Great Tasting Chili Recipe – A Little of This, a Little of That

This great tasting chili recipe looks delicious an has the perfect name:  A little Bit of This and a Little Bit of That Chili. 

For that is what chili often is when I cook it.  Whatever I happen to have on hand goes in the pot with the chili and beans.

A little Bit of this and a Little bit of that goes into this great tasting chili recipe.

Nothing warms you to the bones quite like a big bowl of hot chili. And cooking chili in one pot on the stove gives you layers upon layers of flavors that you just can’t beat.

See my recipe for one pot chili con carne. It’s another recipe for winter comfort food at its best.

Great Tasting Chili Recipe

Some of the best tasting recipes come from trial and error.  I find that cooking with what you have on hand in the pantry and fridge just keeps adding layers of flavor.  One pot meals like this end up getting a real depth of flavor.

Today’s featured chili recipe comes from a friend who used to blog at My Honey’s Place.  It seems she likes to take a little bit of this and a little bit of that when she cooks too!
