Hearty Chili Con Carne

 

In this post I’ll be a sharing a Hearty Chili Con Carne recipe.

Chili is a comfort food favorite! As temperatures cool down , chili becomes a staple on the menu everywhere. The best chili recipes are loaded with flavor, perfect to serve with a side of cornbread, crackers, or over rice.

Best of all it’s easy to make. You can have dinner on the table in about an hour. This is great for feeding a crowd too!

A pot of chili beans fills the air with such wonderful aromas as it cooks on the stove top. I think this might just be the first meal request when we begin the fall season.

I like that you used a variety of beans and I bet the breakfast sausage gives it some nice diverse flavor. I think pork really is a great accompaniment to beef.

Thank you Stacey. It will be great when it's cooler out. The night I made this, we had a heat streak and it was near 90 degrees. LOL.
