Guest post: Chili Con Carne Recipe

This recipe for Chili Con Carne is a hearty meal that is great for large groups or even football games. I like making several ahead and freezing them so I have a good, stick-with-you meal whenever it’s needed. Serve with some tortilla chips, corn bread, or tortillas. Enjoy!
