Superb Chili

I didn’t really like chili a long time ago , but for some reason , my taste has changed . Before i got pregnant 8 years ago , i started liking it ,but then during pregnancy i hated it . After my son was born , chili , was something that i can have , but it’s okay if i  never had them anymore . I was always looking for a delicious recipe for chili . Ever since my son was born , i started to have interest to cook anything from scratch , and that’s how i ended up searching and searching for a good recipe for chili . Instead of depending on a pre packaged seasoning the store sells .

I ran across this recipe , a combination of beef and pork , and all the spices that i have on hand and that i used quite a bit actually . This chili turned out to be very delicious , flavorful , and overall , it’s really worth to keep !
