Another Recipe from Janice’s Kitchen Corner – Chili!

This is the 17th installment of Janice’s Kitchen CornerChili!

I put together this recipe for Chili which is nourishing and filling for a cool night. This is quick, easy and delicious. I love easy and delicious recipes. Don’t you?

This recipe is on the hot side the way we like it. You may want to cut down on the hot sauce or red pepper flakes to make it not as hot. I serve my chili with cornbread made with yellow cornmeal. I have snapped a photo of the recipe on the container below after my chili recipe for you to try.

    Mexican and Peruvian food are spicy in their preparation and they are to my liking, so this recipe goes very well with my tastes. From the photos, it looks exquisite and very easy to prepare.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe.
