CHILI WITH CHEESE
Hands down, this is the ultimate homemade chili recipe. This comforting dish has the perfect balance of beef, beans and spice. It's slow cooked then garnished with a nice helping of shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, cilantro and scallions. Best served with rice or tortilla chips.
CHILI SIN CARNE
