Bernie's Famous Chili Recipe

Updated on September 15, 2014

Looking for an amazing chili that is full of flavor & real food you want to actually feed your family? My aunt has cornered the market on fabulous food, literally everything she makes is amazing! So clearly I was delighted to get her Chili recipe since it's the only Chili I have ever even remotely liked...much less loved! This recipe is for the masses so if you have a small family plan on leftovers. I live in a house full of boys so we actually eat this whole batch in one sitting.

You have spicing options with the diced tomatoes, they have plain to spicy red pepper get whichever looks good for you. The chili beans also come in Mild or hot so you can adjust to your families desire for spicy!

We typically have Tostitos, crackers, raw onions & some kind of shredded cheese to top off the chilli...and of course the purists can skip the pasta.
