Secret Ingredients For The Perfect Chili

January 20, 2012

Through out the years, I have found a similarity that exists in every southern household: they all have the best chili recipe, or at least they think they do. Everyone has a secret ingredient that makes their chili the best, but don't ever try to ask what it is; you will be answered with the tactful response, "I'd tell you but then I'd have to kill you". Some chili recipes have been handed down in the family from generation to generation and some are just the result of a creative attempt turned successful. So, if you don't mind sharing, what is your secret chili ingredient? Do you have a special recipe for a bowl of chili that will keep you and your loved ones warm all winter long?
