Chili in Bread Bowls Recipe

Some say you can have your cake and eat it, too...I say eat your chili and the bowl, too! I work the "graveyard shift" at the post office in Portland. During those hours, there is no place to buy meals, so I often bring in dishes like this chili to share with co-workers. —:Nancy Clancy Standish, Maine

MY REVIEW

I don't like chili usually but this chili is amazing. I used the bread bowls and it was a hit with my kids and fiance. I will definitely be making this again.

My boyfriend liked the different variety of meats. I didn't use bread bowls or onions, but it was still very good! Kind of a lot to put together for chili, but it was worth it.
