There is nothing like cold weather to make one hungry for some chilli! My husband loves it and it’s a mix of pork and beef to keep it a bit healthier.
My parents used to host a chilli cook-off every year where all of their friends would come over with different chilli recipes. My parents alway tried something new and exciting for the occasion, but I always preferred my dad’s basic chilli. It was easy, warming and hearty – everything chili should be. I recently adapted it to put in a slow-cooker, and I also mixed beef and pork meat so that it was a bit more heart-healthy, but also because pork is cheaper than beef, but holds the flavour really well, so you would never notice.
I hope you like it!
