Family Favorite Chili

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

The name says it all...this has always been my family's favorite, even though there are a lot of shortcuts. It is simple to make, tasty and fast. What else can you ask for? To serve, I ladle it into a large bowl and garnish it with lots of shredded cheddar cheese and jalapenos. I insert tortilla chips all around the edge of the bowl for either scooping up some of the chili with (nacho-style) or eating along with the chili itself.

Nice simple chili. This was easy to put together and tasted great while watching football. Thanks Jackie for a nice keeper. Made for What's on the Menu Tag.
