Chili with Barley

From Falmouth, Kentucky, Shirley McClanahan notes, “This is one of those quick but delicious, one-dish dinner recipes you can never have too many of. It’s a perfect, stick-to-the-ribs meal on those cold winter days when you need to be warmed from the inside out. My family loves it and even our minister raved about it at a potluck supper.”
