Well, folks, has it been cold enough for you? I just got back from a week in western New York and was happy to have a kitchen to play in while I was there, because as soon as I stepped off the plane into what was (and probably still is) a snowy wonderland, I was thinking about chili. It’s such a warm and hearty dish that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients or take much time to make. I was able to pick up a few things at the store and mix up a big, simple batch of chili that lasted for a few meals. It’s possible you could whip up a batch using just what you can find in the pantry and/or freezer.
