Half-Time Chili

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by ColoRobO

The original version of this recipe used round steak and ground beef, but I substitute pork sirloin and ground pork, which is cheaper and has a better texture. Great for game day - start simmering this hearty chili In the morning and it'll be prime for halftime. I usually serve it with grated cheese, chopped onion, sour cream, hot sauce, and corn chips.

I tried this recipe for our school's annual Chili cook-off. There were over 30 entries in the contest but THIS recipe WON!!! We won first place...by a long shot! The wine adds such an amazing aroma and taste to the chili. It made a lot of food, so it is perfect for dinner with the family and then left-overs on the cold, winter nights.

Thanks for such an awesome recipe! I will keep this as a staple in our family...I may even call it my own!
