Texas Style Beef Chili

Guess I really should be calling this Kent-Style Beef Chili because I actually have not been to Texas to try their’s.  There is just something about Chili and Texas that make me thing connected. A recipe for Beef Chili for the fussy one in your life.

I love chili, actually we all love our chili.  The heat factor however seperates the men from the boys ( or in our home the men from Linda).  Wimpy palette, I love flavour but I am not a spicy gal.  Kent normally makes a jalapeno free batch for me, I know boring but necessary.

Growing up chili was always made with hamburger/ground beef but Kent likes using stew beef.  Tasty alternative for sure.  He always goes onion, green pepper and mushroom less just for me.  I told you before I am a fussy eater. This chili is for those fussy eaters in your life and trust me they will love it.
