This chili is a family favorite and is pretty flexible based on what you have on hand! The kids love it with tortilla chips, but Jiffy cornbread with green chilis stirred in the batter and cooked in a small cast iron pan is delicious as well!
Game Day Chili Recipe
Cook meat in a dutch oven over medium heat, browning and breaking it up in pot. Add onion and cook until soft. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. If you are not using Happy Hen Farm meat - you may need to drain off some fat at this point. Add spices and tomato paste, cook another minute, while stirring. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer 2 hours to 3 hours or until thickened.
**Short on time? You can do this in the Instant Pot by using the Saute function until the very last step in the recipe and then turning on high pressure for 30 minutes.
