Randy's Chilli

I have developed this recipe, via trial and error, over a period years. This is its ultimate evolution and by all accounts, delicious. This is perfect on a cold winter day with a warm piece of cornbread (I like it on top of Frito's topped with cheese and red onion!) or during the summer accompanied by a tossed salad. Regardless, I hope y'all enjoy it!


Serves: 4

  • ⅞ ground beef
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 cloves pressed garlic
  • 2 cans kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
