Dad's Chili - Too Tough For Terlingua!

Dad's Chili - Too Tough For Terlingua!

With the Terlingua International Chili Championship kicking off this week, I thought I'd share dad's trophy chili recipe.

He always wanted to enter into the Terlingua Chili Championship, but said they wouldn't accept his application because they couldn't stand the competition!  That, or they'd eat it all before he could get it to the judging table!

Do you have a chili recipe? Care to share?!
