At a recent family gathering my step-dad brought his home-made chili (I wasn’t up to cooking) for dinner.
Now I don’t know if you know this or not but real chili is no where near like the stuff you buy in a can!
This chili is sort of soup-like and very good!
I’m going to make it myself…leaving out the peppers of course!!
Even though the recipe says large cans I’m not sure what that size is…..I would assume as long as you make all the cans the same size it really doesn’t matter!
