Relates Gerry Kellar of Nixa, Missouri, "If I have some leftover chili, I freeze small portions in muffin cups. Later, I can have an easy chili dog by heating a portion and serving it over a cooked hot dog."
My husband, Steve, actually created the recipe for this meaty chili when he was in high school...he entered a chili cook-off contest and won! I'm usually the one who makes this now, but Steve insists the way he makes it is better!
My husband and I are retired with grown children, so it's nice to have a chili recipe that makes a small amount. Mushrooms make this chili stand out from any other varieties I've tried.—Anne Elsby, Chilliwack, British Columbia
