I specialize in preparing Appalachian dishes, which, simply put, utilize common ingredients and produces a lot of flavor and feeds many people on a small budget. This chili tastes great, is easy to prepare and can also be served over spaghetti if desired. This is what you would call "Grandma's chili."

  1. In a large cooking pot, pour in the beef and chicken broth and crumble in the burger.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Add all other ingedients, except for the beans and the spaghetti, stirring after adding each one.
  4. Once the chili begins to boil, reduce the heat so that it will boil slowly with the lid on.
