Beef & Bean Chili

I will admit that I whipped up this Beef & Bean Chili for the sole purpose of picturing it….on a Baked Potato.  That’s right.  I’m about ready to share a big potato round-up I’ve been working on.  Stay tuned…

In the meantime, I’ll assume you’re here for a very basic, but very tasty Beef & Bean Chili recipe.  I pictured it in a bread bowl first, because to me that’s a Win in the Chili World.

I sometimes envision myself as a member of Chili World.
