Soul Satisfying Southern Chili | My Kitchen! My Rules!

October 21, 2020

Welcome back friends to My Kitchen! My Rules! 

We all know cold months make us long for warm, soul-satisfying home-cooked meals. Well, nothing takes the chill off of a late fall afternoon like a hearty bowl of chili. Some like it mild, others like it spicy. At my house, we use a lot of spices and temper it whenever my Momma joins us!

It’s simple enough to make ahead and great for freezing and pulling out when you need a last-minute crowd pleaser. This one-pot meal makes a great holiday potluck addition, warms hungry fans at football tailgates, and is delicious enough to be worthy of a Sunday Supper main dish.

Serve it with my fresh-from-the-oven Skillet Cornbread — recipe coming next week!! Subscribe to my Youtube Channel so you don't miss it.

*Includes sponsorship for Dixie Crystals Sugar. Yes, my Chili has just a dash of sweetness from Dixie Crystals Sugar.
