Chili is one of my favorite comfort foods. On a cold and rainy day or snowy night, it is nice to be able to eat something warm and tasty. This is an easy recipe that even the kids can help make with minimal mess. It has been passed down from my mom and altered to fit the dietary needs of my family to be gluten free and vegan.
