Our new favorite chili recipe, made with three different varieties of Bush’s Reduced Sodium Beans.

Our New Favorite Chili Recipe from dineanddish.net

I’ve always been of the belief that chili was chili and that it was hard to make a chili absolutely more outstanding than the next. Because of that (now I know) misguided belief, I rarely switched things up when we had chili. I would follow my old standby recipe and serve it up as is.

Luckily I was recently working with a client on photographing some various chili, and had the opportunity to try a number of different kinds of chili. All I can tell you is, boy I have been missing out all this time! I’ve always liked chili, but now I have to say I really really like chili. Our New Favorite Chili Recipe

I adapted the original recipe, which was a Wendy’s Copycat Chili Recipe, and created a combination of texture and flavors I love. With three different types of Reduced Sodium Bush’s Beans, this recipe has been an absolute winner with my family. In fact, I recently took it to a family event and just about everyone who tried it commented on how good it was and asked for the recipe!

It’s good to switch things up every now and then, I’ve discovered. If you do, you may just discover something even better than before! Enjoy!

    We love ours and my family refuse to eat anyone else’s chili! They are a little snobby, I think. (Or just loyal to mama)

    Nothing better than a great big bowl of it though!!

    I love a good chili! Just don’t tell any of my fellow hardcore chili lovin’ Texans that I approve of this chili with beans in it! 😉 (GASP) Great pics, and yummy recipe, Kristen!
