I made up this recipe for a PTA chili cook-off many years ago. The chili seasoning packet came from Make a Mix cookbook. It’s a lot cheaper and tastes better than the store packets. You can add or delete any ingredient in this recipe to taste. This is one of Janelle's favorite meals to make along with cornbread.
