Chili is one of those recipes that warms the body and the soul.

A bowl of this Bacon Bison Beer Chili is perfect on a cold day when the wind is blowing and the snow is flying.  You can wrap your hands around the bowl, let the warmth sink in, while you scoop up spoonfuls of delicious hearty flavor.

I actually enjoy making chili, it is one of those recipes that is always simple to put together, it’s just a matter of adding layers one at a time.  It is an easy recipe even for a beginner cook to try out, because as long as you follow the directions you will find success, and tons of happy customers at the end.

When the snow hit the ground last week and little Miss and I went for a walk, we both were chilled to the bone when got home.  One of us had a snow beard, one of us had cold hands, and we both wanted something to warm us up.

It was chili for me and Little Miss got a bit of warm chicken broth over her food.  She deserved it after all that squirrel chasing on our walk.
