My Mom's Chili

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by loriyeargan

This is the chili my mom always made for us growing up, and it has become one of my husband's very favorite things to make. We usually use fresh garlic in place of the garlic powder, 4 or 5 cloves chopped up. We usually garnish with shredded CheddarJack cheese and serve with garlic bread.
