I could eat chili every day! And I love the aroma as it wafts through the house while the chili simmers. What I don't like is how that same aroma soaks into my clothes and hair. A slow cooker might solve the tagalong aroma problem, but it's not my choice because I would need to brown in a separate pan. What to do? Hey! How about using the oven? Chunky Oven Chili is browned and simmered in the oven using only one pot and in a relatively short time, with no need for the cook to hang over the pot and absorb the luscious but unhumanly aromas. This is an easy and delicious variation on chili that won't make you smell like onions and garlic.
