Claire's Chili

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Impera_Magna

My DIL made this recipe w/ ground turkey and it was perfect for a winter day. She shared the recipe w/ me and I tweaked it just a little bit. I make several batches each winter, freezing leftovers in qt ziploc bag so I can pull one out when I get home from work. I nuke it in the bag just long enough so it can be broken up into dish before nuking it til hot. My DD likes it w/ grated cheddar and I like it w/ cornbread. Enjoy!

Impera Magna, this chili tastes great! I used ground beef and halved the recipe. Also used three jalapenos because we like our chili spicy. My boyfriend requested that I add some bell peppers next time but I thought it was fine as is. This simmered on the stove all afternoon - we both had a bowl (or two) for lunch and it was hard work to save some for my father to try when he paid a visit later on that day. Looking forward to making up a huge batch and popping it in the freezer.
