Chili With Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Wendelina

We lovingly refer to this as "German Chili" in our family. My grandmother started putting potatoes in her chili and my father won't eat it any other way. People think it sounds crazy until they have a bite! Give it a try!

This is the way I have ate chili my whole life. It's how it was made by my Mom & it was also a huge hit in my grandparents cafe-always a customer favorite on their menu. It's all I know as far as chili is concerned. Outstanding recipe! My chili varies from one prep to the next; I love to add new things & modify it according to my mood & cravings, but one thing that never changes is that the potatoes always make it in the pot! :)
