I picked up a pre-packaged chili mix at a specialty store last week and was excited to try it. I made the chili according to the directions and served it right up to the kids. They knew instantly that this was NOT my chili. To be fair and honest, it was good, but they knew it was not my chili. I can tell you that with a good recipe and some directions, making it from scratch is not difficult. It takes the exact same amount of time and energy.
Renee and I were working on the bread bowl for a different recipe but since she had the bowl ready, we decided to put the chili in the bread bowl. It was so good! There is nothing that says comfort food like chili or soup in a bread bowl.
Enjoy the chili in the bread bowl, on a hot dog, hamburger or just by itself. These are both simple to make and the chili stores well. You can make extra chili and freeze some for later.
We will link the recipe to the bread bowl at the bottom of the recipe page. The recipe for the chili serves 6-8 people. The recipe for the bread bowl makes 3 bowls.
