Chili con Carne

Updated – originally posted November 2, 2008

Some of my favorite recipes are the ones I grew up with. This is based on my mom’s recipe for chili, which she always served with corn bread. It makes a regular occurrence at our dinner table and it hits the spot every time.

UPDATE 10.07.16 – This chili won a chili cook-off! Admittedly, it was a small contest, a fundraiser for my son’s preschool, and most of the other 6 entries were not traditional. But still a proud moment! The only thing a did differently this time was cook it low and slow for about 5 hours.

UPDATE 02.21.17 – Tested this in the pressure cooker – 20 minutes at high pressure, NPR 10 minutes, then added the beans and corn. I ended up leaving it on slow cook for a couple more hours, not because it needed it, but because we weren’t going to eat for a while. Turned out great!
