Hearty Italian Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: Beginning when I was just 5 years old, I was my grandmother's constant helper in the kitchen. And, like her, I can't seem to follow a recipe without changing it! That's how this one came about when I got bored with plain chili. The first time I served it at a potluck, people passed around copies of the recipe. My husband and I have three grown children and three grandchildren. -Chloe Buckner, Edinburg, Pennsylvania

"My family really liked this chili. It was easy to make and very tasty. To suit our personal tastes, I did add a little bit of sugar and some garlic. I kept everything else the same. Thanks for sharing!"
