Yes another food thread, I wasn't going to do one for a while but my girlfriend wanted me to do a chili one this weekend, so here it is.

I use this recipe loads got it off a Texan friend, I am not a big fan of beans in a chilli and he considers it a crime so this one works well for me. I can make enough food to last me 3 or 4 meals. I use rice, tortillas, nachos or tacos with this all the time, it's so YUM!

Ingredients, I used off the shelf stuff really, but you can make your own spices especially the chilli powder and roast and grind your own cumin as well.

This time I had nachos, covered the chilli with grated cheese and sour cream, placed some hot salsa and guacamole on the sides.

Was so good I want to eat more.
