Awe­some chili recipe…and so easy to make! Made this last night since it was my turn to pro­vide sup­per for our small group. It got rave reviews and was all gone in just min­utes! Thanks!


Do you drain the beans?


How do you freeze this (ziplock bags, tup­per­ware, etc)? Also, can I use chick­en breast cut in cubes instead of the beef?


What a great recipe this chili is. It does freeze well in Tup­per­ware! Thanks Jenn 🙂
