I love to cook and bake, especially when our children and grandchildren are here. After spending time outdoors, this chili warms up the coldest winter evening!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 2-1/2 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds lean beef chuck or top round steak, cut into bite-size pieces

"Could I do this in a slow cooker? Would I have to cut back on some of the liquids?"
