Is it hot in Texas? Nope, today it’s all about CHILI!


This is a rootin’ tootin’ tasty chili recipe. It’s not your typical ground beef chili because today we are using Chuck Roast with lots of tasty spices that simmer away for hours until the beef is fork tender. Toast some garlic bread in the oven, grate some cheddar cheese for topping and maybe even a dollop of cream cheese too and you’ve got yourself one fine tasting supper!

Do you ever have trouble getting your measuring spoons inside those narrow spice jars? I know I do! I waste a lot of my spices on the counter from the spillage because I try to shake out the right amount into my round teaspoons. Well waste no more my friends! I’ve found the solution. They sell Spice Measuring Spoons that are rectangle shape and fit right inside your jars and bottles. Yes! šŸ™‚
