. Part of it is obviously the atmosphere but after perfecting this chili to my liking it serves the purpose I was aiming for.

This is a crowd-pleaser and you can totally adjust the heat for those you’re cooking for!  Also, the amount of water you add can make it thicker or thinner.  The longer you simmer this the better the flavor gets in this chili, so you can totally let this simmer on the stove if you’re home or pop it in the crockpot and when you get home supper is ready!

There are literally thousands of ways to make chili. Don’t even get me started on the noodles in chili debate, it seems more contested than a presidential election.

I’ve determined if I ever run for president my platform will be 2 fold:

      I think with chili salt and pepper are really up to tastes, I normally don’t cook this chili with salt so I didn’t add it to the ingredients.
