Good Old Fashioned Chili con Carne

chile-con-carneI love classic, back-to-basics dishes, and I love experimenting with other people’s recipes to create my own, unique version. Here is the result of my latest, “experiment.” It was inspired by a recipe at allrecipes.com. I then┬áchanged some of the ingredients and have made it my own.

Enjoy.
