Andy loves chili. I love chicken noodle soup. So, I make them at the same time because they both freeze and reheat well. Keeps up both happy, he doesn’t have to eat “too chickeny” soup and I can avoid the heartburn from eating chili.
I have used many different recipes in my life, but this is the one that gets requested the most and the one you are likely to find in my freezer all winter long. This one is similar to the many Wendy’s copycat recipes readily available online. I usually at least double this recipe. Admittedly, I have even tripled it so I had enough for guests and freezing.
I make this in large batches since it provides me with a few quick painless dinners over the winter, and it is a favorite of impromptu visitors to our house. We have a few neighbors that also love this chili. This recipe can also be easily reduced, math isn’t my strong suit, so I leave those division problems for you to work out.
