Chili Con Carne

Chili Con Carne 9

Ok now we got the wings down, let’s get on to the main course for your Super Bowl party. I love chili, but I want to know who said it has to have beans in it? If you skip the beans this is a great Low Carb meal. Now if you remember a month ago I admitted to my obsession of dried spices.  Well this is the recipe that spurred my obsession. If you don’t own many dried spices, after trying this recipe you will definitely change your mind. This is my mom’s recipe for chili and there is almost as many spices in it as meat. I hope you love this recipe as much as my family and friends do at our annual Super Bowl party.
