Sally's West Coast Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
We often have chili cook-offs at our church, so we trade lots of different recipes. I was always mixing and matching ingredients and experimenting, trying to come up with an original recipe that would be a little different. That's how I developed this one, and I never fail to get compliments on it! —Sally Grisham, Murray, Kentucky

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 3, 2009

"If you like barbecue, this is the chili for you! I will be making this again.I made this for a chili cook-off at work. It didn't win with the judge because it "didn't taste like traditional chili", but it was a crowd favorite. Lots of coworkers asked for the recipe.I don't own a Dutch oven, so I made it in a 5.5 qt saute pan and it worked great."
