Mama’s Homemade Chili – The Perfect Comfort Food
Fall is my favorite time of year and with Fall comes delicious comfort foods! There is nothing like sitting down with the family at dinner time and having a heartwarming meal. This recipe for Mama’s Homemade Chili is sure to warm not only your hearts but also your bellies.
The best thing about this seasoning mix, other than the taste 😉 ) is that it doesn’t have any unnecessary ingredients unlike the packaged mixes. It’s also cheaper, too!
I use not only green peppers but red peppers in my chili to make it colorful.
Once it starts simmering it lets off an aroma that fills the whole house.
This chili tastes great with sour cream, cheese, or my husband’s favorite – peanut butter crackers!
