Simplest Chili

I know it’s summer and it’s hot out but occasionally there’ll be those cool rainy nights when you’re home curled up on the couch watching a movie. My recipes are always going to be for 1 or 2 and even then you’ll probably have leftovers. For more servings just double or triple up the recipe. […]
