chili cookoff

earlier I posted some copycat soup recipes, and it got me thinking about some of my favorite chili recipes! Chili can be a perfect meal to make for company or on a cool winter day, and though traditional chili is delicious, I started pondering all the different types of chili. Throw these ingredients in a crock pot or simmer on the stove, but make sure to make extra for leftovers and freeze to have on hand during the holidays.
