Tell us about your recipe
I have always created my own version of everything in the kitchen and this recipe is one that I particularly LOVE to make! It won first place two years in a row at my mama's assisted living facility, judged by firemen! The chili contest was always fun and the residents got to enjoy it for their supper after the judging. My mother passed away at the end of May, but I intend to remember her every time I make it. And I call it Firehouse Chili because of how much those judges loved it! I hope you will too.
