Karen's Philly Chili

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Karen..

This was a friend's recipe that I modified so much I now call it my own. It is great on chilly days, but we have it in the summer also. You can make it as hot as you like, but with 4 kids, I have to keep it on the mild side. With a nice warm loaf of home baked bread, it is a hearty meal.

Ya got a great little chili dish here, Karen! I used ground beef, great northern's, kidney's, and a few left-over chili beans. Made a tasty concoction!! Nice and easy to put together, then, let simmer till ready. We sure enjoyed. Thanks for sharing... Laudee
