On those cold, winter days, this chili is warming and filling. Feel free to adjust the amount of chili powder to your personal taste.

Absolutely Wonderful!! The chili was simple yet, tasty. I went back for thirds and was sooo full. I added Cumin to the chili and I also add diced Japaleno's to the cornmeal mix. Hubby and kids didn't care for the cornmeal dummplings, next time I will made some traditionally for them. Thank you, what a great recipe.
