I know I have several chili recipes, but chili is one of those foods that can be made and remade hundreds of times and still have room for experimentation. Personally, I’m on a mission to find the chili recipe to end all chili recipes. This one turns up the heat with three different hot sauces,

Both are delicious. While I’m not sure at what point in marriage I gain the rite of passage that is learning my mother-in-law’s

This recipe is one of my childhood favorites. Here’s a big thanks  to my mom for sending me her recipe for it, since I currently am having a hard time cooking (and typing and doing most things that involve two hands) since my “sprained” wrist turned out to be fractured. I’ll do my best to
