Hi there! I’ve got a delicious one for you today! This chunky beef chili is a twist to my normal chili I make about once a month. I’ve always wanted to try making this, kind of like a stew but with the flavors of chili that we love.

    I think it sounds perfect with the chunks of beef as well. My chili is usually just beans, so this would be a nice addition. Thanks for sharing on Weekend Bites!
